Work by island artists to feature in Cambridge Beaches rooms
Visitors to a West End resort will be able to enjoy work by island artists when their prints and photographs feature in guest rooms.
An interior design renovation project at Cambridge Beaches Resort and Spa is themed around the spirit of a world traveller.
Phil Hospod, the founder and chief executive of Dovetail Co, which took over the historic Sandys property last year, said: “We believe art has the potential to elevate guest experience while promoting local stories and artists in a meaningful way.”
Lisa Howie, the owner of Black Pony Gallery, provided direction in collating the works and presented a wide range of portfolios to choose from.
Mr Hospod said: “It has been a pleasure working with Lisa to introduce a collection of Bermudian artists to the guests of Cambridge Beaches.”
Ms Howie said: “The dominant decor at Cambridge is really the environment itself. The water views and beach scenes are remarkable.
“Now, when the guest comes in for some respite from the natural beauty, they encounter further compelling scenes in the artwork and overall decor.
“The reimagined rooms feel so welcoming and homelike as a result.”
Island residents enjoyed seeing the extent of the collection at an open-house event in September.
