“En Plein Air,” Les Beaux Arts Gallery

“En Plein Air” Opens the Fall Season at Les Beaux Arts Les Beaux Arts Gallery is celebrating the opening of their fall season with “En Plein Air,” an exhibition of paintings by Jean-Pierre Jacquet, a French artist and resident of Greenwich. The exhibition is a collection of airy and luminous landscapes, many of which are recognizable locations in this area. En Plein Air opens at Les Beaux Arts Gallery in Greenwich, on Sunday, September 7 - Thursday, October 16, 2014. There are many facets to Jacquet's creative life including being a renowned producer of animation movies in his native France, and the U.S.A. After graduating from Harvard Law School, he became the president of AFCA, the Association Francaise du Cinema and earned numerous awards, among them best production for his movie "Buddy." He was nominated for an Emmy Award for his production of "Doug" and he realized many TV series including "Billy The Cat," "Pink Palace" and "Waldo." Jacquet started painting in 2003. "It was a natural transition and extension of my own creative work for the cinema," he explains. He was inspired by Edward Hopper and the Ash Can School. His early work was more of the narrative genre. Jacquet evolved to plein air painting where he closely follows nature and freely alters what he observes, without changing the spatial organization of the composition. Landscapes of parks, farms and nature reserves attest to his keen eye and sense of color.  In his street views he suggests that the scene continues beyond the frame. This can be observed in fragmentary glimpses of Greenwich Avenue, Manhattan’s Bleecker St. and other scenes from Port Chester and Norwalk which will be included in the exhibition. Jacquet has exhibited in galleries in Paris and New York. In Greenwich, his paintings have been shown at the Bendheim Gallery. En Plein Air will be exhibited at Les Beaux Arts Gallery, from September 7 - October 16. Les Beaux Arts, in the Round Hill Community Church, is located at 395 Round Hill Road, in Greenwich. Gallery hours are: Sunday, 11:00 A.M. to Noon; Monday - Friday, 9:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M.; and closed on Saturday. For more information, visit roundhillcommunitychurch.org or call (203) 869-1091.

We will have plenty of time for questions.” Lesley Schless is a partner in the Trusts and Estates group at Shipman & Goodwin LLP, resident in the Greenwich office.
