Miami International Fine Arts Gallery Hosts Guy Harvey’s Underwater World Marine Art Exhibition in September
World-renowned artist kicks-off month-long exhibit with an event open to the public
A portion of the proceeds from sales of artwork benefit ocean conservation
Strikingly beautiful, visually stunning scenes from marine expeditions around the world by renowned artist, conservationist, scientist and entrepreneur Dr. Guy Harvey are featured in a new exhibition on display at the Miami International Fine Arts (MIFA) Gallery in September.
Dr. Harvey is scheduled to attend the exhibition’s opening reception on Friday, September 3 from 7 to 10 p.m. Much of the original artwork on display is from Guy Harvey’s Underwater World, Dr. Harvey’s fifth book and most recently released memoir. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The reception is free and open to the public and no reservation is required. For additional details, visit mifagallery.com or contact [email protected].
“I am delighted that the MIFA gallery is hosting my first one-man show in several years here in South Florida,” said Dr. Harvey. “I was fortunate during the pandemic to spend the time writing this book, for which I specifically painted several pieces of original art in all sizes, including large 8’-10’ canvases and smaller ink drawings, watercolor paintings and mixed media. There is something for everyone in this exhibit.”
All 60 original art pieces on display, inspired by Dr. Harvey’s expeditions in the Caribbean, the Americas and Australia, depict dramatic predator-prey interactions with large ocean fish including marlin, sharks and tunas. All artwork is available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds from sales benefiting ocean conservation research, education and conservation projects in Florida through the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.
The MIFA gallery is located at 5900 NW 74th Ave. in Miami, and the Guy Harvey exhibition is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. from September 3 through September 30 Special appointments outside of working hours can be made by contacting [email protected].
