W hat was previously a rite of spring in the calendar of global art fairs — Dallas Art Fair, in our mind, the only non big-box art fair in America co-founded and run by a civic leader — pivoted in 2021 to the fall. (The 2022 edition is back on track for April 21 through 24). Anticipation and expectations run high as Dallas Art Fair tenaciously returns to Fashion Industry Gallery, in the heart of the Dallas Arts District, Friday, through Sunday, November 12 through 14. In the interest of COVID-19 safety, guests are required to show proof of vaccination. The Fair is changing up the Preview Gala to allow for more social distancing, rebranding the event as the Early Access Champagne Soirée (Thursday, November 11, 4 to 8 pm, still benefiting Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, and Dallas Contemporary). New: Eminent galleries host evening viewings and other special experiences, notably open houses at The Warehouse and The Karpidas Collection. (Sign-up is often required: see for details.) Just in: The Fair steps up for women's rights with a $50,000 donation to Planned Parenthood Greater Texas, an activist response to our state's restrictive abortion law. While thinned a bit due to the pandemic, the Fair will offer nearly 60 galleries that reflect not only the best of Texas (more on that in a moment), but also a transatlantic vision via a curated roster of dealers arriving from Berlin, Bogotá, Florence, Kiev, (Continued) FAIR THEE WELL: DALLAS ART FAIR RETURNS BEST BOOTHS, WHOM TO SEE, WHERE TO BE, AND ALL THE BUZZ AS ONE OF AMERICA'S TOP ART FAIRS OPENS THIS MONTH.
