Jane Seymour: Up Close and Personal
The exquisitely talented actress and artist, Jane Seymour, visits Ocean Galleries for a Memorial Day exhibition, bringing an extraordinary collection of her latest oil paintings and watercolors. “Jane Seymour: Up Close and Personal” opens Friday, May 15 and runs through Monday, May 25, 2015.
Due to the popularity of the artist and her artwork, the exhibit will open for a special preview on Friday, May 15, a week prior to Ms. Seymour’s arrival, and will be open daily from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM in the Stone Harbor gallery until Thursday, May 21. The preview week offers an opportunity to view Jane’s artwork in an intimate and relaxed setting. A private reception prior to exhibition hours will be held Memorial Day weekend offering a unique exchange with the artist as she personalizes artwork acquired during preview week.
Beginning Friday, May 22 through Monday, May 25, the gallery will be open from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM for the “Jane Seymour: Up Close and Personal” exhibition.

Ms. Seymour began painting more than 20 years ago as part of a healing process for personal challenges experienced at that time. Since then, Ms. Seymour has emerged as an established and accomplished painter, creating an intimate world of delicate watercolors, colorful vibrant oil paintings, pastels, and bronze sculptures.

Peter Max: A Tribute to America
Legendary artist Peter Max returns to Stone Harbor over the fourth of July weekend, bringing with him a never-before-seen collection of his greatest and most-revered imagery spanning four decades. “Peter Max: A Tribute to America” opens Friday, July 3 and runs through Sunday, July 5, 2015.

Victoria Montesinos: Passion of the Flower
Ocean Galleries welcomes Victoria Montesinos to Stone Harbor for her first exclusive art exhibition. “Victoria Montesinos: Passion of the Flower” opens Friday, July 31 and runs through Sunday, August 2, 2015.

Montesinos creates a subtle topography for her floral universe. Most notable, she is able to achieve a nearly subliminal incandescence through a medieval method of applying gold leaf to the canvas before painting.
Alexandre Renoir: Modern Day Impressionism
Alexandre Renoir, the great grandson of the Master Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, returns to Ocean Galleries with his latest collection of artwork for Labor Day weekend. “Renoir: Modern Day Impressionism” opens on Friday, September 4 and runs through Sunday, September 6, 2015.
