It's exciting when the seasons change, the days get longer and spending time out of the house seems like a good idea again. Even if the Dallas Art Dealers Association's (DADA) Spring Gallery Walk was just an excuse to emerge from hibernation, we'd think it was a great idea. But, with events and workshops for all levels of artist (even those for whom art is a spectator sport!) the event contains more than its title suggests. For example, the McKinney Avenue Contemporary hosts How to Look at Art: Art 101, which lets gallery goers learn about art and speak one-on-one with a range of contributors to the art scene (the gallery also rounds out the day with an "Art Chat and Chew" and a late night after party). With 32 local galleries and spaces represented, the event’'s artwork is diverse, and includes work by Booker T. Washington High School students and well-established artists, as well as high-end pieces from Heritage Auction Galleries. The DADA Spring Gallery Walk is from 2 to 8 p.m. Saturday at more than 30 galleries, museums and nonprofit art spaces throughout Dallas. Admission to galleries is free; event prices vary. For individual listings and more information, call 214-943-1099 or visit dallasartdealers.org.
