Alexandre Renoir in Stone Harbor for Labor Day Weekend

Posted:
STONE HARBOR - This Labor Day weekend, the small seashore community of Stone Harbor plays host to the legacy of revered Master Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, when Ocean Galleries welcomes his great-grandson, Alexandre Renoir, for an extraordinary exhibition of his impressionistic paintings.
“Renoir: Modern Day Impressionism” will be on display Friday, September 4th through Monday, September 7th at Ocean Galleries on 9618 Third Avenue in Stone Harbor.  Alexandre Renoir will be at special receptions from 7p.m.  until 10 on Saturday, September 5th and Sunday, September 6th. Gallery hours during the exhibit are 10a.m.. until 10 Friday through Sunday, and 10am until 5 on Monday. The exhibition and all receptions are free, with all artwork available for acquisition.
In addition to viewing his incredible artwork, guests will have a chance to witness Alexandre Renoir’s extraordinary talents as he paints during the receptions.  The exhibition and the receptions are free and open to the public, with all artwork available for acquisition.
Artistically, Alexandre trained at various arts-oriented schools, including the Virginia Park School for the Artistically Gifted and the Victoria School for the Arts and Performance (Edmonton, Alberta).  In addition to his formal education, he also attended classes at the Alberta Museum on Aboriginal Arts and Crafts, garnering experience in sculpture, pottery, woodworking, stone carving, commercial art, photography, and painting.
Although his collection of artwork includes several still lifes, many of Alexandre’s paintings are land and seascapes like his great-grandfather’s works.
“I was fortunate to live in and travel to many beautiful places in my life – from where I grew up in the South of France, to where I currently reside in La Jolla, CA – so painting what I have seen and experienced is something that comes very naturally to me,” explains Renoir.
Alexandre’s impressive collection of artwork will include several new paintings created specifically for the Ocean Galleries exhibition.
