I am pleased to announce a new exhibition of paintings by renowned sporting artist Chet Reneson that will run from October 15 – December 15, 2009. The exhibition features a variety of subjects near and dear to Reneson, including five sporting scenes and four Bahamian paintings. I am particularly thrilled to present a snowy-blowy duck hunting scene that perfectly captures the bluster of a winter hunt, as well as a grouse shooting work and an intense image of two Bahamian fishermen hauling a great white shark into their boat.


            Reneson’s impeccable sporting art credentials attest to his talent and finely honed sportsman’s eye. After growing up fishing and hunting on a rural farm in Colchester, Connecticut, he studied art at the University of Hartford. His formal training and vast outdoor experience combine to garner him a place as one of the leading sporting artists. Reneson’s sporting art career began with the sale of a painting at the Crossroads of Sport, Inc. in New York in 1965, and since then he has been named Artist of the Year multiple times by Ducks Unlimited and the Atlantic Salmon Federation, among other honors. Additionally, he is a past member of the Connecticut Watercolor Association and the Old Lyme Art Association.


            Today, Chet Reneson lives in Old Lyme, Connecticut with his wife Penny. In addition to his painting and angling hobbies, he is an avid duck hunter and decoy carver. I am pleased to offer such a fine selection of watercolors for view and purchase. The works truly reflect the passions of a lifetime sportsman and artist.
