Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas

I have been holding off on announcing this for sometime, but now that things are set in stone it is time to shed some light on what has been happening over the last few months.

13 of Dallas’ premier art galleries have banded together to form CADD (Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas).

Below is an official statement from the organization…

    Too bad they’re not ‘professional’ enough to write in complete sentences…

    Way to catch my typo…however, you sound a little bitter in your anonymous comment.

    That is exciting news! It is about time that the contemporary art supporters unite, particularly in Dallas. People want to know what happened to art. In Dallas, we need to catch up to what the meaning in current art instead of dwelling in outdated art. What will CADD do to bring attention and significance to emerging artists today? What events do they have planned?

    Right now all that is planned is the art fair at 333 in May. What has been talked about is organizing a lecture series, scholarships and grants for artists and things along those lines. The CADD website will launch at the end of March and that will have a lot more information on it, and will be updated regularly.
