DADA Spring Gallery Walk
April 16, 2011
The Dallas Art Dealers Association and its members and friends invite you to its annual Spring Gallery Walk on Saturday, April 16, 2-8 p.m., which will feature over 35 of DADA’s member galleries, museums, and nonprofit art spaces. The FREE Spring Gallery Walk allows art lovers to socialize and roam (in a car) from gallery to gallery all in one day. Many friends have been made at this fun event.
The Spring Gallery Walk flyer with exhibition listings is available here as pdf for convenient printing.
A new part of the Spring Gallery Walk will be the implementation of DADA’s Docents. Eight of DADA’s galleries will host high school docents to help educate the public and train the students to discuss art. This program is part of the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund.
Intownmix is the media sponsor of the event.

And Artist Career Development Fund
To celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2005, DADA created a scholarship honoring a respected member of the Dallas art community and one of its founding members, Edith Baker. Edith owned and directed The Edith Baker Gallery in Dallas for nearly thirty years before retiring in 2004. Every year, the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund financially benefits a visual art student pursuing the study of visual arts in college as well as presents Art Chicas at La Reunion TX, a career fair at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, juried exhibitions of Booker T and Dallas County Community College students’ artwork, and biannual educational events.
