What is the secret to art collecting? For many collectors, it all comes down to intuition.
This innate sense makes it possible to wander through galleries and be immediately drawn to new works.
With close to 100 galleries from 15 countries participating, the upcoming Dallas Art Fair, now in its 10th year, will offer an abundance of choices.
The Dallas Art Fair Preview Gala is the opening event to the weekend, with proceeds from this dazzling evening benefiting
Home Grown the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, and Dallas Contemporary.
Through a variety of initiatives, the Dallas Art Fair is cultivating a new generation of collectors while also working in tandem with established collectors.
Shannon and Dallas Sonnier are among this new generation inspired by the Dallas Art Fair.
Though a native son, Dallas met Shannon in Los Angeles, where they both lived before relocating to this area in 2015.
Dallas learned about the fair shortly after moving back to town.
“We really started collecting in Dallas because of our great experience with the Dallas Art Fair,” he says.
The first year they attended, they purchased Texas Teen by Georgia Hayes Home Grown.
“It related to Shannon’s own experiences as an outsider moving to Texas,” Dallas explains.
The following year, they were invited to participate in the Dallas Art Fair Foundation Acquisition Program.
This invitation-only group, now in its third year, is a unique partnership between the Dallas Art Fair and the DMA.
Participants donate to the fund and then have the opportunity to preview the Dallas Art Fair with Dallas Museum of Art staff several days before it opens to the public.
