Coming in August, Galleria Dallas will partner with the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) to offer a “sneak peek” of what has been called “the year’s blockbuster attraction.” Beginning August 5, Galleria Dallas visitors can experience a unique preview of the upcoming DMA exhibition that showcases a rarely seen series of paintings by Vincent Van Gogh. Van Gogh and the Olive Groves, co-organized by the DMA and the Van Gogh Museum, will premiere here in Dallas beginning October 17, 2021. Shoppers at Galleria Dallas will have the opportunity to learn more about the exhibition, see select reproductions of the paintings in the series, and receive a sampling of educational resources as a part of the experiential presentation on view through August 31.
KC Hurst, the DMA’s Chief Marketing & Communications Officer finds outreach such as the Galleria Dallas partnership an important part of the organization’s mission.
“The Dallas Museum of Art is committed to sharing art with North Texans where they are, and, as the proud art museum for the City of Dallas, also vital that we take the lead in placing art in and around our diverse community,” explained Hurst. “Opportunities like this help us to expand the meaning of learning with possibility and community, and we are excited to be partnering with Galleria Dallas in this creative way.”
The Galleria Dallas preview is the first of several pop-up experiences planned by the museum highlighting the exhibition in communities across the Metroplex before its October 17 opening.
With an impressive selection of the artist’s paintings and drawings from both public and private collections, Van Gogh and the Olive Groves traces Van Gogh’s evolving stylistic treatment and motivations for depicting the olive groves of Saint-Rémy over a six-month period during his stay as a self-admitted patient at the local asylum. This bold and experimental series, brought together for the first time in this exhibition, reveals Van Gogh’s passionate investigation of the expressive powers of color, line, and form as well as his choice of the olive groves as an evocative subject.
The preview offers families a glimpse into the artistic and educational exploration through select reproductions of Van Gogh’s works from the olive groves series; the originals will be presented in the museum’s exhibition. The display will provide links to online resources allowing people to further explore the exhibition.
“Galleria Dallas has a long history of supporting art and art education,” explains Galleria Dallas Director of Marketing Megan Townsend. “We are thrilled to be able to share a preview of this unique exhibition with our visitors during the month of August and to remind people of the amazing opportunities available at the Dallas Museum of Art.”
As an additional enhancement of this partnership, children participating in the Galleria Dallas PALS Program can receive art kits and coloring books from the Dallas Museum of Art at the center’s Guest Reception desk. A limited additional supply of DMA sponsored coloring books are available upon request.
