American Dirt
Artists using found objects, or trash, in their work is old hat, but that’s not what photographer Jeff Ferrell does. Nope, he documents his dumpster dives photographically. This weekend, the Reading Room (3715 Parry Ave.) teams up with Gavin Morrison and Fraser Stables/Atopia Projects to present American Dirt, a collection of photographs by Ferrell that dig into the excessive waste created by our consumer culture. The opening reception for the exhibition is from 6-8 p.m. Saturday. More at readingroomdallas.blogspot.com.

Vicki Meek: Paradise/Hell
Have you ever heard someone say, "Slavery wasn't all that bad." In her latest exhibition, opening at The Cliff Gallery at Mountain View College, artist Vicki Meek digs into this idea with a series of contemporary photographs taken in Costa Rica, presenting them alongside historical images to suggest a concurrent Paradise/Hell.  The opening reception for the show will take place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday. The exhibition remains on display through March 25.

Devil's in the Detail
Sometimes works of art require a second look. A magnified examination of exactly how many strokes of paint are layered in intricate patterns, or a sculpture's small details — that's where they say the devil lives. For The Public Trust's next exhibition, gallerist Brian Gibb brings together a grouping of work focused on detail. See the U.S. debut of emerging Russian sculptor Daria Lapto, alongside Dallas-based artists Arthur Peña and Travis LaMothe, and Brooklyn-based Scott Albrecht. The opening exhibition will be from 6-9 p.m. Saturday.

Michele Mirisola: Of One's Own
Virgina Woolf once postulated that if Shakespeare's sister had a room of her own, she also would've been a great writer. In her recent paintings, Brooklyn-based painter Michele Mirisola explores the idea of what comprises a room, and the unconscious reactions to the space we inhabit. The work will be on display at Beefhaus (833 Exposition Ave.) in an opening reception from 7-10 p.m. Saturday.

Mensura: Measuring the World, Angelika J. Trojnarski
For her latest exhibition at CentralTrak (800 Exposition Ave.), painter Angelika J. Trojnarksi considers the relationship between art and science, by referring to historical scientific discoveries of the 18th and 19th centuries, which led to contemporary industrial development. To Trojnarksi's mind, there is a clear relationship between the details and sensitivity in both pursuits. See the work in an opening reception from 8-10 p.m. Saturday.
