entire project or the finishing touch. We strive to make the process easy by learning the specific needs of the project and offering as many relative options as possible.” Easterling makes a point about framing, saying: “Keep it simple. Let the artwork be the star of the show! A more simple and sleek frame lends an air of sophistication to the space.”


Milan Gallery Tal Milan, owner of Milan Gallery, is excited that Dallas is experiencing growth not only from new collectors moving to Dallas but also from collectors visiting from around the nation and the world. Because of this, Milan Gallery carries a variety of art to support every taste. “You will have a volume of buyers from the modern genre all the way to the traditional impres- sionism genre,” he says. He points out that art collec-


tors are buying everything from contemporary to Texas-style art and from landscapes to vistas of color.


“One leading trend is in


large-scale sculptures and new lighted sculpture with unique stands made with LED lighting,” he says.


For 2017, Milan plans to bring old favorites to his gallery, including pop artist Peter Max and Dr. Seuss—who is quickly becoming highly collected. In fact, Milan points out that many museums are collecting the same Dr. Seuss work that the public can purchase. Regarding his experience with interior designers, Milan says: “My gallery has worked for 45 years alongside interior design teams, and I want to continue to do so as we try hard to bring fabulous artists to our city and the experience that goes with it. We look forward to working hand in hand with designers as we help give their clients the attention to detail they deserve.”


Circuit12 Contemporary Circuit12 owners Gina and Dustin Orlando have also noticed the influx of many new transplants moving to Dallas from larger art markets. This in


turn is enticing artists to move here. “The artwork being pro- duced in this region seems to have a voice and an identity of its own,” says Dustin. “How- ever, influences from major art markets, such as New York and LA, are starting to become more apparent and accepted here. This, I think, is what helps Dallas have such a unique art scene. It is still in its early development and a lot of exciting things are happening around us every day.” The couple is excited that


the culture generated around art will continue to grow in the city. “This will help shape and develop what the future of the Dallas art scene will become, which, in my opinion, will be due to the demand that will come from Dallas’ new residents who will bring their expectations of art and culture to the city,” he says.


Dustin also mentions that the Dallas Art Fair continues to grow and become more recog- nized as an international event as opposed to a regional fair. “That has helped put more attention on the Dallas art scene


from a global perspective,” he says. Add to that the fact that artists are advancing their art-making practices and more galleries are fine-tuning their existing programs; it all adds up to a high-quality art market that contributes to the cultural growth and development of the city.


Tom Hoitsma Artist Tom Hoitsma, represented by Craighead Green Gallery, is enjoying the current trends since his work fits perfectly. He creates bold, colorful abstract pieces on a large scale. “While I also paint more representa- tional landscapes, I have seen the interest in these paintings wane,” the artist says. For 2017, Hoitsma will be continuing his “deconstructed landscape” se- ries. These paintings are vibrant, joyful and monumental in scale. He feels that the current con- flicts in the world are helping to drive the purchase of lighter and more joyful and colorful art. Hoitsma is also enjoying the cohesive art environment in Dallas. “With many galleries
