World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), owner of the global Ironman and Ironman 70.3 brands, has a new partnership with TriGallery – the unique studio dedicated to providing premium art collections for endurance athletes.
TriGallery is unveiling its new Ironman World Championship Art Collection this week. The company will be a part of the 2011 Ford Ironman World Championship by donating two series sets of its exclusive World Championship Collection to each Ironman World Champion. In addition, TriGallery will be an exhibiter at the Ironman Village in Kona.
“The primary focus of TriGallery is to create premium art for the multisport athlete,” said Nancy Murray, TriGallery’s founder. “As a triathlete and artist, I discovered a definite void in the art world to commemorate a triathlete’s accomplishments. Thus, TriGallery was born with the introduction of The Core Collection.
“We want people to fall in love with the art pieces as they exhude the passion of what it means to be a triathlete. TriGallery’s collections are a ‘must-have’ for triathletes’ homes.”
TriGallery will exclusively create the first World Championship Collection for the 2010-2011 racing season with environmental components in mind. “This year’s tsunami damage to Ali’i Drive and the race transition area will be incorporated into the design of the World Championship Collection for each winner,” said Cameron O’Connell, Sales Manager for WTC.
“TriGallery’s approach to capturing the passion of the sport on canvas is a wonderful addition to the Ironman experience.”
The Core Collection and a limited edition of The World Championship Collection will be available at the Ironman Village, selected races throughout the season and at www.TriGallery.com.
