Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, has partnered with SLATE Art Consulting to feature a rotating exhibition of Northern California artists’ work throughout the hotel’s lobby and public areas now and through 2015.

Hotel guests, residents and visitors can enjoy two six-month long exhibitions of contemporary works of art curated by SLATE Art Consulting, made by artists living or working in Northern California.

The show opened November 2014 with a winter-themed exhibition that will continue through May 2015. It will then change to a summer theme that can be viewed through November 2015.

The rotational exhibition includes pieces that can be purchased from SLATE, creating a virtual gallery throughout the hotel’s public areas that complement the noteworthy and permanent “The Art Exhibition at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe” by SLATE Art.

“We’re excited to feature art works curated for us by SLATE, and to provide our guests and the local community with the opportunity to view and purchase pieces for their own collections,” said Joseph Mattioli, general manager at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. “This exhibition broadens and enriches the guest experience at our hotel and residences, and expresses our commitment to fine living.”

Artists featured in the Winter 2014 exhibition include Lisa Fernald Barker, Maria Burtis, Carol Inez Charney, Pauletta Chanco, Robin Denevan, Joanne Fox, Melissa Herrington, Andrzej Michael Karwacki, Michele de la Menardiere, Elise Morris, David Ruth and James Shay.

Works from the collection are marked with placards, and additional information about the artists and their work, as well as notes for a self-guided tour, can be obtained from the Hotel Concierge, at slateart.net/slate-art-lake-tahoe, or by calling 510-652-4085.

“We are privileged to work with The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe as well as so many talented artists, to create a rotating art program that reflects the quality and lifestyle of this spectacular location,” stated Robin Reiners, SLATE’s Business Development and Project Manager.

Weekly tours of The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe art collection are offered at 2 p.m. on Thursdays. Private tours of the rotating art collection, led by one of the exhibition’s curators, can also be arranged for groups of10ten or more, through SLATE Art Consulting.
