Aiming to highlight every facet of Greek culture, Aqua Vista Hotels has introduced its own integrated art space, which will feature Greek artists and their creations. Open on a 24-hour basis and in line with Aqua Vista Hotels’ philosophy of hospitality, the new “Aqua Gallery” is hosted in an specially designed space within the Art Hotel on the island of Santorini in the Cyclades.
Three group art exhibitions will be on display this season, with the first opening on Sunday, May 7 at 7 pm. Entitled “From Athens to Santorini: Greek artists’ trips”, the first exhibition takes place in collaboration with Eos art gallery and art historian and curator, Marina Kanakaki.
In June 2017, Aqua Gallery and EPsilon Art Gallery will co-organise a group art exhibition entitled “Art Travels…”, which will be curated by artist Evi Panteleon. The works of 23 Greek artists, most of which were created for the exhibition, will be presented to the public, highlighting the positive implications of art in our lives.
The third and final showing for this year will be a group exhibition with the title “Think of Me”, organised by Dimitris Lazarou and curated by Konstantinos Vafeiadis.
“We are constantly looking into ways of how to make a hotel stand out from the others, whether it is for its unique location or exclusive amenities and features,” said Sofia Matzourani, Business Development Manager of Aqua Vista Hotels. “It therefore seemed like a natural choice for us to choose the Art Hotel as the perfect venue to house our exciting new venture, Aqua Gallery,” she added.
The exhibitions take place within the framework of #Restart, an art platform that unifies cultural spots in Athens and the Greek islands, which is coordinated by the sculptor and Art Manager of Aqua Vista Hotels, Kelly Athanasiadou.
Managed by executives who have a great deal of experience in the hotel and tourism industry, all of whom possess a passion for the hospitality sector, Aqua Vista Hotels is involved in the creation and curation of hotels with a unique identity. Handling everything from architectural aspects to the interior design, the group is also responsible for the overall concept of the experience offered, as well as managing the bookings and the day to day functioning of all departments.
A hotel with a healthy and profitable operation, first class amenities and facilities and the creation of an unforgettable guest experience are all factors which define the objectives of Aqua Vista Hotels when embarking on any venture or collaboration.
