Art Nashville is very pleased to announce the collaboration with the Fine Art Dealers Association (FADA) for the upcoming fair in October. FADA is comprised of renowned galleries and dealers from around the USA and abroad. Over the past 28 years FADA has partnered and collaborated with museums, nonprofits, and other entities promoting scholarship and engaging the global art community.
Fine Art Dealers Association Member Galleries are dedicated to promoting the highest degree of professionalism, scholarship and integrity and to offering an expansive inventory of quality artworks whose authenticity is carefully researched. Collectors at every level can resource a variety of genres and mediums from expert, encyclopedic dealers from THE TRUSTED GALLERY NETWORK® on FADA.org.
rt Nashville is on course to being a vibrant, multi-faceted, and much needed art fair in the southern region of the United States. It is projected to draw at least 35,000 attendees in its first year to experience exhibits from 60+ local and international art galleries. As such, Art Nashville will be akin to the CMA Music Festival of the arts (the CMA drew over 100,000+ in 2018).
The Fair will be held at Vanderbilt University in an A-frame pavilion. Art Nashville is in the process of partnering with several renowned regional and national companies, experts and influencers to help strengthen the event.
Nashville is booming – and its culinary, sports, dance, film, fashion and art scenes are blossoming. We recognize that it is first and foremost Music City. Therefore, Art Nashville will include music in its programming. Led by Grammy and Emmy-winning music producers FogoLabs in concert with industry professionals, we will put together a nightly music program with regional partners.
Exhibitors: The pinnacle of the fair, our 30 gallery spaces are reserved for galleries with contemporary, emerging or modern artists in their rosters. The galleries in our main exhibition space must be in operation between two and five years, shown in prominent, juried art fairs or biennales. Top consideration if you have major press accolades or have sat on committee boards.
Fine Art Dealers Association: Fine Art Dealers Association (FADA, founded in 1990) Members are dedicated to promoting the highest degree of professionalism, scholarship and integrity and to offering an expansive inventory of quality artworks whose authenticity is carefully researched.

FADA has partnered with other entities promoting scholarship within the art community.
Startup Program: Our incubator program gives exceptional opportunity to emerging galleries and new concept fusion galleries to exhibit new media works and high-concept booths. These galleries will have the opportunity to market and make a name.
