LANDSCAPES IN FORT WORTH: Landscape paintings can take many forms, from the most literal re-creation of the scene to fantastical interpretations. That wide array of possibilities is currently on display at Artspace111 in Fort Worth. The gallery’s American Landscape: Urban/Rural collects more than 20 local artists who provide their ideas of what landscape really means. DFW.com caught up with a few of the participating artists to talk about their work; the show runs through April 18.
MORE TUT DEALS: Just when you thought the Dallas Museum of Art had used up all King Tut-related puns in marketing the exhibit, one so perfect emerges that it would really be wrong to pass it up. If you’re looking for a different way to honor your mother, the DMA will celebrate Mummies Day weekend with a fancy brunch spread at its Seventeen Seventeeen restaurant. The brunch will also be on for Easter weekend, with discounts available for Tut ticket holders. The museum also has deals to see Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs on Monday afternoons and family four-packs available. For more information on those, visit the museum’s Web site.
QUOTABLE: “There are so many pianists who are such great virtuosos, much better than I am. But there is no better way of getting acquainted with an orchestra than sitting down and making music with them.”
– Conductor and pianist Asher Fisch, who will pull double duty with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra next week. Jeffrey Kahane will turn the double play this weekend. Click here to read more about how they approach their dual roles.
