Hastings Hotels Launches ‘Art in the Garden’ to Celebrate Irish and International artists
Hastings Hotels in Northern Ireland has just announced that some of the world’s biggest names in art including Dali, Picasso, Warhol and Banksy will feature in Art in the Garden at the Culloden Estate & Spa from 15th to 30th June.
In conjunction with Gormleys Fine Art, 14 pieces from the Dali Universe in Switzerland will lead the exhibition containing over 120 sculptures, some of which are valued up to £500k, and will be housed both in the grounds of the 12-acre estate and in the hotel.
Guests are invited to take an afternoon stroll in the Culloden’s idyllic private grounds that overlook Belfast Lough which will act as the perfect backdrop to the finest collection of sculpture to be displayed in Ireland. There will also be rooms devoted to renowned artists including Andy Warhol, street artist Banksy and a Modern Masters Collection in the Ailsa Suite featuring Picasso, Miro and Lucien Freud.
Other artists featured will include Damien Hirst, Robert Indiana, Grayson Perry, Tom Wesselmann, Keith Haring, Julian Opie and Irish artists such as Peter Monaghan, Stephen Johnston, Ian Pollock, Patrick O’Reilly, Stephen Forbes, Kenneth Webb, and Orla De Brí.
Howard Hastings, Managing Director of Hastings Hotels said: “Art in the Garden will give art lovers a unique opportunity to view these incredible pieces of work in the beautiful surroundings of the Culloden Estate & Spa. We have worked with Gormleys Fine Art in organising the exhibition and I am confident that visitors will truly appreciate the collection of work that has been put together.”
During the exhibition, there will be guided tours around the Art in the Garden installations daily at 2pm, 4pm and 6pm.
Guests can enjoy special Art in the Garden Breaks with luxurious overnight accommodation, full Irish breakfast and entry into the exhibition from only £230 per room. There will also be an Art in the Garden Afternoon Tea with a curated art tour of the exhibits for £50 per person.
