Stone Harbor, NJ, May 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- He gained worldwide fame as the drummer for The Beatles, but the multi-talented musician, singer, songwriter, and actor has an artistic talent that will be showcased at the Jersey Shore this summer when Ocean Galleries hosts “The Art of Ringo Starr.”

For two weekends in June, Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue, Stone Harbor, NJ) will showcase Ringo Starr’s exquisite artwork, which will be on display at two locations and available for acquisition. “The Art of Ringo Starr” will open at the Stone Harbor gallery on Friday, June 13 and run through Sunday, June 15, 2014, with special receptions from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, June 13 and Saturday, June 14; as well as 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 15.

The following weekend, Ocean Galleries brings the collection of Ringo’s artwork to Caesars Atlantic City where it will be displayed in the Tiberius Room (third floor) from 6:00 PM until 12:00 AM on Friday, June 20 and from 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM on Saturday, June 21. Anyone who acquires Ringo’s artwork throughout the June exhibition run will have the opportunity to meet with the legendary artist at a private reception and have a photo taken on Saturday, June 21 prior to the All Starr Band’s performance at Caesars.

“It is an honor to host this historical collection of contemporary artwork,” explained Kim Miller, owner of Ocean Galleries in Stone Harbor, which was one of three galleries in the U.S. chosen to host the icon’s artwork in conjunction with Ringo’s summer All Starr Band tour. “We have had so many calls already from our clients and others that are eager to own a piece of rock ‘n roll history - artwork by the renowned Ringo Starr. We can’t wait to share this amazing collection of artwork!”

All of the vibrant artwork selections in the collection were composed by Starr electronically. Ringo began composing art on his computer in the late 1990s while on tour. “While I was touring, it gave me something to do in all those crazy hotels you have to stay in on the road,” explained Starr. What started as merely a diversion to pass the time, has since developed into an iconic collection of artwork. His initial creations focused on “faces” featuring a variety of expressions, but have since evolved to include a wide array of subject matter, many tied to the recurring theme of “peace.”

Over the past several years, he has created art for various groups and organizations, including Knot For Violence, Imagine World Peace, WaterAid, and Timberland boots, as well as an original design for the Hard Rock Signature Series T-Shirt.

Ringo’s new artwork will feature “Self Portraits” from his early days to now, as well as a new series of Peace Signs, all depicted in his bright and colorful palette. As always, Ringo’s proceeds will benefit the Lotus Foundation Charity, which funds, supports, participates in, and promotes charitable projects aimed at advancing social welfare in diverse areas.

“The Art of Ringo Starr” will include nearly 50 pieces of his artwork, all available for acquisition. The collection will be on display at Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue, Stone Harbor, NJ) on Friday, June 13 through Sunday, June 15, 2014, with special receptions from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, June 13 and Saturday, June 14; and 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 15. Ocean Galleries brings the collection to Caesars Atlantic City where it will be displayed in the Tiberius Room (third floor) from 6:00 PM until 12:00 AM on Friday, June 20 and 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM on Saturday, June 21. Anyone who acquires Ringo’s artwork throughout the June exhibition run will have the opportunity to meet with the legendary artist at a private reception and have a photo taken on Saturday, June 21 prior to the All Starr Band’s performance at Caesars.
