Hotel Zaza Partners with Turner Carroll Gallery to Bring New Contemporary Art Space to Dallas
The first exhibition will feature noted artist Ashley Collins.
DALLAS, TX.- Hotel ZaZa Dallas has announced it will collaborate with Turner Carroll Gallery and Art Advisors to bring internationally acclaimed art exhibitions to the newly opened Stay ZaZa Art House & Social Gallery. Based in Santa Fe, Turner Carroll Gallery will curate shows of nationally and internationally recognized artists in the hotel’s new art and event space.

The first exhibition will feature noted artist Ashley Collins. She will unveil new works from her Twelve O’Clock body of work, in addition to her sought after paintings of larger than life horses and abstract works inspired by her travels through the African desert. The show will open to the public Friday, January 28 and remain on display through the end of March.

The Twelve O’Clock pieces are highly conceptual and consist of 12 original paintings that were inspired by a photograph found of a French Foreign Legionnaire and the relationship he has with his horse. Each painting is named for and captures the relationship between the two at specific five-minute intervals of the clock. Collins’ intent is to show how every relationship in life is constantly in motion and changing. It has been suggested that the horse and the man could substitute for any two individuals in the world.

“Collins’ process of making art has evolved over 26 years. From sleeping on concrete studio floors to breaking price point records for living female contemporary painters, Collins has produced a diverse composition of works,” says Tonya Turner Carroll, gallery owner.

Ashley Collins' paintings are included in collections from Germany to Dubai, Los Angeles to Shanghai, New York to Brunei including noted art collectors Robert Redford, Sally Horchow, Kate Kapshaw, Gianluca Galtrucco, Paul Vanderpool, Wendy Malick, Ringo Star, George Rosenthal, Blythe Danner Paltrow, Holly Hunt, Debra Winger and many other corporate and private collections worldwide.

Collins’ works employ paper aged by the elements, partially obscured images of her iconic horses, and pages from old books and musical scores. She covers these layers of our collective memory with resin, which she moves around each painting with a torch, as the resin creates a life of its own on the surface of each work, swirling and beautiful.

Collins has a long history of giving back to the community through contributions to worthwhile causes across the world. During the Dallas exhibition, she is donating 10 percent of the proceeds to America SCORES Dallas to assist in their efforts to provide Dallas elementary school students a safe, healthy and educational after-school experience through soccer and poetry.

“Hotel ZaZa is an art centric hotel. Located only blocks away from the Dallas Arts District, we are committed to sharing our love of art with our guests and the people of Dallas. We discovered Turner Carroll Gallery at Art Basel Miami Beach and saw the talent they represented. The combination of their international experience in the art world, our Art House & Social Gallery and ZaZa’s creativity will be unmatched,” said Charlie Givens, owner of Hotel ZaZa.

“With the growth of the Dallas Arts District and the entire Dallas arts scene, the potential to collaborate with Hotel ZaZa was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down,” said Tonya Turner Carroll.

The Turner Carroll Gallery has been curating art events internationally for the past 20 years. The gallery has featured artists who have works in the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Berkeley Art Museum, the Belvedere Museum in Vienna, the Russian State Museum, and the Dallas Museum of Art, as well as many esteemed private art collections.
