3rd Annual Sustainable Business Travel Summit
SHERATON”S Skyline at Heathrow is no longer just a hotel, it now doubles as an Art Gallery. Working in partnership with First Sight Fine Art, a contemporary gallery based in Bath, work from 20 artists and sculptors is on show around the property. The gallery is open to both hotel guests and non-residents interested in art and is free entry. Much more than just a lobby show, all the public areas in the hotel have been turned into a major art gallery, with extensive selections of work. Mike Porter, managing director, First Sight, said "We are delighted to have the opportunity of using a space like the Skyline to showcase the work of our artists. It is a great venue and as an airport hotel with lots of guests coming through, the paintings and sculptures will be seen by many people. In addition, as the spaces are so big, over the next two years the Skyline gallery will showcase some spectacular examples of work that simply do not fit into a conventional art gallery". If a hotel guest falls in love with a piece of art on show, and would like to see it in their home, then the work is available to buy, starting from ”300 going up to ”12,000 for the serious investors and collectors. Cruise ships have traditionally been a place to buy a painting. Maybe airport hotels are the next market.
