eannie Freilich of Lisson Gallery helmed a rigorously conceptual booth with text-based works by Lawrence Weiner, and I discovered the feminist staged photography of Juno Calypso at London's TJ Boulting. I was particu- larly impressed with finds presented by Hannah Fagadau and Hilary Fagadau (sisters who grew up in Dallas) and their soon-to-be gallery, 12.26, which opens in Dallas this October. At 12.26, I fell in love with works by L.A. painter Gracie DeVito, whose plein-air canvases are equal parts observed and imagined. Hannah Fagadau noted of this year's fair, "In addition to connecting with individuals from the local arts community, we had the pleasure of meeting new faces from Houston and Austin. We're encouraged to know that the Texas art scene is alive and well." One of my best friends from high school, Meredith Harper, came to town for this year's fair. Harper has been in the art world for 20-plus years and now has a thriving art advisory business in New York City. It was her first year visiting the Dallas Art Fair, and as we made our way through the meandering party, she was in awe. "The cultural base in Dallas is so vibrant and supportive, and it's great to see so many familiar faces," she said. Call it high praise for our ever expanding, nationally and internationally watched art scene from a credible out-of-towner — even if she is my BFF. Additional reporting Catherine D.
