Newly Renovated Hotel Hosts Old Montreal's Most Colourful Event With Live Painting, a Silent Auction and More
MONTREAL, QC -- (Marketwired) -- May 11, 2015 -- If events could be considered masterpieces, ArtNight at the SpringHill Suites Old Montreal would earn a place on the wall of even the most discerning collector. With its exciting blend of art, action, bites and philanthropy, ArtNight appeals to serious collectors and amateur aficionados alike. And with the hotel's newly renovated suites also on display, the event promises an unforgettable alchemy of art in all its forms.
Ideally situated among hotels near Montreal's Place des Arts, the property will open its doors to ArtNight on May 21 at 5 p.m. when guests can watch five renowned artists in action. Not only is this an exciting opportunity to observe the artistic process, but visitors who find something they can't live without can bid on it in the silent auction. Fifty percent of the funds raised will be donated to the Fondation du Dr. Julien, which opened Canada's first two social pediatric centres and promotes social-pediatric awareness.
Choosing what to bid on, however, may prove tricky considering the talent on display at this modern hotel near Montreal's Old Port. Evocative artists like Zïlon (who got his start during the 80's punk movement and has more than 50 exhibits under his belt) and Yan D. Soloh share space with the likes of Nadine Samuel, Patricia Klimov and GA Homa for a show that encompasses surrealism and realism, abstractionism, tribal influences, pop culture and more.
While visitors meander through the exhibits, they can sample savoury canapés from the hotel, as well as the latest nibbles and sips from Domaine Pinnacle, a family-owned orchard and cidery in Quebec. As they contemplate their next bid, participants can also take a peek at the hotel's newly renovated suites. Offering some of the sleekest and most comfortable accommodations among hotels in downtown Montreal, the property boasts 124 spacious suites outfitted with clean lines, plush touches (think pillow-top mattresses and 39-inch, flat-screen televisions) and a palette of dove grey, white and aqua.
Offering artistry in cuisine, interior design and, of course, on the canvas, ArtNight proves that fine art takes many forms. And its power to promote positive social change is as inspiring as the artworks on display.
