"Like our namesake, our philosophy is driven by creating culinary artistry," says Chris Shatto, director of outlets at The Ballantyne. "At Gallery, we want the experience to reflect the destination. As we serve locally sourced cuisine, it was essential to us for the art to follow suit. We want to be a part of the community, and the regionality of the artists is important to us." Charlotte's Arts & Science Council (ASC) played matchmaker in connecting Andress with The Ballantyne after the hotel reached out to the nonprofit arts organization in late spring of 2017, looking to collaborate with a local artist and curator. Andress is well known in arts circles both for her work and the promotion of other artists. As a longtime partner in the now-closed Charlotte artist cooperative Ciel Gallery, Andress has worked with dozens of area creatives. Her new gallery, Awaken, is opening in Mount Holly March 23. In her work, Andress illuminates WATCH ART IN THE MAKING Interactive events will be held at The Ballantyne this spring and summer to provide guests an opportunity to meet Em- ily T.
