Attention Art Aficionados: Mark Your Calendars for a Meet and Greet with This Notable Artist

This Saturday evening, Martin Lawrence Galleries (MLG) is delighted to welcome back René Lalonde and present new dynamic works. The pieces on display will include large abstracts and Lalonde's highly original "Dream Houses." See them for yourselves and meet the artist at this free event at MLG!

Martin Lawrence Galleries discovered the glory of Rene Lalonde at the New York Art Expo nearly 20 years ago and has been exclusively showcasing his work ever since. Blending the traditions of surrealism, cubism, and Fauvism, Lalonde grabs viewers with both the emotional force of vivid and unusual color and the simplicity of flattened out planes.

Lalonde's work inspires joy and elicits smiles. Lalonde is an artist who works with the vibrancy and excitement of color, yet somehow projects a sense of calm and serenity in his work. His use of house imagery intentionally conjures up coziness, warmth and the security we are all searching for in life.

"The primary goal for me is to create images with one idea in mind - To bring a sense of pleasure to the viewer, whether it is peace or joy or stillness. Doing that in stressful times, creating places where people can go and hide from a crazy world is the most important thing I can accomplish as an artist.”
Come join Martin Lawrence Galleries for an exceptional exhibition by contemporary artist René Lalonde showcasing fascinating new original works on canvas. Meet this "freeform art rebel" of Cubism and Surrealism at this exciting free event on Saturday!
