The Dallas Art Fair is an event that any true Dallasite looks forward to all year long-and I am so excited that the 2017 dates have already been announced! For those who haven't been, the art fair is located in the Arts District adjacent to the Dallas Museum of Art. This four day event features prominent national and international art dealers and galleries that feature a wide variety of mediums and styles from modern and contemporary artists. Each year, the fair is launched by the Preview Gala, which offers art patrons and collectors the chance to view and purchase pieces prior to the public opening. The Gala benefits the DMA, Nasher Sculpture Center, and the Dallas Contemporary, and is one of the biggest and most exciting events in Dallas!

Pictured are a few of my favorite pieces from the 2016 art fair. The first, a colorful painting (acrylic and resin on canvas) by Bernard Frize titled "Repertoire". The second, an installation called "Together" by Juan Fontanive which I found especially interesting. It uses a series of screen prints houses inside a motorized stainless steel frame. A very unique, fabulous piece!
Can't wait to see you all at the 2017 Dallas Art Fair!
