‘Coastlines’ exhibits continues at DMA

Sound and vision meet at innovative ‘Coastlines’ exhibit Dallas Museum of Art Broken into five galleries, each with its own theme — “Coastal Labor, Seaside Leisure,” “The Bather: Myth and Modernity,” “From the Particular to the Universal” — “Coastlines” includes works by Edward Hopper, John Marin and Catherine Opie. The art itself ranges from your usual landscapes to abstract paintings to modern photography, but all are grouped in a nice flow that give the themes weightiness, not pretension. What makes the exhibit exciting though is the sound installation accompanying the galleries. Dufour and students from the University of Texas—Dallas’ Arts and Technology Program (along with students from the France’s Universite du Sud Toulon-Var) have added sound to an art exhibit that punctuates each gallery’s theme. This collaboration is a first for the DMA. Read the entire review here. DEETS: Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 N. Harwood Road. Through Aug. 22. $10....

Cassie speaks her dream to the universe Hey, y’all! How the F is everybody doing? Someone recently told me that if you want something in life, you have to speak it into existence. Let’s say you want a boyfriend. You need to say out loud what you want so the universe can hear you and your wish has more of a chance to come true. I don’t believe that there is some magic Universe Genie, just sitting around listening for wishes, but what do I know? I do believe in positive thinking so I figured I’d give it a...

Coast to coast to coast

By RICH LOPEZ | Staff Writer lopez@dallasvoice.com Dallas Museum of Art brings surprising innovation to new Coastlines exhibit ‘Duck Island’ by Childe Hassam and ‘Sunbather on the Seine’ by Frank Welch represent the diversity of work in DMA’s ‘Coastlines’ exhibit. In Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea, the Dallas Museum of Art’s newest exhibit displays work of contemporary artists using coastal images as their inspiration. OK, yes, maybe it sounds a little meh. "Coastal art" probably evokes images of generic paintings you pick up at Pier 1 suitable for framing. But thanks to curator Heather MacDonald and UTD sound design professor Frank Dufour, the DMA has created something innovative and spectacular. Broken into five galleries, each with its own theme — "Coastal Labor, Seaside Leisure," "The Bather: Myth and Modernity," "From the Particular to the Universal" — the exhibit includes works by Edward Hopper, John Marin and Catherine Opie. The art itself ranges from your usual landscapes to abstract paintings to modern photography, but all are grouped in a nice flow that give the themes weightiness, not pretension. What makes the exhibit exciting though is the sound installation accompanying the galleries.

Bulg-ing out all over

By JON FAIRBANKS | Contributing Travel Writer GayTravel.com Tolerant and lovely, Bulgaria makes Eastern Europe surprisingly gay-friendly MOUNTAIN HIGH | Bulgaria offers both stunning mountain vistas and beautiful coastlines. "You know, Bulgarians are the first European people in the world," an older gentleman tells me just minutes after stepping off of my bus. "We also invented the saddle and horseback riding." These moments are telling of the national pride and history this once mighty and now re-emerging Eastern European nation possesses. Nowhere is that past more apparent than in the country’s bustling capital Sofia, which stands as one of the most religiously tolerant cities in the world — a mosque, synagogue, evangelical church and Orthodox cathedral have co-existed for hundreds of years within 100 yards of each other. Charming lanes, a bustling market culture and lovely parks make this city the perfect jumping off point for a Bulgarian adventure. The gay scene is booming as well. With five gay bars and one world-class dance club, there is no shortage of gay nightlife. Clustered near Place Pozitano, this part of the city may very well be Eastern Europe’s first real gayborhood. Whether you’re after ancient relics, cool cafes or an all-night party, Sofia has got it all. THE OLD AND THE NEW | Plovdiv boasts some great Roman Empire relics, but is also a casual and friendly mountain town with...
