John Tsunis With The Deity Girls

The Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook held a Holiday Reception and Business Networking Event to celebrate the grand opening of its newest art gallery exhibit. A couple hundred business leaders turned out to have the first look at the exhibit. John Tsunis, the hotel's owner, served as the evening's host.

The Holiday Inn Express is the only hotel on Long Island to feature an art gallery in its lobby. The first exhibit opened in October, with over 500 business, community and civic leaders attending the grand unveiling. The new exhibit showcases the work of Smithtown's Ruth Johnson and Centereach's Rita Swanteson. The art, which depicts landscapes and iconic buildings on Long Island, will be viewed and available for purchase by the tens of thousands of guests who visit the hotel each year.

The event was sponsored by Emma's Deity, a new brand of certified organic, kosher and decaffeinated tea, with two beautiful Deity Girls on hand for the event.
