Calling all artists, art enthusiasts, lovers of art and museum goers. The Dallas Art Fair is here — it’s the biggest art weekend of the year. For those that favor modern art, this year’s selections from galleries around the world are sure to indulge your sweet tooth for contemporary works.
An array of events and exhibits surround the popular art gathering. One can expect to see pieces from world renowned exhibitors such as Carbon 12 in Dubai, Beatriz Esguerra Art from Bogota, Eduardo Secci Contemporary from Florence, and, of course, Liliana Bloch Gallery and Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden from Dallas. These are only a handful of the close to 100 exhibitors that are being featured.
Events include the Karpidas Collection on April 12 exploring the mind of Carl Gustav Jung, a live-painting performance on the same day by Miwa Komatsu, an emerging Japanese artist, and a panel discussion on Saturday, April 14 regarding the ever-changing world of museums and how they’ve reinvented themselves. A full list of events can be found here.
But more than the art on display, the fair recognizes the growing community that is the Dallas Arts District. With its rapidly expanding footprint, Dallasites have watched the area become an influential landmark and must-see tourist destination for the city. With this season marking the 10th year of the Art Fair, it is no secret that the art bonanza’s becomes more and more popular each year with a dynamic and diverse group of exhibitors and events that often leave art fans buzzing for months afterwards.
