Guy Harvey's artwork will appear at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in March.

Artist, researcher and biologist Guy Harvey will show off his iconic artwork beginning March 10, following the grand opening of the freshly renovated interpretive center at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm Beach.

The Harvey exhibit will include both originals and prints, and a percentage of any art purchases will benefit the Friends of MacArthur Beach State Park’s Natural Science Education Fund.

“We are once again thrilled to have the very recognized and sought-after artist, Dr. Guy Harvey, exhibiting his paintings and prints in the nature center's newly designed exhibit hall and theater,” Friends board member Janet Heaton said. “The community is always eager to enjoy and purchase his new images.”

Park visitors can view the colorful, tropical works of art through May 1.

Harvey, the newest member of the International Game Fish Association Fishing Hall of Fame, is celebrating a storied, 25-year career as a world-renowned artist, photographer, diver and scientist whose focus always has been beneath the waves. From his studio in the Cayman Islands, Harvey paints ocean scenes that capture the beauty of life under the sea on canvas.

A vocal proponent of catch-and-release fishing, Harvey donates artwork, time and funds for an array of institutions and conservation groups, including the Guy Harvey Research Institute established at Nova Southeastern University in 1999. In 2008, he created the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, which supports marine-conservation, research and education efforts.

In 2010, Harvey was presented the highest award of honor of a non-Panamanian, for his work to preserve and publicize Panama’s marine resources. The same year, he received the Award of Excellence from the Jamaica Committee for the Protection of Marine Environment and Philanthropy.

Exhibit hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, free with park admission. For information, call (561) 776-7449 or visit
