Wednesday, February 24th will be the first art reception held at Aloft Hotel, Lexington, MA, a Starwood Hotel. The hotel, in combination with Sunne Savage Gallery, will begin hosting reception on the first Wednesday of each three month exhibition. The receptions are open to the local community, exhibiting artists, and clients of the hotel. In true Aloft fashion, the evening will be entirely themed towards the current exhibition including music selected by the artist and signature cocktails for the event.
For the premiere exhibition of 2010, Aloft will be exhibiting selections from Kayo Burmon’s Frescoes Series. Burmon writes, “From the beginning of time, man has felt compelled to make marks. Eventually these marks became standardized and evolved into symbols or letters that consistently mean the same thing… I find enormous beauty in the line and patterns and colors of all marks made by every culture… Because I am particularly drawn to Italy… it was logical to investigate marks there. I started to look at centuries old frescoes, but quickly found myself drawn to the modern day wall paintings in the form of Graffiti. I became obsessed with composing images and capturing them on camera.” Aloft will be exhibiting four of Burmon’s Frescoes from February 22nd thru May 20th, 2010.
Sunne Savage Gallery, Winchester, MA, assists Aloft Hotel with their community art exhibitions. The Gallery and Hotel have been working together since the hotel’s opening in 2008. The Sunne Savage Gallery supplies Aloft Hotel with two dimensional arts from local artists to exhibit in the Hotel’s lobby. Working with Aloft Hotel in turn opened the doors for the Sunne Savage Gallery to complete four sculpture commissions for the W Hotel Boston, another Starwood Hotel. The Sunne Savage Gallery, LLC, is a woman-owned, generational business specializing in fine art since 1975. The Gallery offers both private and corporate art services including art advisory, installation, framing, appraisal, conservation and transportation.
