Chasen Galleries Of Fine Art Named Best Gallery In Virginia, 2014, Highlight Hollywood EXCLUSIVE News

Each year, the American Art  Awards, with an intent to introduce the best American galleries to unknown  artists worldwide, selects their top 25 picks for remarkably proficient and  accomplished galleries. President of AAA, Thom Bierdz, a prolific artist, author  and actor known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young &  The Restless, explains Virginia’s selection, “Chasen Galleries Of Fine Art has  over thirty years experience showcasing the work of the world’s most  collectible contemporary fine artists, sculptors and glass artists. We love  the scope that they offer – from current paintings – to treasured relished  classical works. For instance, at the end of March, they will have an exhibition  of works by Picasso, Renoir and Miro. Alexander Renoir, the great-grandson of  Pierre Auguste Renoir, is represented by Chasens and will make two planned  appearances. We respect how Chasens keeps the bloodline, and paintline,  flowing — in all styles from landscape to abstract to  conceptual.
“Recently, Chasen offered  casual collectors and avid art connoisseurs a chance to shake hands with Peter  Max at his retrospective. 
“Owner Andrew Chasen strives to  be the elite trend-setting art source in Richmond and we at AAA applaud his  continual success — and are proud to name Chasen Galleries the Best  Gallery In Virginia, 2014.”

Alexandre Renoir,  great-grandson of French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919),  grandson of Claude Renoir (1901-1969), and son of Paul Renoir (1925-2005) will  make two special appearances at the renowned gallery on Saturday & Sunday,  March 29th and 30th , 2014. This is a rare opportunity to meet this  extraordinary artist and to view his magnificent artwork. His works currently  reside in quite important private collections throughout North America, Asia,  Europe and the United Arab Emirates.
Alexandre Renoir was born in  Cagnes Sur Mer in the south of France. When he was 4, the family moved to  Canada, but even after leaving France, as the great-grand son of the great  French Impressionist artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alexandre grew-up surrounded  in The Art and Artists.
His famous family includes film  director Jean Renoir, actor Pierre Renoir, director of photography Claude Renoir  Jr., and Claude’s daughter actress Sophie Renoir.
Artistic from a young age,  Alexandre went to various arts-oriented schools including the Virginia Park  School for the artistically gifted and the Victoria School for the Arts and  Performance where he graduated in 1993. In addition to his formal education he  also attended classes at the Alberta Museum on Aboriginal Arts and Crafts  gaining further experience in jewelry making, sculpture, pottery, woodworking,  stone carving, printmaking, and painting.
Although he was immersed in the  arts and culture of his environment, Alexandre remained primarily an onlooker  until his drawing abilities were tapped by his brother. From the first sheet,  Alexandre could naturally draw in various styles; his charcoal drawings are  created with a sense of ease and grace that is reminiscent of the beauty and  charm of the impressionism period. Alexandre’s work currently resides in private  collections in numerous cities throughout North America, Asia, and Europe. His  work was also featured in the Tennessee State Museum for the exhibition “Strokes  of Genius”.
Alexandre has re-imagined and  most certainly re-inspired one of the world’s most famous pieces of art: that of  his great-grandfather’s “The Boating Party”, housed in the prestigious Phillips  Collection
Chasen Galleries of Fine Art /  3554 West Cary Street / Richmond, Virginia / 23221 / 804-204-1048 has awarded  winning artists in 2013 from USA, Canada, Latvia, Macedonia,  Switzerland,  India, China, Thailand, Japan, Singapore, Norway, Belgium,  Australia,  Slovakia, Italy, England, Romania and   Mexico.
