DALLAS, TX, October 6, 2014:  Over 450 guests from Dallas, Houston, New York, Italy, and Israel came to the Museum of Biblical Art last evening for the preview reception of “Mysteries, Signs and Wonders: The Art of Barbara Hines.” The event was chaired by Houston philanthropist and art collector Dr. Carolyn Farb, hc, and inaugurated the new National Center for Jewish Art. Mrs. Hines was accompanied by her husband, Gerald D. Hines, founder of the international real estate firm Hines.

Two-thirds of the museum has been devoted to the more than 60 paintings and works on paper by Mrs. Hines whose impressionist, yet contemporary style is inspired by the land of Israel and Judaic themes. Guests enjoyed a sumptuous Renaissance buffet and music by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Quartet. The formal program began with Dr. Farb who said, “The Museum of Biblical Art is one of the treasures in Dallas and the world – a cultural crossroads which embraces tolerance and understanding through art. The paintings of Barbara Hines inspire us to reflect on our own sacred feelings and life for the purpose of a higher reality,” she added.

Scott Peck, Director and Curator of the Museum, held a brief interview with Mrs. Hines, asking what inspires her. “I have studied comparative religions for most of my life,” she replied.  “And I read the Torah. The images come up, and there isn’t enough time to paint all that I want to paint.  It is my connection to the divine.”

“And why in particular do you focus on Israel?” asked Peck.  “It is the cradle of civilization,” replied Mrs. Hines. “Israel is a piece of the redemption. This moment in time is brief and passing, and we will come back to that past that was meant to be and will come again.”

Guests included Laura Hunt, Caroline Rose Hunt and Robert Brackbill, Sr., Robert Edsel, Kirk Kibler, MBA Board Chairman, Diane and D. Harold Byrd, III, Patricia Meadows, Alex Cesaria, Karen and Denis Boulle, Sally and Olin Lancaster, Charles Ward, Ann and Charles Duncan, Brenda and John Duncan, Dr. Charles Key and Linda Stewart, Marie and Mick Seidel, Karen and Michael Bivins, Janet and Jeff Beck, Veronique and Hylton Jonas, Wendy and Jeff Hines, as well as fashion icon, Jan Strimple.

Peck announced that an audio tour with Mrs. Hines will be coming soon, followed by a movie and a catalog in the spring.  The exhibition will open to the public on October 7 and be on display through August of 2015. Selected paintings are for sale, with proceeds going to the Museum and the Dallas Chabads. Call the museum for additional details or private tours at 214-368-4622.

 

ABOUT THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR JEWISH ART

“Mysteries, Signs and Wonders” is the inaugural exhibition for the new National Center for Jewish Art at the Museum of Biblical Art. The new center will house a special collection by Jewish and Israeli artists as well as historical and religious artifacts and ceremonial items for study, with the goal of bringing  contemporary Israeli and Jewish art to a broader audience.  

Educational programs such as field trips, educational movies, educational audio tours, exhibit catalogs and art camps, will accompany future exhibitions in order to engage school students, youth of all ages and, particularly, low-income schools. Outreach will be made specifically to Jewish Day Schools, area Synagogue educational programs, and schools and classes, as well students from private and home-school programs.

ABOUT BARBARA HINES

Barbara Hines is an international artist based in Texas, with studios in multiple cities. The land of Israel inspires her impressionist, yet contemporary, canvases in which she incorporates actual soil, gold dust and silver dust from Israel. She is deeply committed to sharing the beauty of Israel and to the use of art as a way to bring understanding and peace into the world—values sorely needed in light of current-day global tensions.

“Hines’ paintings are breathtaking and intensely spiritual. They powerfully communicate the beauty of Israel and the Holy Land,” said Peck.

Barbara Hines is represented by Meredith Long & Company in Houston. Mrs. Hines and her husband, Gerald D. Hines, founder of the international real estate firm Hines, are significant philanthropists and humanitarians. They have helped students worldwide as well as architects, artists, and musicians.

Barbara Hines donates 100 percent of her proceeds from art sales to charitable causes. Certain works of art in the Museum of Biblical Art show will be available for sale with the proceeds being donated equally to the museum and to Chabads of Dallas.

ABOUT THE MUSEUM OF BIBLICAL ART

The Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas is unlike any museum in the world.  It has a simple mission:  to display art with a Biblical theme.  It is one of the few museums in the country that is devoted to Biblical themes.  It was established in 1967 and named the Museum of Biblical Art in 1999.  Nothing of its size exists in the United States, making it a treasure trove for art enthusiasts. Diverse types of art are exhibited including bronze sculpture installations, drawings, fine prints, and oil paintings. Specialized galleries have been created for Biblical Archaeology, Jewish Art, Religious Architecture, Israeli Art, African American Art and Hispanic Art.

The Museum is a cultural crossroads, utilizing art for tolerance and understanding reflected in the various archaeological exhibits and decorative art from Israel and the Holy Land.  The MBA's vision encompasses the classical arts with a call to beauty which emphasizes the Biblical figurative art illustrating the narratives of the Bible, and a call to the study of classical Greco-Roman art, archaeology and architecture.

Museum featured artists Include:  John Singer Sargent, Marc Chagall, Jacques Lipchitz, Ben Shahn, Paolo Veronese, Francesco Guardi, Agam, Kathe Köllwitz, Albert Pinkham Ryder, Emil Nolde, James Tissot, Oskar Kokoschka, Bernard Buffet, Andy Warhol, Everett Shinn, John Marin, and many more.
