AAUW Crystal Lake Area (IL) Branch – Annual Spring Luncheon “THROUGH THE EYES OF PIERRE-AUGUSTE RENOIR” with Scott Shepherd

Meet the man and put yourself in his paintings!

Crystal Lake, IL – February 16, 2019 – American Association of University Women (AAUW) Crystal Lake Area (IL) Branch is hosting its Annual Spring Luncheon at 11am on Saturday, April 13 at the Crystal Lake Country Club. The fundraiser supports local educational scholarships, and other programs of the organization.

WHAT: The event features a raffle of multiple themed baskets and items, cash bar, luncheon entrée choice of potato crusted chicken or roasted vegetable crepes, and program with highly-acclaimed art and drama teacher Scott Shepherd portraying impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir. (

"Never serious, always on holiday", Renoir's 65-minute monologue is accompanied by vivid slides of his work, by demonstrations of his artistic concerns, and re-enactments with volunteers from the audience of some of his famous paintings including The Two Sisters, The Clam Diggers, and The Luncheon of the Boating Party.

Renoir expressed through his painting, his child-like delight with the visible world of everyday life. The most universally-beloved of the impressionists, Renoir's life was proof that nice people don't always finish last. The gentle Renoir was well-liked by his colleagues, a good family-man, and appreciated by both impressionist and conservative art lovers. Because of this lifestyle, Renoir was able to enjoy success that came earlier than that of any of his friends.
