Registration: Mackenzie Thorpe – 30 Years of Love
Friday, June 21 through Sunday, June 23
He has achieved global success in galleries throughout the UK, America, Japan, and Australia, counting such notable collectors as J. K. Rowling, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and Tom Hardy, among his fans. For the weekend of the summer solstice, Ocean Galleries is delighted to welcome Mackenzie Thorpe for his first ever exhibition in New Jersey. His artistic journey has taken him from the shipyards of Middlesbrough to internationally acclaim as one of today’s most collected and sought-after artists. Rooted in authenticity, Mackenzie’s artwork is packed with emotional expression and speaks of hope and love, as well as struggle and challenge. The need and compulsion to draw was obvious from an early age and remains with Mackenzie today. His works express an entire range of human emotion, from the special bond of love and friendship, to the importance of self-reflection and individual triumphs. Each or his artwork pieces are a tribute to the creativity within us all, as well as a vivid expression of hope and the human spirit. The “Mackenzie Thorpe – 30 Years of Love” art exhibit includes an outstanding collection of pastels, sculptures, and limited-edition prints.
Artist receptions take place from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22, and from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 23.
