Registration: Stephen Harlan – Water’s Edge
Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21
Making his first appearance at Ocean Galleries, Stephen Harlan will be in Stone Harbor the weekend of July 19-21. In a world moving quickly into the future, Stephen Harlan has established his own unique style of digital artwork. Each inspired work in his collection is “visioned” and shaped in Stephen’s mind, then meticulously rendered with an eye to “color and contrast” to create a magical mood – suspended in time…in space… and in the imagination. Born in rural Minnesota, Harlan relocated with his family to Florida when he was in grade school, which inspired his love of the water having spent many days sailing into the sunset on his catamaran. Investigating the uniqueness of harbors and sunsets became a passion and his nautical focus continues to grow deeper every day, with the never-ending inspiration that comes from carefully observing the sea and the water in all of their contrasts. After relocating to California with his wife, his artistic style expanded, with images of the southwest and several other areas of inspiration becoming a part of his portfolio. Stephen’s portfolio of abstract images also grew as increased interest and requests from California and West Coast collectors surfaced. Today, the Harlan family resides in North Carolina, where the Atlantic Ocean and Intercoastal Waterway serve as a constant source of stimulation for future work.
The “Stephen Harlan – Water’s Edge” exhibit will be at Ocean Galleries July 19-21. Join us for receptions with Stephen Harlan taking place from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, July 19 and Saturday, July 20, and from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, July 21.
