The Prospect Executive Suites connects life & creativity to the business & art communities

When Kelly Pfaff and David James collaborated on the idea of building an Executive Office space in Park City, their vision was to create a work environment that was not only unique and inspiring to the discerning eye, but also appealing and supportive of the mountain lifestyle.

Through their due diligence, they determined that there was a demand in the marketplace for fully furnished private office suites and, much to the delight of second homeowners, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and larger companies looking to establish themselves in Park City, Kelly and David’s concept quickly came to fruition.

“We’re a very unique workplace and when you add in the fine art—you realize how much it lifts the productivity and energy in our space.” — Kelly Pfaff, The Prospect Executive Suites

Kelly and David bring a lifetime of experience from marketing and real estate investing as well as general contracting to The Prospect Executive Suites. From their own attraction to a mountain town lifestyle and an appreciation for the balance of work and play, they created The Prospect Executive Suites as the ultimate work environment filled with distinct mountain modern finishes, full-service conference room, kitchen with complimentary tea, coffee, filtered water, snacks, copy center, convenient underground parking, and amenities such as lockers and showers to support the outdoor enthusiast. It’s also in an easily and readily accessible location in downtown Park City, close to popular restaurants and miles of hiking trails and singletrack mountain biking, not to mention an abundance of world-class ski resorts and backcountry access. This accommodates every important detail for the successful professional to do their business and hit the trails running or take on a powder day in the Wasatch range.

Yet The Prospect is more than just an incredible office space, it is also an opportunity to collaborate with the local art community and bring fine art into the space to create “pop-up” exhibitions. With the assistance of curator Pamela Beverly-Quigley, the common area walls at The Prospect became blank canvases carefully considered and decorated to include original works of art by regional and local artists. “The opportunity for me to work with Kelly and David was a natural fit,” says Pamela.

As a curator, artist, and active participant in the Park City arts community and a board member of the Park City Summit Arts Council, Pamela activated the space as a marketing opportunity to bring in people and invite art collectors who live in Park City and Summit County to connect in this collaborative environment.

CREATING A CANVAS

Their goal was to create the new space in a thoughtful way that would enrich the atmosphere for their tenants and clients. They see the walls within the building as a blank canvas where the artwork from each exhibit inspires and elevates the space.

David James and Kelly Pfaff created The Prospect Executive Suites and Pop-Up Gallery to match the casual-yet-classy Park City attitude, embrace the beauty of the mountain aesthetic, and to be certain that didn’t stop at our front doors. And doing so meant looking beyond fixtures and features and actually considering the environment surrounding our building.

“ David and I set out to offer our community office space that reflects the beauty of the Park City environment that we both appreciate. ” — Kelly Pfaff

ARTWORK AND CURATION

Once the offices were completed Kelly and David reached out to local artist, designer and curator, Pamela Beverly-Quigley to help activate the space with unique exhibitions. Local artists and galleries were invited to participate. Kelly and Pamela worked together to create the title of the show then release a call for entries to the community. Artists then submit their work based on a theme and the show is then curated.

Seasoned as well as emerging artists are selected from the call for entries with new exhibitions twice a year. Beverly-Quigley has since curated 6 exhibitions since 2017. The most recent exhibit is titled: In-Situ/Ex-Situ and runs from November-March 04, 2022. The exhibit features eleven women artists, works from local gallery owner, Jude Grenney of JGO gallery, as well as artists from South Africa and Minnesota.

THE POWER OF ART IN PARK CITY

Pamela Beverly-Quigley has been creating art and designing most of her life. She received her MFA from the University Colorado Boulder, and later became a college professor teaching art and design in addition to working on her artwork. Her fine art training in life drawing, print making and photo processes come together in her conceptual abstract paintings. The artist applies layers of encaustic wax, oil paint, drawing and ephemera into her work—resulting in a textural and ethereal quality.

As a Board Member of the Arts Council—Park City, Summit County, as well as a Creative Director and Designer, she still continues to exhibit both nationally and internationally.

“ I strive to create a visual and emotional experience for the viewer that is relatable in my abstract works—form, color, composition and texture are all important attributes but I also work to convey a deeper meaning that the viewer can relate to…” — Pamela Beverly-Quigley

New Works—Solo Exhibition

Pamela Beverly-Quigley | March 31st, 2021 – September 15th, 2022
Beverly-Quigley’s conceputal abstract paintings address both memory and time. Layers of encaustic wax, oil paint, drawing and ephemera are used to create pieces that have both a textural and ethereal quality.
