With Ringo Starr's tour with his All Starr Band set to begin this week with dates in Niagara Falls, I thought there was no time better than now to share this timely item...
GALLERIES ON THE ART TOUR INCLUDE: LISS GALLERY IN TORONTO I BREWSTER IN PHILADELPHIA POP INTERNATIONAL GALLERIES IN NEW YORK CITY WITH EXHIBITS AT ADDITIONAL GALLERIES AND THE HARD ROCK CAFÉ IN SELECT CITIES TO BE ANNOUNCED
Ringo began composing art on his computer in the late 90’s while on tour. “I love modern media, it is the way I do my art,” Starr said. “This year has been great. I designed something for Knot Violence: Imagine World Peace, and to support another great charity, WaterAid, I did a design for Timberland boots, and opened up this year’s Chelsea Garden show. And now we are doing Peace signs and as always, all my proceeds go to support the Lotus Foundation, the charity Barbara and I set up.”
Ringo also did an original design for the Hard Rock Signature Series T Shirt, which benefitted both the Lotus Foundation and Make A Wish. The Hard Rock have been very supportive and will feature select images of his work in their café’s during the tour, including the new series of Peace Signs, all depicted in his bright and colorful palette. The Peace signs are a fitting image for Ringo, who will celebrate his birthday with the now traditional moment of “Peace & Love”. This July 7 will see Starr with a crowd outside the Hard Rock in Nashville, Tennessee, encouraging everyone everywhere to join by saying, thinking or doing Peace & Love at Noon, your time. As Ringo said, all of his proceeds will go to benefit the Lotus US Foundation Charity. The objectives of the Foundation are to fund, support, participate in and promote charitable projects aimed at advancing social welfare in diverse areas including, but not limited to: substance abuse, cerebral palsy, brain tumors, cancer, battered women and their children, the homeless and animals in need.

Neal Glaser of ArtCelebs first became aware of Ringo’s artwork in 1995 when he saw the Discover card which featured one of Ringo’s paintings. He was impressed by the “Abstract Face” which he found original and fun, and they have been in collaboration since. Celebrity Art is a company devoted to presenting the finest artwork available by the most "celebrated artists" of our time. A truly eclectic collection of fine art, Celebrity Art is known as a publishing, exhibiting and auction gallery. Celebrity Art is a company that is exciting and unique and recently CNN, Reuters, The New York Daily News, Investors Business Daily and Good Morning New York have all interviewed Mr. Glaser about his company.
