PAPERCITY ADVERTORIAL Patrick Jones Gallery Celebrates First Anniversary in Dallas Design District P a t r i c k J o n e s Gallery joined the Dallas Design District — one of the premier neighborhoods for art, cuisine, and nightlife in the country — a little over a year ago and has since become one of the city's top destinations for modern and contemporary art. Co-founded by two Texans who share a love for both art collection and art dealership, gallery partners Patrick Jones and Reyne Hirsch have been friends for more than two decades, visiting auctions at Christie's and Sotheby's over the years. In 2020, Jones called Hirsch with a proposition: Let's get the band back together and partner on opening two galleries. Hirsch immediately agreed. The pair worked tirelessly to open galleries in Dallas and Austin simultaneously during the COVID pandemic, experiencing countless challenges and delays. Both galleries were designed to align with the personas of their home cities; the Dallas location featuring modern and contemporary art, while the Austin gallery specializes in graffiti and street art. Despite the unforeseen bumps in the road, in June 2021, the Dallas Gallery opened its doors, with 2,100-square-feet of space showcasing some of the most recognized modern and contemporary- era artists, including Andy Warhol, Banksy, Vhils, and KAWS. (The Austin gallery opened in May 2021.) At any one time, the gallery might have more than 500 unique works in inventory, some works extending beyond traditional photographs and paintings, such as an 18-foot rug by artist Faig Ahmed that seems to melt down the wall and flow out onto the floor. The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art recently requested a loan of the rug for its "Faig Ahmed: Collision" exhibition. It's now back in the gallery for sale. "Our goal is to be a different kind of gallery," Hirsch says. "We're constantly working to stay unique and diverse. We want to appeal to a wide range of people — from the seasoned art-collector base acquiring investment-level art to those who are curious about art but haven't made their first purchase yet." Since neither Jones nor Hirsch live in Dallas (Jones lives in Austin and Hirsch in Houston), trusted partners run the daily operations and grow the brand. "Our gallery managers, Hutton Kalik and M'Kaila Carter, have both done a fabulous job getting the gallery up and running, establishing relationships with the Dallas art community, installing incoming art, and more," Hirsch says. "It truly is a collaborative effort." Each month the Dallas gallery exhibits an individual artist. From October 31 through November 5, watch for Arkansas artist Mark Jackson, and on December 10, the gallery opens a show with Los Angeles artist and photographer Aaron Stansberry; 2023 kicks off with photographer Markus Klinko, who has shot Beyoncé, Lindsay Lohan, and David Bowie.
