Touching down to celebrate the arts are the 85 exhibiting galleries, artists and fellow creatives taking over the Fashion Industry Gallery for the beloved Dallas Art Fair (dallasartfair.com). After two years of pivots and pauses, the fair is back in full swing and promises to summon an emotional and experiential journey for its visitors.

“Galleries, collectors and our fair team are so ready for the return of Dallas Arts Month, when the whole city lights up with art appreciation and energy,” shares DAF Director Kelly Cornell. “One of our longtime continued… exhibitors, Perrotin, will present a pop-up shop of their artist books and merchandise at The Joule hotel to specially coincide with this year’s fair." Celebrating the 14th edition of the Dallas Art Fair itself, Cornell and the creative team at DAF guarantee the dialogue to be increasingly significant, highlighting voices leading the cultural charge and taking art patrons on a journey unlike any other.

“Galleries like Saenger Galería from Mexico City and Galería CURRO from Guadalajara will bring works by their artists working at the top of their game,” says Cornell. “One example is a hauntingly beautiful oil painting by Javier Peláez in Saenger Galería’s booth, which depicts a woman ‘camouflaged’ in gold.” With an increased number of galleries from Mexico, Dallas Art Fair will enlist an abundance of works that ensure to ignite a new dialogue. Not only will this four-day fair be packed with innovative works of art to take in, the incredible museums throughout the city (the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas Contemporary and more) are also set to showcase a roster of dynamic shows on view during the month of April.
