Guy Harvey’s New Gallery And Retail Shop Opens On Las Olas Boulevard In Fort Lauderdale

The Guy Harvey brand has docked a new art gallery and retail shop on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. The unmistakable splash of Dr. Harvey’s iconic art, apparel, books and ocean-inspired accessories and gifts come to life in the gallery and shop at 816 Las Olas Boulevard.  “Our new location reflects a familiar marine-inspired Guy Harvey shopping experience,” said Dr. Harvey, world-renowned artist, conservationist, scientist and entrepreneur. “We are thrilled to move to a location with such high visibility in downtown Fort Lauderdale on one of South Florida’s most desirable streets. Las Olas Boulevard is popular not only with tourists, but with the surrounding residential and business community as well.”   A portion of proceeds from sales of all Guy Harvey apparel and merchandise at the shop and online benefit ocean research, education and conservation initiatives through the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (GHOF). The non-profit organization is dedicated to saving the seas, supporting groundbreaking research and helping foster the next generation of ocean conservationists. The GHOF recently launched a new K-12 marine science educational curriculum for students now being piloted throughout Florida and is also being expanded nationally and internationally.  Guy Harvey is a unique blend of artist, scientist, diver, angler, conservationist, explorer and entrepreneur, fiercely devoted to his family and his love of the sea. His childhood passion for the ocean and its living creatures not only inspired him to draw but fueled a burning interest that prompted a formal education in marine science. Having graduated with honors in Marine Biology from Aberdeen University in Scotland in 1977, Guy returned home to Jamaica to resume his education, earning his Ph.D. from the University of the West Indies in 1984. Though he gave up a budding career as a marine biologist for that of a highly acclaimed artist, Guy has continued his relentless pursuit to unravel the mysteries of the sea, traveling the world to better understand the habits and habitats of the marine wildlife he paints.
