Water is Key to Art Reception June 9


The next featured artist at the Maxine Orange Studio Gallery, 21A Eglin Pkwy NE Fort Walton Beach, is Johnny Ocean Photography. A reception will celebrate this event on Friday, June 9.

John Oja is a lifelong waterman with a passion for combining his love of art and the element of water to create beautiful, unique and ethereal images. His art captures elegance through a whimsical and dreamlike perspective that is sure to be a conversational piece in any setting. These images are meant to mesmerize us with magic, wonder, emotion, and fairytale, which is exactly how the water mesmerizes John.
John’s latest collection, which will be featured in this show, was specifically captured in collaboration with a selection of Emerald Coast creatives as his subjects, including artists Harley Van Hyning, Bradley Copeland, Maxine Orange, photographer Sean Murphy, violinist Jessica Heit and dancers Kate Beliaeva and Rico Dias Garcia. Seeing little pieces of what each unique artist does through John’s lens translates in a very unique and magical way under the water and has fueled his passion forward. Join us to celebrate this Emerald Coast artist at the opening reception on June 9th, at Maxine Orange Studio Gallery, 21A Eglin Pkwy NE FWB 32548. @johnnyoceanphotography @maxineorange
