Three Artists from Turner Carroll Gallery to Show “Water-Inspired” Artwork

DALLAS (May 2, 2011) – 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 beginning May 18 and running through August 30, 2011.

The Stay ZaZa Art House & Social Gallery, located at 2400 McKinney Avenue, will be open to the public Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For private showings by appointment, please call (214) 912-7143.

“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.

The Stay ZaZa Art House & Social Gallery is available for events such as art exhibits, business meetings, social events and many more. Private events may be scheduled for 16 to 150 guests. Through this venue, Hotel ZaZa is able to showcase its full-service hotel and catering services, while also offering creative freedom to the guest.
