Peter Max’s “The Colors of Resorts” installed at Resorts Atlantic City, March 8

05_resortsOn Tuesday, March 8, Josh and Kim Miller, owners of Ocean Galleries – along with long time gallery employee Bob Smith – installed Peter Max’s original painting titled, “The Colors of Resorts” in the entrance of the Camelot Restaurant. Camelot is located on the Dining Level of Resorts Atlantic City.

“The Colors of Resorts” highlights the signature art deco flair of Resorts Casino in a style that is quintessential Peter Max. He brings the viewer right into the excitement of the casino.

The 48″ x 60″ original acrylic on canvas was commissioned by Resorts Atlantic City through Ocean Galleries of Avalon and Stone Harbor, New Jersey. Ocean Galleries used their expertise in framing to finish the canvas with a gorgeous combination of gold frames that perfectly compliment Max’s bold brush strokes of strong color and his vibrant style.
