ALONG THE WATER’S EDGE: The Dallas Museum of Art has announced that it will stage “Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea” beginning April 25. The exhibition explores, “how modern and contemporary artists — from Childe Hassam and Edward Hopper to Willem De Kooning, Gerhard Richter and Catherine Opie — have drawn upon coastal landscapes as a source of inspiration, metaphor and mystery in their work,” according to the news release. The museum is teaming up again with the University of Texas at Dallas to provide soundscapes for the show. If you missed those this summer, here’s my story about their last collaboration. “Coastlines” will run alongside the similarly themed “The Lens of Impressionism: Photography and Painting Along the Normandy Coast, 1850-1874.”
