About the Dallas Art Fair

The Dallas Art Fair Foundation’s mission is to promote the appreciation of the arts in Dallas, Texas. Through the annual Dallas Art Fair Preview Benefit we have raised over one million dollars since inception for the beneficiaries. This year the beneficiaries are the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center and Dallas Contemporary.

We are proud to announce that this year, the Fund will have $150,000 to acquire artworks with for the permanent collection at the Dallas Museum of Art from the Dallas Art Fair.

What Sold at Dallas Art Fair - April 15, 2018

Is everything bigger in Texas?

With 92 exhibitors per year and only a decade-long history, the Dallas Art Fair isn’t the grandest stop on the international art market circuit.

Artists Reimagine The American Flag at The Dallas Art Fair - April 14, 2018

They say that everything is bigger in Texas, and that also includes pride for the United States of America. For a handful or so of the 100 art dealers that exhibited at the 10th edition of the Dallas Art Fair, which runs through April 15th at the Fashion Industry Gallery, the American flag also served as a works of art that carried a form of social commentary on the state of the Trump’s America.Read More

The Collector Who Helped Build Dallas's Texas-Sized Art Scene - April 13, 2018

A white wall interrupts the line of stately oversized McMansions on Preston Road in Dallas, behind which lies a home that looks like it was airdropped in from outer space: a box-like, ultramodern Richard Meier-designed home that belongs to Howard Rachofsky and his wife, Cindy, the collectors who have helped more than most to elevate this oil and gas kingdom to a hotbed of contemporary art.Read More

As Dallas Art Fair Turns 10, the scene is bigger — and brasher — than ever. But can it last? - April 8, 2018

The Dallas Art Fair began inauspiciously. As co-founder Chris Byrne once said, it unfurled its sails in 2009, "three months after the world ended," referring to the Great Recession, the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.

Ten years later, the fair is on a roll, having inspired Dallas Arts Week and now Dallas Arts Month.Read More

Sarah Jaffe Will Collaborate With Artist Jen Ray at Dallas Art Fair - January 31, 2018

A work called Eyes as Bright as Diamonds commissioned by the classical music festival from Berlin/New York artist Jen Ray winds down the radial staircase of the Meyerson for the first time on April 11, during the Dallas Art Fair. It centers a woman who sings. That singer will be pop artist Sarah Jaffe, who got her start in Denton and Dallas and was just a presenter honoring Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson of the B-52s at the 2018 She Rocks Awards.Read More

Hot Talk: Two Power Women Take Center Stage in an Off Road Art Conversation - April 21, 2017

We count on Texas-founded Glasstire, one of America’s leading online sources for art world insiders — and those who want to be insiders — for hot type and incisive dialogue. Beginning in 2015, Glasstire morphed its annual fundraiser from an art auction format into something more lasting and impactful.Read More

Record-Breaking Fair Grips Dallas: $425,000 Piece of Pie Just the Tip of a Wild and Wacky Arts Month - April 19, 2017
