Stained Glass and From Rembrandt To Retablo: Inspiring Art: The Biblical Arts Center hosts a pair of shows that highlight the Dallas institution's permanent collection as well as a bit of Dallas architectural history. From Rembrandt To Retablo: Inspiring Art features slides, woodcut prints, drawings, sculpture, and paintings by a host of American and European artists from throughout the century, including Rembrandt, Joseph Boggs Beale, and Rose Van Vranken. Pieces from the personal collection of Biblical Arts founder Mattie Caruth Byrd are included. Stained Glass is a permanent exhibition of eight stained-glass windows that were saved from the Old City Temple Presbyterian Church (now NorthPark Presbyterian Church) before the original structure was demolished. Byrd purchased the stained glass five years later. The windows are portraits of a series of influential Christian figures, including Paul the Apostle, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and St. Francis of Assisi. The show runs through August 18 at 7500 Park Lane. It's free. Call 691-4661.
