Dallas, June 01, 2012

The Fairmont Dallas is pleased to announce an opening reception in honor of Artist in Residence Courtney Miles on Saturday, June 30th from 7:00-10:00 p.m. The Fairmont Dallas’ Artist in Residence program features local and regional artists who reside in the hotel for three months at a time while working in an on-site studio space. Coinciding with the conclusion of her residency, Ms. Miles’ new multimedia exhibit will be on display from June 30th through August 4th. The exhibit will feature large-scale oil paintings, drawings, watercolor paintings, an installation and a pop-up store with tote bags designed by the artist.
Ms. Miles’ work examines themes of contemporary celebrity culture, materialism and self-absorption. “Living on the top floor of the hotel was a glamorous experience,” said Ms. Miles. “It helped me to identify with the subjects of my art – celebrities – and inspired me to paint myself, which I had not done previously in my work.”
Ms. Miles has served as Artist in Residence since April 2012. At the conclusion of her residency, Ms. Miles will contribute a piece to the hotel’s permanent art collection.
WHAT: Exhibit opening reception for outgoing Artist in Residence Courtney Miles. Guests are invited to enjoy wine and savory hors d’oeuvres while viewing Ms. Miles’ exhibit.
WHEN: Saturday, June 30th, 2012 from 7:00pm –10:00pm
WHERE: The Fairmont Dallas

About the Artist-in-Residence Program
The Fairmont Dallas’ Artist-in-Residence program is a collaborative initiative featuring local, regional and national artists who reside in the hotel for three months at a time while working in an onsite studio located on the “O” level in the hotel’s south tower. Artwork created throughout the length of the artist’s stay serves various purposes – some is displayed in public areas of the hotel, others illuminate the hotel’s themed Arts District Suite and a number of select pieces benefit various philanthropic efforts.
