Ocean Galleries presents Mackenzie Thorpe – 30 Years of Love
For the weekend of the summer solstice, Ocean Galleries is delighted to welcome Mackenzie Thorpe for his first ever exhibition in New Jersey. The “Mackenzie Thorpe - 30 Years of Love” art exhibit, which includes an outstanding collection of pastels, sculptures, and limited-edition prints, will be in Stone Harbor throughout the weekend of June 21-23, 2019. Mackenzie Thorpe will appear at gallery receptions from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22, and from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 23.
Thorpe 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. 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.
In honor of Thorpe’s passion for animals, many of which he includes in his paintings, Ocean Galleries will be raising money for the Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center throughout the event. For more info, visit OceanGalleries.com/CMCAnimalShelter
