The Normandy Farm Hotel & Conference Center in Blue Bell has announced the addition of a contemporary art gallery in the resort’s conference center.
Old City Philadelphia’s Bluestone Fine Art Gallery will transform the common areas of Normandy Farm’s conference center into a farm-chic art experience designed to engage corporate retreat guests and meeting attendees. Conference guests now can experience active breaks featuring art tours that stimulate the mind for a more productive day of strategy and business planning.
The opening exhibit will highlight 20 works of contemporary art from primarily local artists who have achieved national recognition. The artwork will be presented in a range of media, and all of the art will be available for purchase by the general public.
“Our travelling corporate guests crave the education our staff provides on local farms, local craft breweries, and now the local artists of the region,” said Gary Murray, Director of Sales & Marketing of Hansen Properties, “and it brings us great joy to be able to add excitement and culture to a day of meetings while simultaneously supporting the surrounding communities.”
The Bluestone Fine Art Gallery addition is part of this year’s multimillion-dollar renovation to the property, including upgrades to the hotel rooms, main lobby, meeting space, and connected golf course at sister property, Blue Bell Country Club.
The renovations serve to further establish Normandy as the “Farm of The Future” for corporate retreat guests.
