This annual fair takes place at the NRG Center in Houston and features a plethora of art shows and exhibits.

Tonight is Opening Night Preview from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday hours are from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. HFAF will provide an international cross-section of works in all media-form, past to present, for art enthusiasts in Houston. This includes modern and contemporary masters, mid-career and emerging artists, and local artists and artists from around the globe.
This event is so huge, that all four TV networks cover the event, and in 2014, there were 12,000 attendees! At HFAF, you can expect to find 80 galleries and international dealers from 10 countries. When it’s all said and done, millions of dollars will generate from art sales. This year, attendance is expected to exceed its 13,500 record.
For both novice and experienced collectors, HFAF will feature panel discussions designed to educate and invigorate art enthusiasts. It will also include memorable on-site installations and special projects.
