Texas Contemporary Art Fair Slated for October

Houston art aficionados will have not one, but two chances to pick up some contemporary art from around the world as the Texas Contemporary Art Fair (TCAF) and the Houston Fine Art Fair (HFAF) hold their inaugural events this fall.

TCAF recently announced that it will take place in October and feature around 50 participants from around the world. It will include a section showcasing pieces by Texas artists that focus on energy and sustainability. According to a relase, participants include Houston's Inman Gallery, Texas Gallery and Wade Wilson Art as well as several galleries from San Francisco, Los Angeles and Miami. The fair is slated to run October 20 to 23.

TCAF is not to be confused with the Houston Fine Art Fair, which is slated for September 15 through 18 and will feature around 80 participants from Texas, the U.S., Latin America and Europe. Houston's own Meredith Long & Company, Barbara Davis Gallery, Hiram Butler Gallery, McClain Gallery, Moody Gallery, Sicardi Gallery and Anya Tish Gallery are all expected to participate. Galleries from Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Venezuela, are also expected to join galleries exhibitors from Albuquerque, Baltimore, Charlotte, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Santa Fe, St. Louis and many others. According to a release, special emphasis will be placed on Latin American art.

Both events will take place at George R. Brown Convention Center.
