Exhibits of Impressionist art have been hot tickets for museums lately, so the Phillips Collection can expect healthy crowds starting Saturday, when it opens "Impressionists on the Seine: A Celebration of Renoir's 'Luncheon of the Boating Party'."

The show revolves around the Renoir masterpiece, which is part of the Phillips Collection, and will put it in context with 60 paintings from around the world by Renoir and contemporaries Monet, Manet, Sisley, Pissarro, Morisot and Caillebotte.

Gallery hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, noon-7 p.m.; and Thursdays, 10 a.m.-8: 30 p.m. Admission to this exhibition, which includes entry to the permanent collection, is $8 Tuesday-Friday; $10 on weekends.
