Hamilton Princess & Beach Club is celebrating the international spirit of sailing with an art exhibition.

The three-month exhibition in the hotel lobby features an impressive series of artwork by well-known artist Ewan David Eason.

The commissioned art will showcase seven homes of sailing teams around the globe. The maps, brushed in gold, will feature Auckland, New Zealand; Lorient, France; Osaka, Japan; Portsmouth, England; San Francisco, U.S.; Stockholm, Sweden; and Bermuda.

The work aims to bring a new perspective to the traditions of cartography as Eason is inspired by the intricacies of mapping.

The exhibition will be hosted in collaboration with TAG Fine Arts, a London-based art dealer and publisher, from April 7 to July 30.

“We are delighted to show seven new works by Ewan David Eason,” says Allan Federer, General Manager of the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club. “It’s an exciting year for Bermuda and this artwork really celebrates the global flavour of sailing. This is a tremendous opportunity for the community to take a journey around the world without even leaving Bermuda!”

Eason’s recent work has been displayed in some of the UK’s most prestigious galleries, including the Royal Academy, Christie’s and the Barbican. Before coming to Bermuda, the exhibit was previewed at the London Art Fair in January 2017.

The artwork adds to the impressive collection already on display throughout the hotel, including in the hotel lobby, various restaurants, hallways and in hotel guest rooms. The artwork collection, which has been personally chosen by the hotel owners, the Green family, includes work by artists such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Banksy, and Nelson Mandela.
