by Bill Davenport June 30, 2011

A new dribble of press info from the Texas Contemporary Art Fair! Two things stick out as really new:

1.They’re “currently in the process of accepting applications from galleries and Texas-based artists for exclusive showcase in solo booths,” reviewed by fair co-directors Max Fishko and Jeffrey Wainhause in collaboration with Kerry Inman of Inman Gallery and Federicka Hunter of Texas Gallery.
