Lindsay Pollack's Art Market Views
is reporting that NADA, the New Art Dealers Alliance
, "is poised to launch a new art fair July 30-31, in a brick 19th century former foundry in Hudson, New York." The non-profit dealer group, which ran a successful fair concurrent with Art Basel Miami Beach in December, is currently soliciting applications for exhibitors wishing to present artworks, sculptures and performance pieces at the Basilica
, the 8,000 square foot building where WGXC ran a New Year's Eve bash
in 2009/2010. The space is currently owned by musician/photographer Melissa Auf Der Maur, filmmaker Tony Stone, and Tony Stone Sr. and Nancy Barber-Stone, and kicks off new programming with “Slow Fade: A literary reading with Will Oldham and Rudy Wurlitzer” on April 28 and an April 30th culinary event featuring chefs from upstate and New York City making dishes featuring ramps. A similar upstate NADA event, County Affair,
took place in the Sullivan County town of Callicoon last July.
