The exhibition space at the Vendue, Charleston's art hotel, had its inaugural event in June and since then has become an art hub within the city. In November the next show, titled "I See a Pattern", will open. This show will be a visual candy land of ideas, sculptures and paintings with the aim of propelling creativity in Charleston using the theme of pattern. Over fifty artists from around the globe have been invited by Robert Lange Studios to display works. The massive five warehouse space, a cross between a hotel, museum, and gallery, provides the backdrop for the show.
Dynamic works will be presented from artists living locally, regionally, and around the world. In the request for submissions, artists were only given the name of the show and asked to provide their own interpretation of the theme. Robert Lange, co-curator of the exhibit with his wife Megan and owner of Robert Lange Studios said, “We could not be more pleased how much the art community has responded to the idea of an art hotel in Charleston. We announced the theme for this next show in August and received over 500 submissions.”
This show combines artists from a diverse range of artistic disciplines at differing levels of their careers. Of the over fifty artists selected for the show, including renowned painters Marco Battaglini, Victor Grasso, and Alan Jackson, many artists will be showing work in Charleston for the first time. "I stayed in the hotel just after its re-open and spent the whole trip imagining one of my paintings on the wall," said painter Mathew Bober. "I was honored to be selected for this upcoming exhibit."
Guests to the hotel have quickly found that there is always something new to discover with each revolving art exhibit. "Hotel guests have been truly inspired by the art that surrounds them and many have already committed to return once the next exhibit is installed,” said Pietro Giardini, The Vendue's General Manager. He adds, “The combination of contemporary pieces of art with the architecture and charm of a hotel from the 1780s is what has created a completely unique experience for our guests.”
The Vendue will host a preview party open to the public on Friday, November 21, 2014 from 6-8 pm. Complimentary wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be served. Immediately following the preview, The Drawing Room Restaurant will also be offering an exclusive artsentric dinner following the current shows pattern theme. The dinner will begin at 8:30 and each of the 4 courses will be paired with wine and a short talk given by one of the featured artists from the exhibit.
