Peter Max – Summer of Love 50th Anniversary
Jul 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The iconic Peter Max, “America’s Painter Laureate,” returns to Ocean Galleries over the Fourth of July weekend with a collection of his recent works and most-revered imagery spanning five decades. Meet Peter Max at gallery receptions from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Saturday, July 1 and Sunday, July 2, 2017. This year’s exhibition marks the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love and will include many of Max’s vibrant, cosmic images that captured the spirit of the ‘60s youth movement and were cited by art critics as “the visual counterpart to the music of the Beatles.” A pop culture icon, Peter’s transcendent imagery, bold colors, and uplifting themes have touched almost every aspect of American culture and inspired generations. Throughout his incredible 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 in celebration of the Summer of Love, this year’s exhibition will include numerous paintings created specifically for the Stone Harbor show.  The “Peter Max – Summer of Love 50th Anniversary” exhibit will be at Ocean Galleries from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM Friday, June 30 to Wednesday, July 5, 2017.
