Beer and art... What could be better? Local artist Aaron Hall brings his latest show to King Harbor Brewing Co. Sept. 7. The show features acrylic paintings capturing scenes from Redondo Beach to Los Angeles harbors.
“It's the Southern California lifestyle that I grew up in and was matured into... it's just the atmosphere and the environment of this area,” Hall said.
Hall was born in Texas, but his family moved to Palos Verdes when he was a toddler. While growing up on the hill, he spent a lot of time on the water becoming an avid surfer, sailor and fisherman.
The Harbor Art Show is Hall's second at the King Harbor Brewing Co. Waterfront Tasting Room on the International Boardwalk. The first show in March was successful enough that the owners brought Hall back for two shows, including another that opens on Oct. 5.
“There will be different themes every month,” Hall said. “Hopefully it will be an ongoing thing.”
After graduating from Palos Verdes High School in 1986, Hall attended the Otis Parsons School of Design and graduated in 1990. He owned a screenprint company, which he eventually was forced to shut down due to a bad economy. He sold his equipment to his employees and became a silent partner, while creating artwork for their new company.
Hall, who currently lives on a boat in San Pedro, moved into his current studio, Studio 2315, which is located on Artesia Blvd. in Redondo Beach, in 2008. He shares the studio space with Signet Marine, a boating electronics company, owned by this father.
The King Harbor Brewing Co. is located at 132 International Boardwalk. The reception for the Harbor Art Show takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 7. For more information, visit studio2315.com, or kingharborbrewing.com.
