What a Guy

ShopTalk

BY BRITTANY MATTIE SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY SEP 14, 2018

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 as a marine biologist. Dr. Guy Harvey has since continued his pursuit to unravel the mysteries of the sea by traveling the world to better understand the habits and habitats of the marine wildlife he paints. Today, Guy Harvey is widely recognized as the world’s finest marine wildlife artist who combines his artistic talents with his background as a marine biologist. And as an avid diver, angler and explorer too, he’s fiercely devoted to portraying the beauty of the deep blue—creating oceanic art for his apparel line of men, women and childrens clothing, hats/visors, bags, jewelry, tableware, phone and laptop cases, books, home furnishings, dog accessories, decals, games and toys, outdoor equipment, fish mounts stationary sets and other novelty gift items—all beaming with an unmatched authenticity and visual appeal for sea life lovers worldwide.

Now you can meet-and-greet the world-renowned artist, conservationist, scientist and entrepreneur at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores today or tomorrow. Dr. Harvey will be hanging with fans, signing merchandise and have a chat about the sea surely. A portion of all Guy Harvey merchandise sales will go towards benefitting the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (GHOF)—a not-for-profit organization that conducts scientific research and hosts educational programs aimed at conserving the marine environment, helping to ensure that future generations can enjoy and benefit from a naturally balanced ocean ecosystem.

There’ll be two chances for you to hang with the man of the hour—at the North Port store on September 14, 5pm-7pm and at Sarasota’s on September 15, 12pm-2pm. 

Dick's Sporting Goods, Cocoplum Village Shops, 18219 Tamiami Trl., North Port & Dick's Sporting Goods, University Town Center, 181 North Cattlemen Rd., Sarasota.
