The Dallas Art Fair released the exhibitor list for next month’s event. This year’s edition, scheduled to take place at Fashion Industry Gallery, features 58 local, national, and international exhibitors. Of the 58 participating exhibitors, 11 are local to Dallas.
Those include 12.26, Conduit Gallery, Cris Worley Fine Arts, Erin Cluley Gallery, Galleri Urbane, Keijsers Koning, Liliana Bloch Gallery, Oliver Francis Gallery, Sputnik Modern and Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden as returning exhibitors. Several of the art galleries participated in last year’s digital-only art fair, held in response to the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Barry Whistler Gallery, the only local exhibitor that signed a letter for refunds from the Dallas Art Fair’ for last year’s cancellation, is absent for the exhibitor lineup.
This year, the returning exhibitors are joined by P.A.O. Projects, the Peter Augustus Owen contemporary art gallery, which opened in May. Kelly Cornell, director of the Dallas Art Fair, said, “we are so excited to be able to once again host the Dallas Art Fair. After such a long absence, our audience is eager for the energy of a live event, and this year’s participating galleries are bringing incredible work.” Preparation is underway for next year’s fair, which will take place on April 21, in the heart of Dallas Arts Month.
General admission tickets are on sale for the three day event, which starts with a press preview on November 11.
