2024 Art Search for "Naga and the Captainess"

Naga and The Captainess

by: Cjay Roughgarden, Stephanie Shipman, and Jackie Scott
from: Oakland and San Francisco, CA
year: 2024

Deep in the Black Rock Ocean, treasure and cargo are streaming out of the broken hull of a ship – the Aldrovanda. The ship belongs to an adventuress, who travels the world in search of knowledge, treasure, and botanical curiosities. She ferries cargo to distant ports to fund her travels. But something has gone wrong! The ship is sinking, and looming above is a giant sea serpent, looking intently for someone or something. His name is Naga, a treasure-protecting serpent, sworn to guard something that was on the ship. Did he sink it? Or is he there to help? What will we learn about the enigmatic captain from her quarters? What stories will be told around the fires? What will we discover in the treasure chests, floating into the waves?
