A collection of fine art photography by internationally acclaimed artist and musician Julian Lennon will be on display and for sale during the opening celebration of The Heritage – A Legacy Show Home, located in the gated community Heritage Dunes in scenic beach of Seagrove, Florida.
The Lennon Photography Opening Night will take place on September 16, 2022, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The event will also celebrate Lennon’s new studio album, Judewhich is scheduled for release on September 9, 2022.
“I am delighted to partner with The Heritage with an exhibition of my photographs to celebrate the debut of Legacy Show Home,” said Lennon. “It is a privilege to share the special moments, people and places that have moved me on my travels around the world. I hope these images I have captured remind us of the endless beauty that surrounds us. .”
Unsurprisingly, Lennon’s photographs feature clouds, views of nature, cityscapes, images of enigmatic roads, and portraits of friends from the worlds of music, fashion, and entertainment. There are a few color photos, although most are black and white.
Empathy, notes Julian, is the bond that unites the planet. He proposes: “We are all in the same boat, and I hope that one day the world will realize that… Photography is a means of sharing, learning, appreciating and discovering other cultures, which which in turn allows us to sympathize with the lives of others…”
The paid evening will allow guests to explore The Heritage, sample food and drink, browse Lennon’s work and mingle with special celebrities in attendance, including the celebrity chef, restaurateur, TV personality and author Emeril Lagassé, joined by his son, Chief EJ Lagassé, and his wife Alden Lagassé. EJ Lagassé has taken his father’s place as an integral part of the Emeril brand: he is the executive chef of Emeril’s in New Orleans. The father-son duo’s passion for gastronomy will be highlighted during the opening festivities with dishes prepared for the event. The charity auction will also feature one-of-a-kind works by pop artist Ashley Longshore and other original works of art, luxury items and travel experiences.
