St James Hotel in Nottingham has announced the opening of its first in-house art gallery.
The 87-bedroom independent hotel, featured in the September issue of Boutique Hotelier magazine, has now opened The Left Gallery, a dedicated space which will showcase new and established talent through a series of exhibitions.
Nat Coalson, an American photographic artist, is the first to have his work on display and will launch the new space on November 13th with a look at his newest work entitled ‘Anima Astratto: Journey into Perception’.
The gallery is yet further commitment from the St James to support and encourage artists, artisans, crafts and trades from the surrounding area.
Coalson said: “I’m thrilled and honoured to have been selected for the first art exhibition in the Left Gallery. I love working with hotels and the St James is among the best. It’s a beautiful property that oozes style and charm—a perfect setting for presenting my boldest abstract works.”
Hotel director, Harjeet Johal said of the new project, which will run until January 4th: “Art is an integral part of The St James identity. We are passionate about the promotion, discovery and nurturing of artists. The Left Gallery is our way to create a space in which artists can gain exposure and reach a wider audience. It demonstrates our commitment to the creative essence of Nottingham and the Midlands.”
