About Fahrenheit at the Houston Fine Art Fair:

Houston is a fertile terrain for nurturing young upstart galleries. Searching the nation, we have uncovered an exciting set of emerging galleries who have been invited to participate in the Fahrenheit section. Fairgoers will have the opportunity to explore, and discover these trendy new, hot galleries that are re-defining the cutting edge of contemporary art.

About Houston Fine Art Fair (HFAF):

The second annual Houston Fine Art Fair returns for an eagerly awaited encore. Last year, 10,500 enthusiastic art lovers explored the offerings of 83 dealers. As the first ever fine art fair in Houston, it blew the cover off the country’s best-kept secret. With the rousing success in show attendance and impressive art sales, Houston is now becoming recognized as the new cultural gem of the US – home to major museums, a thriving gallery scene and a strong base of passionate collectors and patrons.

The fair moves to Reliant Center this year in efforts to grow into and serve as the anchor art event of the south central region. As the leading entertainment complex in the state, many of the best attended cultural, sporting and public events in Texas are held at Reliant Center. The fair site is adjacent to Reliant Park, home stadium of the popular NFL Houston Texans. Reliant Center also neighbors the world respected Houston Medical Center.

HFAF aspires to reflect Houston’s sophisticated and diverse collecting practices, where art enthusiasts will encounter an international cross-section of works in all media, from post-war to the present. With the support of our discerning Selection Committee some 75+ distinctive exhibitors were chosen from across US, Latin America and Europe will be participating in the fair in 2012. Only 65% of exhibitor applications received were accepted for participation. The fair will feature modern and contemporary masters, mid-career and emerging artists from around the globe. HFAF will also feature memorable on-site installations, special projects, and an invigorating program of panel discussions designed for both novice and experienced collectors.
