Samantha Louise Marett

Exhibition Location:  Porto Vista Hotel, 1835 Columbia Street, San Diego 92101

In collaboration with Porto Vista Hotel, 1805 Gallery is pleased to announce Samantha Louise Marett as the exhibiting artist at the GlassDoor restaurant located on the 4th floor of the hotel.  The series of abstract paintings on display were created by Marett while in residence at 1805 Gallery in January 2018. The paintings examine her most vulnerable thoughts and experiences accompanied with captions that reveal a fragile and personal memory. Through bold brushstrokes and vivid multi-textured pigments, Marett revisits memories of romantic relationships, financial struggles and insecurities in order to reclaim those moments as opportunities for personal growth and self love.  Marett aims to reframe vulnerability as a strength rather than a weakness. To purchase or to receive  more information regarding Marett’s work please contact 1805 Gallery Director Lauren Siry at
