Houston Art Fair Returns in September Under New Management

A revamped fair will have a new home.

Urban Expositions, the Kennesaw, Georgia-based events firm that has taken over the Houston Art Fair, announced details for the upcoming edition this fall. First, there’s a new location: the Silver Street event space on Edwards Street. Second, there’s a new set of dates: September 30–October 2.

“We are thrilled to produce a new and re-imagined presentation of the Houston Art Fair at Silver Street Event Space and the Washington Avenue Arts District,” Donna Davies, vice president of Art Group, Urban Expositions, said in a statement. “The city of Houston continues to serve as the perfect host for this art fair with its influential, international base of serious art collectors and patrons and we plan to bring an elevated experience to the event this year.”

A VIP opening night preview is planned for Thursday, September 29.

Houston Art Fair was acquired by Urban Exposition in 2015 as part of the Hamptons Expo Group, which also included Art Aspen, Art Hamptons, and Art Palm Springs.

The “revamped art fair will feature incredible work from all over the world in a variety of media,” including “compelling installations,” according to a statement from Urban Expositions. This year, in a nod to the popularity of mobile cuisine and all things Portland-related, the fair will also feature food trucks from local vendors.

The list of galleries and exhibitors will be announced in late July or early August.
