This winter, Gallery MAR is pleased to curate a permanent collection of fine art for One Empire Pass, an intimate community of 27 private ski-in / ski-out residences with unprecedented amenities in the incomparable Deer Valley Resort. Below, read from their website to learn about our partnership as their chosen gallery. Learn more at OneEmpirePass.com.

At One Empire Pass, we’re committed to offering you the ultimate experience in modern mountain lodge living that continually rewards your active family. With this in mind, we are thrilled to bring you, in partnership with Park City’s renowned Gallery MAR, our exclusive original collection of modern artistic excellence: The One Empire Pass Gallery of Art.

Showcasing the theme of “Contemporary Nature,” our collection has been handpicked to evoke the classic images of wildlife and landscapes throughout the American West — but with a modern twist. Featuring compositions in oil on linen, mixed media with resin, and serigraph renderings on panel, this unique collection brings together historical painting materials and state-of-the-art computer programming-inspired images.

The highest in quality is paramount at One Empire Pass, so we have worked with Gallery MAR to curate our collection from several prestigious artists around the nation. These artists have hosted collections across the country, won myriad awards, and currently display artwork in many of the most well known museums, hotels, and clubs in the United States.

The paintings themselves bring an additional touch of exclusivity to our community: every piece in the collection is a one-of-a-kind original, and four of the pieces were custom commissioned especially for One Empire Pass. Since innovation never takes a backseat here, two of our pieces were created by the unique and acclaimed Kollabs partnership, a dynamic duo of artists who work together — and often cancel out each other’s work — to create compositions that offer an intriguing perspective on the interaction between wildlife and the human experience

And though our collection is exclusive, it will always be just a few steps away, located in the community areas right here at One Empire Pass:

Several pieces will be on display in the central foyer, including an 8-foot wide diptych (a piece with two flat plates attached by a hinge). Created by Wyoming artist Matt Flint, this work is composed of silver-leafed panels layered with gesso, India ink, and a historically — derived walnut-shell gel paint first popularized by Leonardo DaVinci.

The main guest lounge will be home to an especially intriguing piece by the San Francisco Bay Area’s acclaimed computer-programmer-turned artist, Jylian Gustlin. Layered with hundreds of paints, archival and metallic papers, and other mixed media, the image is based on shapes created by the ascending mathematical pattern known as the Fibonacci sequence. This piece stands as solid proof to the kids that math really can be used after they graduate!

Finally, since “presentation is everything,” a custom lighting plan has been specially designed by our world-class development team to bring out the best in our exclusive collection. We’ve taken every step to ensure that our One Empire Pass artwork perfectly reflects the colors, textures, and ambiance of the stunning local landscapes that inspired it.

So after a day of skiing, sightseeing, or sunning, spend the evening browsing your own world-class art collection at your leisure. There’s no need to rush through it: this is no mere visiting collection, but a permanent addition to the unprecedented community lifestyle at One Empire Pass, designed to challenge our perceptions, inspire the next generation of artists, and perhaps awaken the creative in all of us.
