Hotel Featured Artist: Samantha Louise Marett

IMG_5281Exhibition on view February 12 – April 8, 2018 Location: Lobby, Porto Vista Hotel, 1835 Columbia Street, San Diego 92101 In collaboration with 1805 Gallery, Porto Vista Hotel is pleased to announce Samantha Louise Marett as the new exhibiting artist in the Lobby Gallery from February 12 to March 23, 2018. The series of abstract paintings on display were created by Marett while in residence at 1805 Gallery in January 2018. The paintings examine her most vulnerable thoughts and experiences that are accompanied with text that reveal a fragile and personal memory. Through bold brushstrokes and vivid multi-textured pigments, Marett revisits memories of romantic relationships, financial struggles and insecurities in order to reclaim those moments as opportunities for personal growth and self love. Marett aims to re frame vulnerability as a strength rather than a weakness. For more information regarding Marett’s work please contact 1805 Gallery Director Lauren Siry at
