Turner Carroll Gallery + Art Advisors is committed to exhibiting emerging to established museum collected artists from all over the world. Turner Carroll was founded in 1991 by Tonya Turner Carroll and Michael Carroll, both of whom have extensive experience in galleries, museums, and auction houses, as well as degrees in the history of art. Turner Carroll and Carroll have handled artist estates, written artist monographs, served on boards of art museums and foundations, and served as independent curators and art advisors for corporations, hotels, and art museums.
The vision of the gallery since its inception is to source significant artwork of our era from diverse areas of the world. The gallery is constantly considering the new international art movements/developments which presuppose historical significance, and the gallery owners travel extensively to curate exhibitions for the gallery from other parts of the world. Thus far, the gallery has featured important contemporary exhibitions from Romania, Ireland, France, Russia, and Mexico.
Turner Carroll is dedicated to establishing a context and place in the history of art for the artists it represents. Turner Carroll is in conversation with museum, private, corporate, and academic members of the art world, about exhibition opportunities that challenge its artists creatively while exposing geographically and culturally diverse populations to their works. Some of the museum permanent collections which feature works by Turner Carroll artists include Russian Academy of Art Foundation, The Vatican Museum (contemporary collection), Irish Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Museum of Modern Art, The British Museum, and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
