The 7th annual Dallas Art Fair, founded by John Sughrue and Chris Byrne, kicks off this evening with the Preview Gala. The number of exhibitors has grown from an initial 35 to 95 prominent national and international art dealers representing painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, video, and installations by modern and contemporary artists. An interesting thing to note is that participating galleries and dealers must be chosen by previous exhibitors, which keeps the bar high and the art trendy.
"This year's fair will feature our largest and most diverse selection of exhibitors to date," says Chris Byrne, co-founder of the Dallas Art Fair. "Many of the world's leading galleries will debut in our city for the very first time."
