Hayley Gallery recently opened a sophisticated satellite space at the Renaissance Hotel Downtown.

Works by a collection of Ohio artists, whose creations include painting, photography, ceramics and sculpture, are blended into the lobby's new, ultra-modern design.

"Our guests have a strong desire to 'discover' when they travel and we are constantly looking for new and exciting ways to provide them with fresh, local and unique hotel experiences that are indigenous to each of our locations," said Geri Lombard, the hotel's general manager.

The Renaissance plans to introduce new works by local artists every two months with the help of Hayley Savage, who owns a spacious gallery in New Albany filled with paintings, jewelry photography and more. The partnership is not the first for Savage--she also is curator of a satellite gallery at Germain Mercedes-Benz of Easton.
