Local artists lend their talents to our hotel
Kimpton Hotel Arras is committed to sharing Asheville’s flourishing arts scene with our guests. That’s why we reached out to local, renowned artists and commissioned pieces to display throughout our hotel’s public spaces and guestrooms.
For example, we asked Alex Matisse to create the lovely porcelain vessels that adorn our guestrooms and suites. John Wayne Jackson crafted the monumental ceramic leaves you see near our lobby elevators. Copper headboard sculptures by Haw Creek Forge's Catharine Murray, waxed carbon wood totems by Carl Pitman and layered gesso works by Steven St. Claire are other examples that give our hotel a collector’s touch.
We hope you join us in the lobby at 5:00 p.m. for a glass of wine and a nightly tour of the commissioned artworks showcased throughout Kimpton Hotel Arras.
