As we enter our 4th year of holding regular changing exhibitions we have taken the opportunity to focus on showcasing local Brighton artists that have successfully sold pieces through us in the past. With over 50 pieces of work from 9 Brighton based artists a variety of styles are featured. The exhibition will run until the end of March 2009.
The pieces are all especially picked to complement the hotels contemporary and stylish appeal. The contrasting works are spread throughout the hotels recently modernised interior with each of the eight guest accommodation ensuite rooms featuring the work of a different artist carefully chosen to suit it's style.
“Exhibiting at the brightonwave hotel provides local artists from Brighton and East Sussex exposure away from the sterile gallery environment. For the hotel it brings a special finishing touch to the interior and helps to make it a great place for the style conscious to stay.”
In a continuation from her first exhibition Christie Riggs cropped pictures of dancers in Prague brings impact to the blue-grey lounge, with its period features and custom-made furniture. In the breakfast area Karren Urben's Brighton Babes series is featured, sharing the room with 4 original works from Neeta Pedersen.
The hotel's feature 4 poster bedroom displays sketches of local sports stars by Jan Irvine whilst Paula Fash's photographs of skateboarders continue the sporty theme in one of the other large bedrooms. The other feature room showcases Martin Rolt's acrylic paintings.
