Artist Marci McDonald featured as apartment community’s first solo artist in collaboration with the Morean Arts Center

The Hermitage Apartment Homes™, a luxury multi-family apartment community developed by The Allen Morris Company – one of the largest diversified real estate firms in the Southeast – has formally unveiled its gallery space to the public with an exhibit by local artist Marci McDonald, in collaboration with the Morean Arts Center, which displays works by local, national and international artists.

Located at 151 7th Street in St. Petersburg, FL, The Hermitage Apartment Homes™ showcases McDonald’s celebrated abstract artwork throughout the building’s main lobby and dedicated gallery space.

Paying homage to the art gallery in St. Petersburg, Russia, the development’s lobby will feature paintings and sculptures from numerous artists and will rotate exhibitions three times each year, with McDonald’s being the first on display until the end of summer.

“We are delighted to open the gallery to residents and art enthusiasts with exceptional work by St. Petersburg’s own, Marci McDonald,” said W. Allen Morris, Chairman and CEO of The Allen Morris Company. “This is a great opportunity to enhance the thriving Central Arts District and for the public to come together and enjoy this fusion concept of modern living with inspiring artistry.”

Set in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg’s lively art district, The Hermitage Apartment Homes’™ gallery is open from 9am-5pm daily to view McDonald’s exhibition.

“Even though The Hermitage has not had its grand opening, the Lobby and Art Gallery are now open to the public, along with the ground floor landscaped courtyard. The business center, demonstration kitchen and clubroom are also nearly completed for the residents’ use, along with several floors which are already leased and occupied by the numerous new residents living in the building,” added Morris.

The Hermitage Apartment Homes™ is comprised of 348 spacious studios, one- and two-bedroom rental residences within the eight-story building and is slated for completion by the end of first quarter 2017.

The leasing office hours are Monday – Friday from 9a.m. to 6p.m., Saturday 10a.m. to 5p.m. and Sunday 12p.m. to 5p.m.
