SLATE Art recently joined forces with the Ritz Carlton, Lake Tahoe, to create an exalting showcase throughout the public areas of the hotel. “We are fortunate to work with The Ritz­ Carlton, Lake Tahoe as well as so many talented artists to create a rotating art program that changes for summer and winter seasons, and reflects the quality and lifestyle of this spectacular location,” says Robin Reiners, SLATE’s Tahoe Director, now a full-time Tahoe resident. 

SLATE Art Consulting is a full service art consulting agency that provides a blend of traditional gallery and pop-up galleries and exhibitions to help clients acquire art for their home or office, hospitality and healthcare environments. They also offer advisory services for private collectors, interior designers, curate custom exhibitions, high-end home staging, and art rental programs. SLATE contemporary is a traditional gallery in the Bay Area. Works in the Ritz­ Carlton, Lake Tahoe, exhibition were selected to complement the hotel's interior architecture and Tahoe lifestyle with landscapes and nature-­inspired abstract paintings, photographs and sculpture. All featured works are available for sale.

Just outside of the Mountain Concierge entrance, Wayne Armstrong’s “Juggler” and “Double Scoop” demonstrate refined, muted tones that invent a spirited sensation of playfulness and revelry. 

In addition to the extensive show at the Ritz Carlton, Lake Tahoe, SLATE currently has exhibitions at custom homes and the clubhouse in Martis Camp (by appointment only) and Aspen Leaf Interiors in Truckee (open to the public Monday - Friday). In the Martis camp staged homes, both the home and artwork are for sale and in all exhibitions the art is rotated out as pieces are sold.

Among other artists' work, Angela Johal’s mixed media collages feature images from 1970’s lifestyle magazines collected and categorized to form a modern work with a retro composition.

Currently SLATE has two staged homes and an exhibition at the Martis Camp Clubhouse. “The artwork in the house is amazing and it really makes a difference in the home,” says Blair Porteus of Sagemodern.

300 - 5 ­inch glass birds were hand cast by artist Rob Snyder, and mounted to stand off the wall in a unique flock installation. The shadows and the variation of blue throughout the piece add mesmeric flow and create movement.
