The Renoir exhibition opens at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre today and service users of the Ron Short Centre are also having pieces of their work showcased. It isn’t every day you get a showcase of this size on your doorstep. As a result, the management at the Ron Short Centre wanted to mark the occasion with a short 20 minute documentary film highlighting the benefits of art on the wider community.

It comes as no surprise that art played a massive role for members of our community during our local lockdown around April/May this year, and continues to do so. Art served as a platform and driver to motivate many islanders, and this was clearly evident from those who were kind enough to share their views with us on camera. Many spoke of the joy that came about during the process of creating their pieces of artwork and we hope it motivates others to pick up a paintbrush or a pencil or whatever takes their fancy in the coming months.

The main draw of the exhibition is an original Renoir artwork, which the French artist painted whilst in the Bailiwick, which will be on display until the 6th October. The satellite exhibition is where you can sample some of the work from artists at the Ron Short Centre.
