Samir Sammoun – Master Impressionist

Ocean Galleries welcomes renowned Canadian-Lebanese Impressionist, Samir Sammoun, over Memorial Day weekend for his first ever exhibition in Stone Harbor. Samir began painting oils at the young age of 13, inspired by the beautiful landscapes of his native Joun, Lebanon, particularly his family’s 1,000-year-old olive plantation. His impressionistic art has been compared to some of the great Masters, most often, to Van Gogh, as well as Monet, Renoir, and Pissarro, while his colorful and masterful paintings have brought admiration from collectors in Canada, Lebanon, the U.S., and around the world. In addition to the olive, poppies, and landscape scenes inspired by his Lebanese roots, Samir finds inspiration in other places he visits and resides, from Quebec to the coasts of Sunny Isles, Florida. The new exhibit, “Master Impressionist,” features more than 70 original oil paintings including many seascapes, landscapes, and cityscapes, and numerous pieces created specifically for the Ocean Galleries exhibit, such as beach scenes and regional cityscapes from New York and Philadelphia. “Samir Sammoun – Master Impressionist” is open throughout Memorial Day weekend, with the artist making gallery appearances 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26.
In addition, Ocean Galleries is hosting an Exhibit Preview Party from 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM on Saturday, May 25 with two time Stanley Cup winner Bernie Parent and his wife, Gini, on hand helping to raise money for the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation. Sammoun has generously donated a 24” x 30” original oil painting, “Tuscany Vineyard,” which Ocean Galleries has custom framed, giving the painting a total retail value of over $15,000. Well known as being one of the greatest goaltenders of all time, Bernie Parent will be the guest auctioneer for the Live Auction of the donated painting, which is slated to being at 6:45 PM. There will be a 2:1 match for any funds raised, so the auction has potential to raise over $45,000!
