One Ocean Resort & Spa Partners with Stellers Gallery

FEATURING FLORIDA ART INSTALLATIONS IN RESORT'S GALLERY SPACE

ATLANTIC BEACH, FL. March 20, 2017 – Northeast Florida’s chic beachfront boutique resort, One Ocean Resort & Spa, proudly announces a partnership with Stellers Gallery, a full service, northeast Florida, fine arts gallery featuring Florida-based artists. As part of the collaboration, Stellers Gallery will install artwork within the gallery space at One Ocean Resort & Spa. The first artist featured under the new gallery relationship is John Schuyler, a mixed media fine art painter.

“We are thrilled to partner with Stellers Gallery,” says David Mariotti, general manager at One Ocean Resort & Spa. “Through their expert connections with the art community, Stellers has chosen the perfect artist for our first Gallery installation. John Schuyler’s pieces beautifully reflect the artful and inspired setting at One Ocean. I am very excited to see this partnership come to fruition.”

With a nearby gallery located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Stellers Gallery has promoted the importance of local art for over 20 years. Currently one of the longest operating, privately owned galleries in northeast Florida, Stellers has more than 80 different artists on display and while creating an artistic presence in almost every private club, high-profile commercial business and sophisticated residence within the Jacksonville area. The gallery houses a variety of styles ranging from conservative and traditional, to expressionist, abstract and whimsical.

John Schuyler has been experimenting with various paint techniques since the 1990s and brings a unique vision to The Gallery at One Ocean with his exhibit, Where the earth meets the sky. As a mixed media fine art painter, Schuyler works in a unique process of layering, pouring, scraping, and scratching into the surface, leaving traces of earlier information and a buildup as well as an overlap of successive stages. His unconventional approach causes viewers to continually adjust their attention in order to consider the various perceptual possibilities within the subject. The rough textures in contrast with the simplistic and balanced nature of his pieces often leave viewers with a powerful impression.

One Ocean Resort & Spa promotes its Gallery as a representation on the confluence of art, luxury and nature. Beyond The Gallery and throughout the resort, guests find an array of artistic creations that help create a pure, organic ambiance that awakens and inspires. From dramatic sculptures to serene wall installations, inspiration is everywhere at One Ocean Resort & Spa. The elegant and creative spirit of the resort is captured through a compelling composition of artists, each offering a unique vision inspired by the beachfront setting.

Coming Up In The December Online Hotel Business Review

Hotel Law: Issues & Events
There is not a single area of a hotel’s operation that isn’t touched by some aspect of the law. Hotels and management companies employ an army of lawyers to advise and, if necessary, litigate issues which arise in the course of conducting their business. These lawyers typically specialize in specific areas of the law – real estate, construction, development, leasing, liability, franchising, food & beverage, human resources, environmental, insurance, taxes and more. In addition, issues and events can occur within the industry that have a major impact on the whole, and can spur further legal activity. One event which is certain to cause repercussions is Marriott International’s acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. This newly combined company is now the largest hotel company in the world, encompassing 30 hotel brands, 5,500 hotels under management, and 1.1 million hotel rooms worldwide. In the hospitality industry, scale is particularly important – the most profitable companies are those with the most rooms in the most locations. As a result, this mega- transaction is likely to provoke an increase in Mergers & Acquisitions industry-wide. Many experts believe other larger hotel companies will now join forces with smaller operators to avoid being outpaced in the market. Companies that had not previously considered consolidation are now more likely to do so. Another legal issue facing the industry is the regulation of alternative lodging companies such as Airbnb and other firms that offer private, short-term rentals. Cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Santa Monica are at the forefront of efforts to legalize and control short-term rentals. However, those cities are finding it’s much easier to adopt regulations on short-term rentals than it is to actually enforce them. The December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine these and other critical issues pertaining to hotel law and how some companies are adapting to them.
