The gallery, located in Puerta de Tierra in the Old San Juan Historic District, was designed by the architect Luis Gutiérrez and the engineer Pedro Muñoz Marín. Five thousand square feet (5,000) dedicated to contemporary art will be divided into three floors. The main floor will show the main exhibits, and the ground floor will become the presentation and storage area. The third floor, a magnificent roof top garden overlooking the San Juan Bay area will host gatherings and outdoor exhibits. In addition to an inventory of the works of the artists represented, a limited selection of prints will be available for acquisition.
The concept of WOCA is to create a space that goes beyond the commercial aspect of a traditional gallery. “My goal is to break with the traditional gallery model, by integrating institutional and educational components, as well as the publishing and archiving of items within the gallery. As part of its educational agenda, the gallery will host art lectures by specialists in painting, photography and conceptual art; in addition to producing catalogues written by renowned local and international critics. “Furthermore, we want to develop alliances and partnerships with schools and art institutions, encouraging and motivating the next generation of local artists. My goal is that the gallery will become a facilitator for young artists into the international market, as well as to keep developing my roster of established ones.” said Walter Otero. WOCA will continue positioning its artists in the international market by participating in art fairs and special projects.
Walter Otero, has been working in the art world for approximately 15 years. He has extensive experience representing and managing many artists, helping them directly and indirectly, to find new opportunities to boost their careers.

As well as many alliances and projects including Arte Americas, Miami, 2005; Leipzig International Art Walk, Germany, 2008; Pinta Art Fair, London, 2010; All five editions of Circa Art Fair, 2006-2010, San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Otero also assisted in the presentations in Puerto Rico of exhibitions featuring LaChappelle, Matthias Weischer, David Schnell, The Rubells Family Collection and the upcoming Bill Viola show (2013).
Over the last decade, Walter Otero has been a key figure on international collectionism in Puerto Rico by intelligently assessing those who want to create or complete a collection. He has managed to make Puerto Rico the new home of many important collections from celebrated artists including Anselm Kiefer, Nan Golding, Ana Mendieta, Doo Goo Sue, The Chapman Brothers, Bill Viola, Matthew Barney, Immendorf, Kara Walker, Julian Schnabel, Alex Katz, among many others.

The Zielinsky Gallery, Barcelona - creating a dialectic between collectors and neophytes in the art world, bringing different cultures closer together.
The Zielinsky Gallery was born in 2015 in Barcelona, representing established and emerging artists. It is the new project that gives continuity to the work carried out by the Antic & Modern Gallery, founded in 2009, now with an emphasis on contemporary art.
In addition to its space in Barcelona, it also has an office in Brazil, from where it manages its strong links with the Latin American art scene. It promotes artistic and cultural exchange, both nationally and internationally, by producing and producing various exhibitions inside and outside the gallery-museum binomial.

Hotel Akti was founded in 1932 by our great-grandmother, as the very first Hotel on Skiathos.
Ever since, four generations have been taking over the business, modernizing and giving it part of their own touch, always remaining true to the original traditional philosophy..
Founded in 1932 under the name “Hotel Akti” (meaning coast) by Maria Pana-Bogiatzi, it operates constantly until August 1944, when it is burnt down by the german occupants, just before their departure.
Back then, the Hotel is basically “sitting” inside the water, overlooking the east. Its capacity is 6 double rooms and it is the only hotel on the island.
In 1949 it is rebuilt from scratch, by the couple Ourania Vogiatzis-Lazos and Dimitrios Lazos. It is completed in 1952 and operated under the direction of Ourania Vogiatzis-Lazou as a “third class” hotel, with a capacity of 10 double and 2 single rooms.
The couple’s (Ourania and Dimitrios Lazos) 4 children are born and raised inside the hotel. The family uses the ground floor of the three storey building as a residence and the upper two floors serve as the hotel.
Renovated by the owner in 1960, 2 WC’s and a bathroom are added on each of the two floors, while all bedrooms are equipped with wash basins.
In 1988 it is reerected entirely by the new owners, Maria Lazou-Tsomou and Angelica Lazou-Prevezanou, as a new four-story building, designed by architect Yiannis Tsomos. In 1991 it is reopened as a hotel with its original name “Hotel Akti”.
Today the hotel is still in its original location within the town of Skiathos, directly facing the new promenade, the sea and the harbour on the east coast. It has 13 double rooms and a fully equipped 2-bedroom apartment suite with kitchen and living room. The Hotel undergoes its latest transformations in 2011 and 2012 with a major renovation of the interior design of the guestrooms.

Canvas Boutique Hotel Philippines - the walls whisper this: staying at Canvas awakens an innate instinct for adventure.
Trust us, you’ll need more than a moment to take it all in. Canvas is exactly what it’s called—look up to lights that mimic the stalactites of the Underground River, look down to intricate Machuca tiles, look left and right and center as hand-painted wall art narrates stories of the island, live and in color. All the visual imagery will make you want to soak it up—whether it’s as you kick your feet back in your spacious room, share plates of dishes at the vibrant restaurant, or take a dip in the outdoor pool. Whatever you choose, keep your eyes wide open and your heart set to experience adventure — it’s how we do it at Canvas.
STORY OF THE WALLS
If walls could talk, what would you want it to say? The walls at Canvas speak volumes, and—quite literally—every storey has a story. Weaving that narrative into life were a team of visual artists who rendered Palawan culture, life forms and mythology onto colorful, vibrant reverbs of the island's most celebrated cultural traits. The result is a refreshing surge of life, breathed to perfectly weave into the hotel's contemporary fixtures. To wit, the walls whisper this: staying at Canvas awakens an innate instinct for adventure.
Start from the ground up and allow the Canvas walls speak to you. The first floor, dubbed Underworld, is painted with otherworldly elements that'll leave the observer daunted. As you reach the second landing, drown out in awe as you explore Under The Sea, teeming with water creatures floating in colorful concrete. Trek the steps to Land at the third floor, as you imagine yourself at a hike through earthy ground and rich soil, and bask at the summit in the top and fourth floor, aptly called Sky and Mountain, where airy explorations await. See, your adventure has already begun—and you've only just arrived at the hotel.

Besides its excellent location – in the historical downtown, 50 meters from both Váci street and the Danube bank – it not only combines the style of the most demanded city hotels (design and hip hotels), but possesses a unique, distinguishable quality: the building, which was the home of the former Szénásy Körzőgyár (stationery factory) is now not only a hotel, but an art gallery as well, where the young, contemporary Hungarian art is present in every corner.
Our hotel conveys the freedom and ease of bohemian life with the atmosphere of art galleries and exhibitions. Each room has their own ambiance, paintings and other artworks emit the feeling of creative freedom. The public areas display interesting details of the artists’ works. Our gallery – in which both the young and the recognized artists prevail – are home to a vivid, bohemian community.
The guests of our hotel can choose their room based on the paintings, and decide which artwork fits their taste and mood the most.
Thanks to Bohem Art Hotel’s location, our guests can experience the unique atmosphere of Budapest’s historic downtown. The vicinity of the pedestrian precinct, clubs, cafés, restaurants, and the fizzle of downtown life together with the bohemian and creative atmosphere of our hotel offer an unforgettable experience to our guests.
