Indie Art Fair of Texas presents experimental painting, sculpture, installation and architecture in tandem with the State Fair of Texas

The Art Fair of Texas is an exhibit in tandem with The State Fair of Texas, in the spirit of Le Salon des Indépendants, and Le Salon des Refusés, or the Vienna Secession. It's the interaction between High and Low, Pop Art, Place, and people.
Currently, the adjacently located State Fair of Texas draws 3 million visitors annually.

Let's bring them real art!


The Art Fair of Texas has 21,000 sq. feet of private space. 9,000 square feet are a Studio Gallery, a Studio Hall, and a sculpture and installation garden. 

"Private Going Public" is the theme of The Art Fair of Texas in 2012.

This year, the exhibition is a survey of works by Fred Villanueva, mostly paintings, drawings, and sculptural installation, as well as an opportunity to view the artist's self designed and built studio, studio gallery, and sculpture garden in Dallas' Exposition Park area. Large steel sculptures and monument scale installation presented will be "Steel Tee-pees for D." and "Buried di Suvero". Several large mural scale works will be presented, both indoor, and outdoor. Drawings and smaller works will be presented in the Studio Gallery.

Funding will allow for necessary materials to improve presentation, publicity, time necessary to dedicate to the cause of bringing quality contemporary art to the masses, allowing the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas Art community to interact with visitors to the historic State Fair of Texas, many of whom have never set foot in a gallery or museum environment.
Funding will provide the ability to present Art in its proper context, in dialog with the public.
Funding will also provide the ability to present an artist's presentation and on-site painting process workshop.
Funding will allow for an inaugural opening reception, and closing reception.
Funding will keep the lights on and the doors open!
Funding will, additionally, enable the Art Fair of Texas 2012 to provide challenging, thought provoking contemporary art which will enrich the Exposition Park, and developing South and East Dallas area.

Successful funding of this first inaugural Art Fair of Texas in 2012 will ensure that continual dialogue between art, community, commerce, and people will always be accessible, for artists, for the community, and for the masses.
