Through May 15 Naudline Pierre: What Could Be Has Not Yet Appeared. The DMA presents the first solo museum exhibition of works by Naudline Pierre, whose vividly hued paintings portray opaque, otherworldly narratives through depictions of supernatural beings entangled in complex scenes of struggle and intimacy. Rearticulating historical tenets of religious painting, Pierre expresses the spiritual experience of transcendence through the means of an alter-ego figure who recurs throughout her works. This exhibition, which will feature the debut of five newly created paintings and the DMA's recent acquisition Lest You Fall, will consider the possibilities of speculation and fantasy in offering love, care, and routes for escape. The DMA is at 1717 N. Harwood St. in the Dallas Arts District. Information: www.dma.org.

Feb. 20-June 12 Murillo: Picturing the Prodigal Son. During the 1660s, Sevillian artist Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617–1682) set out to paint the biblical parable of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11–32). Many artists tackling this subject focus on the story's conclusion - that is, the prodigal son's return from squandering his inheritance to be welcomed by his father's forgiveness rather than his wrath. Murillo's depiction, however, draws out the drama into a narrative cycle of six large canvases. Indeed, Murillo's paintings represent the first time a Spanish artist painted the story in serial form. In 2022, all six canvases will travel to the United States for the first time to be featured at the Meadows Museum, their only venue in this country. The Meadows Museum is located at 5900 Bishop Blvd. on the SMU campus. Information: meadowsmuseumdallas.org.
