As Ringo Starr hits the road this summer with his 14th All Starr Band, a collection of his art, composed by Starr electronically, will make companion stops at galleries in three select cities. Ocean Galleries was chosen for one of the gallery shows in conjunction with the Atlantic City performance.
Ringo began composing art on his computer in the late 90s while on tour. He has created art over the past few years for 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 present day, 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 US Foundation Charity, which funds, supports, participates in, and promotes charitable projects aimed at advancing social welfare in diverse areas.
Ocean Galleries will host the exhibition featuring Ringo’s artwork in the Stone Harbor gallery location beginning Friday, June 13 through Sunday, June 15, 2014. Anyone who acquires Ringo’s artwork throughout the exhibition run will have the opportunity to meet and have a photo taken with the legendary artist at a private reception on Saturday, June 21 prior to the All Starr Band’s performance at Caesars in Atlantic City.
The show is Free and open to the public with all artwork available for acquisition. Gallery hours are 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM throughout the summer season. For more information, call 609-368-7777 or visit www.oceangalleries.com
