Dallas Art Fair 2014 Kicks Off This Week

Located at the Fashion Industry Gallery – adjacent to the Dallas Museum of Art in the revitalized downtown Arts District – the 2014 Dallas Art Fair is set to feature over 90 prominent national and international art dealers and galleries exhibiting painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, video, and installation by modern and contemporary artists.

To kick things off, the Dallas Art Fair team will be hosting a Preview Gala on Thursday, April 10, 2014 which offers art patrons and Dallas’ top collectors the opportunity to preview and purchase exhibited works prior to the public opening of the fair and benefits the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center and Dallas Contemporary.

Established in 1903, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) ranks among the leading art institutions in the country and is distinguished by its innovative exhibitions and groundbreaking educational programs. At the heart of the Museum and its programs is its global collection, which encompasses more than 22,000 works and spans 5,000 years of history, representing a full range of world cultures. Located in the vibrant Arts District of downtown Dallas, the Museum welcomes more than half a million visitors annually and acts as a catalyst for community creativity, engaging people of all ages and backgrounds with a diverse spectrum of programming, from exhibitions and lectures to concerts, literary events, and dramatic and dance presentations. The Dallas Museum of Art is supported in part by the generosity of Museum members and donors, the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, and the Texas Commission on the Arts.

The Nasher Sculpture Center is home to one of the finest collections of modern and contemporary sculptures in the world, the Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection, featuring more than 300 masterpieces by Calder, Giacometti, Matisse, Picasso, Rodin and more. Hailed by the “USA Today” as one of the great sculpture gardens where art enhances nature, the “roofless” museum seamlessly integrates the indoor galleries with the outdoor spaces creating a museum experience unlike any other in the world.

Dallas Contemporary is a non-collecting art museum presenting new and fresh ideas from regional, national and international artists. Modeled after European art centers and located in an industrial building in the Design District, Dallas Contemporary is one of the only institutions of its kind in the United States, offering temporary exhibitions, important lectures and seminal learning programs.

Aside from the Preview Gala, there is a full range of programming scheduled which includes a Dallas Symphony Orchestra Breakfast at the Meyerson Symphony Center, Chit Chats with exhibition artists, panel discussions and a Texas Tour of the Dallas Cowboys Art Collection at AT&T Stadium.
