World’s original fine art marketplace debuts at the Dallas Market Hall, September 16—18
Artexpo Dallas joins WestEdge Design Fair to offer one ticket for three days of leading contemporary art and design
Redwood Art Group, the nation’s leader in exhibitions and event production, media, and marketing for the global art community, announces its highly anticipated debut of Artexpo Dallas, taking place at the Dallas Market Hall, 2200 Stemmons Freeway in Dallas, TX from September 16 to September 18, 2022. Exhibitor registration and ticket sales are now open at www.redwoodartgroup.com/artexpo-dallas/.
As a prelude to Texas Design Week Dallas, the newly formed annual fine art destination will host more than 100 exhibiting galleries, art publishers and dealers, and artists from around the world, across 50,000 square feet of uninterrupted convention space within the Dallas Market Hall. Artexpo Dallas will showcase progressive works by more than 300 artists—presenting original prints, paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, ceramics, giclee, lithographs and glass works, among other contemporary and fine art.
The inaugural Artexpo Dallas partners with WestEdge Design Fair, also in the Dallas Market Hall to offer attendees three days of world class art and design–experiencing two major fairs for the purchase of a single ticket. Trade, industry and those simply looking for inspiration will co-mingle to enjoy the latest trends in contemporary and fine art, home furnishings, décor, product and interior design—all under one roof. More than an estimated 15,000 avid art enthusiasts and industry leaders will also be invited to navigate [SOLO], the sister show within Artexpo Dallas, dedicated to highlighting established and independent emerging artists. The fair will also feature its annual lineup of programming, including Art Labs, Spotlight Program, Discoveries Collection and Director’s Picks.
“We are delighted to announce our inaugural edition of Artexpo Dallas,” says Eric Smith, President and CEO of Redwood Media Group. “As we grow and expand our nationwide footprint, we are always looking for markets that have a rich community of collectors and industry aficionados. Dallas has a reputable history as one of the country’s most progressive cities in the art world and we are excited to form a unique alliance with WestEdge Design Fair, as an event organization that has a prestigious stature in the design arena. The two fairs are extremely complimentary, as a major attraction for all first-time attendees. We anticipate the fairs becoming a staple and must-attend event on the annual fair calendar.”
With a growing population and significant economic growth in sectors including technology, design, healthcare, arts and culture, Dallas as a cosmopolitan center shows no sign of slowing down. With an already established Design District, hosting annual initiatives such as Texas Design Week Dallas, throngs of leading retailers, influencers, designers, collectors, and trend-setters descend on Dallas every Fall for two weeks of showroom events, educational and networking opportunities, open studios and a bevy of other events exclusively produced for the design community. Dallas also has one of the largest concentrations of commercial design firms in the country, with a strong representation among the major industry associations.
As part of the interactive schedule of programming, Artexpo Dallas will include Art Labs, featuring specially curated site-specific projects by prominent galleries, art institutions, and art collectives within the show; as well as the Spotlight Program, providing collectors with a focused look at several prominent galleries and artists that will each be creating a site-specific exhibition. The inaugural expo will also feature the Discoveries Collection – selections of artwork chosen by the Artexpo Dallas curatorial team that make up a group of amazing discoveries throughout the fair. Director’s Picks will showcase specially selected artworks chosen by the Artexpo Dallas fair directors. The full schedule of programming will be announced in August.
