Upcoming Event: Dallas Art Fair

Beatriz Esguerra Art

One of the most highly anticipated events of the year, The Dallas Art Fair, will be taking place on April 11-14, 2019.

 

It offers collectors, art professionals, and the public to engage with a rich selection of modern and contemporary artworks presented by leading national and international galleries, as stated in press materials.

 

The Art Fair will be held at the Fashion Industry Gallery in the Dallas Arts District. Home to some of the most incredible performing and visual arts organizations, the district will showcase an exhibition space that sprawls over 70,000 square feet.

 

Amenities within the mid-century modern building include customized booths, polished concrete floors, natural lighting, and a spacious lobby.

 

Through the annual Dallas Art Fair Preview Event, they’ve raised over $1 million for beneficiaries.

What started in 2016 with $50,000 was doubled to $100,000 in 2017. As the fair evolves and grows, it has left a greater footprint in the city of Dallas.

“Our new project space will open even more doors for our partners and exhibitors, and is a testament to our commitment to providing high-quality cultural programming for the city even when the fair is over” – John Suhgrue, Dallas Art Fair Chairman
