showcasing the state's premier galleries including Dallas notables Conduit Gallery, Erin Cluley Gallery, Liliana Bloch Gallery, Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden, Cris Worley Fine Arts, Holly Johnson Gallery, Galleri Urbane, and recently minted 12.26. and recent exciting additions to the scene Nancy Littlejohn Fine Art and Bill Arning. Fort Worth is represented by the iconic William Campbell Contemporary Art. From San Antonio, Ruiz-Healy Art brings a museum-level focus on mostly Texas talents. Then there's an emerging dealer who bears watching: Austin-based Dark Dirty Place, whose refreshing grass-roots gusto interjects humor into the ethos of Texas collecting. Cornell, who adds Culture Place director to her existing title, tells PaperCity, "There seems to be no ceiling as to what we can do with Culture Place. We see the audience as very similar to the physical and online Dallas Art Fair. These are collectors of all ranges, from seasoned to new. Due to our preexisting relationships, I think a large percentage in the beginning will be based in the region, but Culture Place will be accessible across the globe. It is uncharted waters, and that's exciting — we can create our own path to success for us and the galleries." Cornell's parting thought: "Buy art now! Living with art brings joy, fosters creativity, and conversation." Culture Place, Houston makes a strong showing with dealers distinguished by decades of expertise, beginning with Moody Gallery, Inman Gallery, McClain Gallery, and David Shelton Gallery, joined by dual-city gallerist Laura Rathe Fine Art (Houston and Dallas) Page 28: Butch Anthony's Let's Play Ball, 2020, at Dark Dirty Place.
