Gallery artist Brie Ruais had a work recently acquired in to the permanent collection of The Dallas Museum of Art.

The Dallas Museum of Art has acquired several works from the Dallas Art Fair.

For the third year in a row, the Dallas Art Fair Foundation Acquisition Program has selected works from artists exhibiting at the Fair for the museum’s permanent collection. The grant, made possible with funding from the foundation as well as private donors, has tripled in size since 2016, from $50,000 to $150,000.

The winners were announced on Thursday: Brazilian abstract photographer Geraldo de Barros, Harlem-based interdisciplinary artist Sanford Biggers, multimedia artist Alicia Henry, imaginary landscape painter Shara Hughes, the Chicago artist known for huge black and white wall drawings, Tony Lewis, and abstract sculptors Matthew Ronay, and Brie Ruais.

“The diverse works acquired from the Fair span the media of painting, photography, monumentally-scaled drawings, and ceramics, and range in date from 1949 to 1917,” says Dallas Museum of Art Associate Curator Katherine Brodbeck, in a press release. “We hope to share these works with audiences in the near future.”

The majority of the pieces selected this year are from New York galleries: Brie Ruais’ stunning 2017 ceramic wall work, “Broken Ground Red,” from Albertz Benda; “Condition,” a small 2018 sculpture by Matthew Ronay from Casey Kaplan seems to embrace both science and art; Shara Hughes’ 2018 painting, “Gusto,” is from Rachel Uffner Gallery.
