GREENWICH, Conn. -- The JHouse in Greenwich is set to open a new exhibit on Monday featuring three Brooklyn painters.
The JHouse is Greenwich's "premier high-tech boutique hotel" and will launch the first "art hotel" concept in the tri-state area with the Monday opening of "Per(pro)spective," according to a press release. The show is the first in the Art-otel Project curated by Douglas Lederman.
"The inaugural show of The JHouse’s Art-otel Project highlights the skill, dedication and hands-on approach of three young artists, Noah Landfield, Brian Meola and Karen Seapker, each with a unique vision, methodology and style of artistic presentation," representatives said in the release. "It will focus on their individuality, innate creativity and ability to communicate with a contemporary audience."
The exhibited works will be available for sale with proceeds going directly to the artists, according to the release.
"With a provocative mix of abstract and representational elements and references ranging from Impressionism and Expressionism to Surrealism, Cubism, Color Field and Pop Art, the selected works are all rooted in art history, yet vibrantly connected to the moment," representatives said in the release. "In fact, the title of the show, 'Per(pro)spective,' is derived from two of the central qualities of successful works of contemporary art: having an individual point of view (perspective) and being forward looking (prospective)."
The projects do not have to follow trends or present only the work of artists who have proven marketability, according to the release.
“The days when a hotel is merely a place to sleep and eat have long passed,” said The JHouse General Manager Jonathan Wise, in the release. “Today’s hotels can and should serve their communities in greater, more meaningful ways. Our owners have gone to great lengths to develop not only a fantastic haven for travelers, but also a truly unique space which lends itself to being a showplace for contemporary art, music and cuisine.”
