The Glasshouse has joined forces with Creative Arts Gallery – a luxury online portal offering a wide collection of artwork – and launched the new area within the mezzanine level above the hotel’s reception.
Creative Arts Gallery will showcase a selection of work including pieces by Jolomo award-winning artist Jack Frame, Lynne Harkes, Derek McGuire and Rowena Comrie, with the collection being updated on a regular basis. All works of art displayed are available to purchase online at www.creativeartsgallery.com.
Marking its ten year anniversary since opening, The Glasshouse has relaunched under Autograph Collection by Marriott following a refurbishment, which is a joint venture for the hotel between AIMCO and Westmont Hospitality Group.
Alison Mathewson, General Manager of The Glasshouse, said: “With the launch of our new look hotel influenced by the arts, it was ideal to work with Creative Arts Gallery and create the exhibition space.
“The gallery is a unique addition to the hotel, and to see some of Scotland’s best work is a real pleasure and something we hope will bring much enjoyment to our guests.”
Creative Arts Gallery was set up by Edinburgh based, husband and wife team Sam and Jo Taylor, providing access to a range of art works by selected artists handpicked by Jo. Currently the online gallery features more 160 works by over 30 artists including Frank To, Ewan Stirrat, Moy Mackay and skilled artists such as Sarah Cave and Jessica Irena Smith.
Jo Taylor, founder of Creative Arts Gallery, said: “Following the refurbishment of The Glasshouse, the mezzanine level lends itself perfectly as a working gallery space. Framed by the architecture of the original facade of the Lady Glenorchy Church, it has the perfect blend of the dramatic and natural light to really bring the work we will have on display to life.”
Marking its ten year anniversary since opening, The Glasshouse revealed its fresh artistic interiors in July, which included the transformation of all its bedrooms and public spaces, including The Snug lounge and bar, The Observatory and roof top garden, all linked with a subtle arts and theatrical theme, following a refurbishment under Autograph Collection by Marriott.
