Kimpton Hotels opens its first art gallery

The Kimpton Hotel chain has opened its first art gallery at the Hotel Palomar San Diego.

The hotel has partnered with Salazar Contemporary Art, a project curated by art dealer Alexander Salazar, to turn a small lobby space into a gallery that will feature a new artist’s collection each month. All proceeds will go to a charitable organization.

The first artist to have his work exhibited is Erik Skoldberg, a native of San Diego. His work has ocean and surf themes and uses vibrant colors. “His ultimate goal is to provide a new vision of eye catching color combinations,” the hotel said in a statement.

Proceeds from the sale of Skoldberg’s art will be donated to “It’s All About the Kids,” a non-profit organization that helps charities working with disadvantaged youth in San Diego. The funds will pay for art classes, supplies and food for underprivileged kids from Christie’s Place, Toussaint Academy and Storefront.

“Hotel Palomar takes great pride in the local art community here in San Diego,” Mark Van Cooney, general manager for the hotel, said in a written statement. “We are thrilled to be able to showcase emerging talent in our new gallery and play a small part in helping some great charities in the area.”
