|HOTEL ZAZA DALLAS + TURNER CARROLL GALLERY // MAY 12
|Continuing their partnership, Hotel ZaZa has announced its third collaboration
with Turner Carroll Gallery and Art Advisors to bring the next show to the Stay ZaZa
Art House & Social Gallery. The show is titled “Wet” and will feature new works by
painters Eric Zener and Conrad Kern, as well as sculpture by Gino Miles. The
exhibition featuring water-themed works of art will be open to the public
beginning May 12 and running through August 30, 2011.
“After the success of the last two shows by Turner Carroll, we are excited to see
what the next show brings,” said Benji Homsey, president of Z Resorts Management
and Development, LLC. “This partnership has proved to be an excellent use of
the space in the Stay ZaZa Art House & Social Gallery. This event space has
many uses, but hosting curated exhibitions by well-known artists definitely
aligns with our vision for this creative extension to the hotel.”
Californian artist Eric Zener's paintings portray his fascination with water. Sunbathers,
swimmers, children playing in the water, and the movement of the water itself,
upon impact, are consistent Zener themes. The concepts of water as life-giving
force, the place of first home, and as an element of energy are compelling
aspects which preoccupy Zener.
“I use our relationship with water, nature and each other as a metaphor for
transformation, refuge and renewal," said Zener.
Zener's paintings are the subject of a new, 250-page monograph. He will be
present at the opening reception at the Stay ZaZa Art House & Social Gallery
to sign the limited edition monographs. His paintings are also featured in the
current exhibition at the Long Beach Museum of Art in California. Zener’s work
has been exhibited internationally in Australia, Japan and Spain and is
included in numerous corporate, private and museum collections. His work
has been featured in the Robb Report, Juxtapoz, Art & Antiques, Travel &
Leisure, New American Paintings, American Art Collector, New York Magazine,
The San Francisco Chronicle and ArtNews Magazine.
Conrad Kern and Gino Miles are New Mexico artists. Kern's color field paintings
and Miles' brilliantly colored sculptures both glisten with their layers of color
and sheen. Miles' sculptures have been exhibited internationally and are in
many important private collections in Italy, where Miles lived and taught for
several years. Both Kern’s and Miles' works have been exhibited throughout
the U.S., and Turner Carroll Gallery has coordinated large-scale public and
privately commissioned works by each of these artists.
