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 provides financial and career
support for visual art students through multiple programs. DADA also
presents the Spring Gallery Walk and Fall Gallery Walk. 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 its 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
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, 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 scholarship 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 Art Chicas and Art Chicos at La Reunion TX.
