20 Jul Art and hospitality go hand in hand at Aqua Gallery
Following the great popularity of the first art exhibition to be organised by Aqua Vista Hotels at the Aqua Gallery of the Art Hotel Santorini in May, the group is thrilled to have presented the exciting opening of the second series of art works, entitled ‘Art Travels’, on Saturday 15 July. The event introduced to the large number of attendees a new collection of works, by Greek artists, which will be on display until 22 August.
Guests from the local community, Aqua Vista Hotels executives, island visitors and art lovers were present to celebrate the opening of the fascinating exhibition that has been organised by the Aqua Gallery in cooperation with the EPsilon Art Gallery, and which is an initiative of the #Rest@rt Contemporary Art Platform by Kelly Athanasiadou. Visitors to the Art Hotel will be able to enjoy at close hand works, created especially for this particular showing, by 26 contemporary Greek artists, under the curation of the artist and owner of EPsilon Art Gallery, Efi Panteleon.
Aqua Vista Hotels is delighted to be part of the project, which will offer residents of the Art Hotel and visitors to Santorini the chance to enjoy art works of various styles, which have been inspired by Greece and the Aegean Sea. The enthusiastic response of the guests at the official opening is a clear sign that the ‘Art Travels’ project is destined to be a great success.
Talking about the event and the exhibition itself, Mrs Sofia Matzourani, Business Development Manager of Aqua Vista hotels stated, “We were delighted to have the opportunity to provide such a wonderful space for artistic expression and I am sure that this second exhibition will be also extremely popular, gauging by the positive reactions of those present tonight. Both guests at the hotel and visitors will have the opportunity to experience hospitality at its best by embarking on a journey through the works themselves that highlight the creativity of the artists, as well as the Greek philosophy on ‘philoxenia’!”
