FLAGLER BEACH, FL – Ocean Art Gallery will present the oil paintings of Richard Hausen on Friday, June 7th at its oceanfront gallery. Hausen’s maritime art illustrates his bold personal style, with bright colors and strong brush strokes, often on rough textured materials which add a rustic feel to his paintings. His portrait paintings capture the special essence of those who sit for him.
Hausen is known throughout Flagler County where he is a member of the Flagler County Art League. His works have won numerous awards in juried competitions.
The art opening reception will be held in conjunction with Flagler Beach’s “First Friday Music in the Park” celebration, which occurs a block away from Ocean Art Gallery, located at 200 S. Oceanshore Blvd (A1A), across from the Flagler Pier. The public is invited to the reception from 5:30 to 8:30 PM. Refreshments will be served.
Hausen is one of four resident artists at Ocean Art Gallery, where the work of Bob Carlsen (photography), Krystyna Madejczyk (sculpture and photography) and Rob Carlton (stained glass) also will be on display.
