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, 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.
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.
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.
