Meet You at the Dallas Art Fair


One of our most intriguing rites of spring in the Texas cultural firmament is Dallas Art Fair 2012 %26mdash; and it%26rsquo;s happening this month, unveiling April 13 through 15 at Fashion Industry Gallery, in the Dallas Arts District. Are we going? You can count on it. (Follow our daily blog from the Fair at papercitymag.com/Arts.) Meanwhile, as media sponsor, we%26rsquo;ve once again compiled an advance preview of all the Fair action %26mdash; the international, national and Texas power players; the most scintillating artists; the lively programming; and all the openings. Peruse our guide in advance of your Fair days for info about securing limited-edition Premiere Patron Passes and Patron Passes, as well as Preview Gala and ticketing details. This year, we%26rsquo;d say the theme is %26ldquo;iconoclasts,%26rdquo; from the Fair co-founders Chris Byrne and John Sughrue to the exhibitors, who range from a performing artist transformed into Lower East Side gallerist (Hudson of Feature Inc.) to 20-something dealer Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, whose sensibility is filtered through a Euro, film and fashion lens. We%26rsquo;ll see you at the Preview Gala Thursday, April 12; I%26rsquo;ll be quaffing Ruinart Champagne, pen in hand, by the Kinke Kooi. Dallas Art Fair 2012, Friday through Sunday, April 13 %26ndash; 15; Preview Gala Thursday, April 12; Fashion Industry Gallery, 1807 Ross Ave., 214.220.1278; dallasartfair.com.
