Registration: Peter Max – Woodstock 50th Anniversary
Friday, July 5 through Sunday, July 7
In what has become a Stone Harbor Fourth of July tradition, Ocean Galleries will host an exhibit with artwork by the iconic Peter Max, “America’s Painter Laureate,” over the holiday weekend. This year’s exhibition marks the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock and will include many of Peter’s psychedelic and vibrant, cosmic images that captured the true spirit of the 60s and were recognized by art critics as “the visual counterpart to the music of the Beatles.” Peter’s transcendent imagery, bold colors, and uplifting themes have touched almost every aspect of American culture and inspired generations. Throughout his impressive artistic career, Peter Max has been the official artist for many national and international events, has painted presidents, world leaders and rock stars, and has created artwork on everything from a Boeing 777 to a 600-foot Woodstock stage. Peter has been the official artist of the GRAMMYs six times, and his recent works feature celebrity portraits of legendary musicians Tom Petty, Lionel Ritchie, Bono, and Bruce Springsteen, each of whom have been honored as The GRAMMYs MusiCares person of the year. In addition to a collection of his famous cosmic images, this year’s exhibition will include numerous paintings created specifically for the Stone Harbor exhibit and will include a collection of his recent works and most-revered imagery spanning five decades.
The Peter Max “Woodstock 50th Anniversary” exhibit will be at Ocean Galleries over the Fourth of July weekend, with special curatorial receptions taking place from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, July 5 and Saturday, July 6, and from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, July 7.
