Gallery Talk

What’s happening on the Dallas arts scene.

Wintry weather doesn’t last long in Dallas, but staying cooped up in the house for any length of time is no fun. Leave hibernation to the bears and get out to some of the city’s great art galleries this new year. At Holly Johnson Gallery (1411 Dragon St. 214-369-0169), check out Surveillance, an exhibition of recent paintings by Houston artist William Betts. Betts uses images captured on surveillance video as the subjects of his “landscapes.” The paintings are “made up of thousands of individually applied drops of paint that replicate the pixels of the digital images.” (Jan 9–Feb 13. Tue–Sat, 11 am–5 pm) While Betts focuses on the land around us, Ted Kincaid takes to the sky at Marty Walker Gallery (2135 Farrington St. 214-749-0066). In I Do Not Want the Constellations Any Nearer/L.A. Skies, the Dallas artist premieres two recent bodies of work. (Jan 9–Feb 13. Tue–Sat, 11 am–5 pm) At Kittrell/Riffkind Art Glass (5100 Belt Line Rd., Ste. 820. 972-239-7957), more than 60 contemporary glass artists showcase their perfume bottles at the 17th annual Scent Bottle Invitational. (Feb 5–Mar 6. Mon–Sat, 10 am–6 pm) The opening reception is February 5 from 5–8:30 pm. Also make plans to stop by the Goss-Michael Foundation (2500 Cedar Springs Rd. 214-696-0555) for an exhibition of new work by Irish-born artist Michael Craig-Martin. Besides works on canvas and digital animated work, you can also view an installation Craig-Martin painted on the gallery’s walls. (Feb 6–Apr 30. Tue–Fri, 10 am–6 pm; Sat, 11 am–4 pm) And you still have time to visit Bath House Cultural Center (521 E. Lawther Dr. 214-670-8749) for a show celebrating the 30th anniversary of Dallas Arts Revue, an online art journal promoting the city’s visual art and artists. (Through Jan 30. Tue–Sat, noon–6 pm)
