Fine Art Dealers Association (FADA) 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. Our Member Galleries are located in cities around the U.S. – some with locations abroad. Collectors at every level can resource any genre and medium from FADA’s Trusted Gallery Network of expert, encyclopedic dealers. Over the years, FADA has partnered with other entities promoting scholarship within the art community. FADA was founded in 1990 and was the creator and overseer of the Los Angeles Art Show for 17 years and applied the same principles to this annual encyclopedic art fair which grew to become the largest and best attended in the western US. Membership in FADA is by invitation only.
