DALLAS, TX.- The fourth annual Dallas Art Fair, presented by Ruinart, will return April 12 through 15, 2012 to the Fashion Industry Gallery (f.i.g) located at 1807 Ross Avenue—adjacent to the Dallas Museum of Art in Dallas' dynamic downtown Arts District. This year's fair will showcase over 70 international and national galleries, featuring works by more than 400 modern and contemporary artists.

The Dallas Art Fair launches on April 12, 2012 with an exclusive preview gala that benefits the Dallas Contemporary and Nasher Sculpture Center. The gala offers patrons and Dallas' top collectors the opportunity to preview and purchase exhibited works prior to the public opening of the fair.

This year's edition is at the center of a week of major exhibition openings and art-related programming in Dallas. Notable exhibitions include Jacob Kassay at Power Station; Erick Swenson at the Nasher Sculpture Center; Adam McEwen at The Goss-Michael Foundation; Erwin Wurm and Zoe Crosher at the Dallas Contemporary and the opening of the first ever Dallas Biennale curated by Florence Ostende.

"This year's fair represents another quantum leap forward in the quality of our exhibitors," said DAF Co-Founder, John Sughrue. "The arts are redefining Dallas, and there is a growing demand for access to the best of international contemporary art within the community. The Dallas Art Fair week is becoming a defining week in Dallas and on the advent of our fourth year; I remain incredibly excited about the future of our fair, our arts community and our city."

"We want to present a fair that brings together a number of top national and international dealers with our local and regional galleries," said Chris Byrne, Co-Founder. "By presenting these galleries on an even playing field, the viewer can evaluate the art on its own terms."
