Ritz-Carlton Montreal Showcases Exhibition From Renowned Montreal Artist, Danielle R O Y

«Une fleur = un etre humain», "A flower = a human being" Collection Will Be on Display at the Luxury Montreal Hotel Until September 2014

MONTREAL QC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- This summer, Ritz-Carlton Montreal offers guests an insider experience of the city's arts and culture scene with an exhibition by renowned local artist, Danielle R O Y. Her collection, titled «Une fleur = un être humain», "A flower = a human being," will be on display at the iconic luxury Montreal hotel until September 5, 2014.

The exhibition will be integrated throughout the downtown Montreal hotel, with select pieces on display in guest rooms and suites, salons and public spaces, with R O Y's extraordinary sculpture of a small child, "Cherry Rose," in pride of place on display for guests to enjoy in the boutique hotel's garden.

"It is with great pleasure that the Ritz-Carlton Montreal presents the works of Danielle R O Y; painter, designer, artistic director and stage director," says Andrew Torriani, CEO and General Manager of the Ritz-Carlton Montreal. "We invite you to discover these works that reflect the talent and passion of the artist."

R O Y found her inspiration for the collection during a long stay in Paris, where she was drawn to people living on the streets. She creates powerful imagery of urban portraits by uniting people from all walks of life with beautiful flowers, establishing a poetic and dream-like universe in her work.

R O Y is no stranger to the Montreal arts scene, having served as Artistic Director of the street arts portion of the Just for Laughs festival from 2007 to 2013. Her focus on visual arts, multimedia exhibitions and animation has inspired her to focus on popularizing art in all forms, making it accessible to the general public.

«Une fleur = un être humain» officially opened at Ritz-Carlton Montreal on Wednesday, July 9, 2014, with an exclusive, invitation-only event for members of the Montreal arts community and members of the media, from 5.30pm to 8.00pm. Several exclusive items will be on sale at the hotel until September, including a quilt, pillows and souvenir books, with prices starting from $95.00. Artwork will be available for sale on request.

About the Ritz-Carlton Montreal
Granted the prestigious CAA/AAA Five Diamond Award -- the only one in Quebec -- the Ritz-Carlton Montreal has been the most elegant address in the city since 1912. In May of 2012, the hotel re-opened after an extensive multi-year restoration, which saw the Montreal landmark transformed into a chic and modern space.

Located near many high-end boutiques, galleries and museums, this luxury hotel offers guests 96 guest rooms and 33 suites featuring the latest in high-tech amenities, while details from the original hotel abound to accentuate its seamless mixture of old and new. The hotel's restaurant, Maison Boulud, is operated by the hotel in collaboration with Chef Daniel Boulud and his restaurant management company, The Dinex Group. It was designed by Super Potato, one of the world's most highly reputed restaurant design firms.

The first hotel in the world to combine the Ritz and Carlton designations, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal is located in the heart of Golden Square Mile, home to Montreal's elite in the early twentieth century. A symbol of refinement and elegance, the hotel has welcomed some of the world's best-known heads of state, artists and business magnates. Several of the 20th century's leading figures have stayed there, including the Queen Mother, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Richard Nixon, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, George Bush Sr., as well as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who celebrated their first wedding at the hotel.
