Ironman® announces partnership with TriGallery
September 22, 2011, Tampa, FL – World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), best known for its worldwide Ironman and Ironman 70.3 brands, announces a new partnership with TriGalleryTM, a unique studio dedicated to providing premium art collections for endurance athletes.
TriGallery 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, TriGalleryʼs Founder. “As a triathlete and artist, I discovered a definite void in the art world to commemorate a triathleteʼs 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 exude the passion of what it means to be a triathlete. TriGalleryʼs collections are a ʻmust-haveʼ for triathletesʼ homes.”
TriGallery will exclusively create the first World Championship Collection for the 2010-2011 racing season with environmental components in mind. “This yearʼs tsunami damage to Aliʼi Drive and the race transition area will be incorporated into the design of the World Championship Collection for each winner,” said Cameron OʼConnell, sales manager for WTC. “TriGalleryʼs 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.
