1997 - 2002
The first time that Dylan Lewis exhibited in North America was in 1997 in Houston, Texas, and was an intimate affair at the home of well-known art collector and patron John Mecom, Jnr. In 2000 Lewis's work appeared at the Dallas International Art & Antiques Fair, in the International Pavilion, in association with Miriam Shiell Fine Art. In the same year, his work was shown at the Toronto International Art Fair, again in association with Miriam Shiell Fine Art. In 2001, this was repeated, and in 2002, his work appeared at the Friends of Africa Foundation in San Francisco, at the home of Gordon Getty.
