The annual Spring Gallery Walk will be Saturday, April 17, 2–8 p.m. and will feature over 35 of DADA’s member galleries, museums and nonprofit art spaces. This FREE event allows art lovers to socialize and roam (in a car) from gallery to gallery all in one day. Donation jars for the Edith Baker Art Scholarship will be on hand. See www.dallasartdealers.org for a downloadable Gallery Guide and Spring Gallery Walk flyer with exhibition listings. Maps for the Spring Gallery Walk will be available at each location as well.

As is customary, DADA will offer educational opportunities via its Panel Discussions for artists and art lovers on the morning of the Gallery Walk. This time the Center for Law and Intellectual Property (CLIP) from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law is collaborating with DADA to present panels discussing the legal rights of artists. Panel 1 will be from 10:30 a.m. to noon and will cover digital rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Panel 2 will be from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and will cover the Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990 (VARA). Tickets ($15 per panel) can be purchased online at www.dallasartdealers.org or at the door. Proceeds benefit DADA’s Edith Baker Art Scholarship. The Panel Discussions will be held at The MAC, 3120 McKinney Ave., in Uptown Dallas. The panels will be led by CLIP law students under the supervision of Megan Carpenter, Director of CLIP and Associate Professor of Law at Texas Wesleyan.
Capping off the evening of art and fun is the official Gallery Walk After Party hosted by Nomad Arts and Deep Ellum Enrichment Project (in conjunction with DEEP’s Gallery Walk). The event will be held at 2616 Commerce Street and will feature 20-plus artists, 5 bands and 2 DJs spinning from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. A portion of the proceeds from the After Party will be donated to the Edith Baker Art Scholarship.
