Renoir: Modern Day Impressionism – Sept 4-7

Special Update: Artwork from the “Alexandre Renoir: Modern Day Impressionism” exhibit will remain on display in Stone Harbor through Sunday, September 27.

Alexandre Renoir, the great grandson of the Master Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, returns to Ocean Galleries with his latest collection of artwork for Labor Day weekend.

“Renoir: Modern Day Impressionism” opens on Friday, September 4 and runs through Monday, September 7, 2015. Guests can meet Alexandre Renoir and watch him paint during receptions:

Saturday, September 5, 2015    7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Sunday, September 6, 2015      7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Inspired by his famous great-grandfather, Alexandre has created his own unique style of painting using impressionistic techniques. One of the most popular art forms, Impressionism dates back to the 1800s. Characterized by relatively small and thin brush strokes, Impressionism accurately depicts detail, light, and movement in a bright and vibrant manner aimed at capturing the momentary, sensory effect of a scene.

Alexandre Renoir brings with him several new paintings created specifically for the Ocean Galleries exhibition, including Sunrise Haystack (pictured). During the three-day exhibition at Ocean Galleries, Alexandre Renoir will be displaying his artistic talent as he paints during the receptions.

Gallery hours for the exhibit are 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; and 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM on Monday.
