Fair Game: The Houston Sequel Houston Fine Art Fair and Texas Contemporary updates

Catherine D. Anspon Posted: April 03, 2012 Now what’s  going  on  in  our  fair  city  regarding  art  fairs?  Here’s  the  latest:  Houston Fine Art Fair and Texas Contemporary both return this fall for year two. The first, and reportedly the larger of the two offerings, HFAF, leads the way September 14 through 16, with an Opening Night Preview Party Thursday, September 13, once again benefitting the MFAH Core Program. MKG  Art  Management’s  respected  duo  Melissa Grobmyer and Janet Hobby have been tapped as advisors and are actively tweaking the look of this Fair, including adding Art Basel–style sections such as Fahrenheit (highlighting hot new galleries less than five years old) and Focus (for dealers that showcase a single talent). A host committee is being readied too. Also new is the Houston Fine Art Fair’s  venue;;  the  show  relocates  from  the George R. Brown Convention Center to the more commodious Reliant Center. Weeks later, we get Texas Contemporary Fair, a lively brash upstart that takes place October 19 through 21, returning to the George R. Brown, with an opening-night preview bash Thursday,  October  18.  It’s  going  to  be  a  big  art  fall   and collecting is definitely, decisively in the air.
