The Art of Luxury
Luxury in itself is an art form. We, at the Saxon, are lucky to be surrounded by art every day. The Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa have always been known for its exquisite understated luxury, whether it be the carefully chosen hand carved African artefacts or the amazing draftmanship of Dean Simon or the precision plated art of food we serve in the restaurants.
So it stands to reason that working in conjunction with Art Eye Gallery, we saw a great opportunity to develop a closer relationship with the art world and the hotel. South Africa has such a rich art history and vibrant developing art scene with some amazing artists slowly coming to the fore.
With the development of the Art @ Saxon, we were looking to not only connect people with established artists, but also to highlight some of the talented new artists struggling to get representation in galleries. The event was a great success and we are certainly looking forward to the next one!
