Seymour began painting more than 20 years ago as part of a healing process for personal challenges experienced at that time. Since then, Ms. Seymour has emerged as an established and accomplished painter, creating an intimate world of delicate watercolors, colorful vibrant oil paintings, pastels, and bronze sculptures. She has exhibited in many North American galleries, has accepted select private commissions, and continues to reach new artistic levels by constantly developing her technique, style, and subject matter.

The “Jane Seymour: Up Close and Personal” exhibition will feature a collection of artwork by the multi-talented artist. The show opens to the public at Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue, Stone Harbor, NJ) on Friday, May 15, 2015 and runs through Monday, May 25, 2015. There will be opportunities to meet Ms. Seymour at special receptions from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, May 22 and Saturday, May 23, and 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, May 24. Guests who acquire Ms. Seymour’s art during preview week will have a unique opportunity to meet her for an intimate exchange and personalization of artwork.

In addition to an extraordinary collection of artwork and custom-framing, Ocean Galleries also offers a variety of hand-made crafts from local, regional, and national artists in America, such as glass, pottery, jewelry, and furniture. All summer exhibitions take place at the Stone Harbor location of Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue), which is open from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM daily during the summer season.
