The Dallas Art Dealers Association is an affiliation of established independent gallery owners and nonprofit art organizations in the Dallas metropolitan area. As a professional and educational resource for the community at large, DADA facilitates the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund, which provide financial and career support for visual art students. DADA also presents the Spring Gallery Walk and the Fall Gallery Walk as well as panel discussions. Organized in 1985 by June Mattingly of Mattingly Baker Gallery, the Dallas Art Dealers Association is a 501(c)(6) organization.
Like the Art Dealers Association of America, membership in DADA is by invitation of the board of directors. In order to qualify for membership, a dealer or nonprofit space must have an established reputation for honesty, integrity, and professionalism among their peers, and must make a substantial contribution to the cultural life of the community by offering works of high aesthetic quality and presenting worthwhile exhibitions. DADA is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of ethical practice within the profession and to increasing public awareness of the role and responsibilities of reputable art dealers and nonprofit visual art spaces.
ABOUT THE EDITH BAKER ART SCHOLARSHIP AND ARTIST CAREER DEVELOPMENT FUND
To celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2005, DADA created a scholarship fund 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 30 years before retiring in 2004. Every year, the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund, a 501(c)(3), financially benefits a student pursuing the study of visual arts along with giving that student a gallery internship, a mentor and an artist studio visit. The Fund also presents a career fair at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, two juried exhibitions of Booker T and Dallas County Community College students’ artwork, a docent-training program, biannual educational events, and participates in Art Chicas and Art Chicos at La Reunion TX.
