Celebrate A New Year of Dallas Art On Saturday Night. Here's Who's Showing What.

Dallas, this Saturday night we experience an embarrassment of riches as nearly every gallery in town opens a new, post-holiday show. From Expo Park to Uptown and throughout the Design District, there are exhibitions that deserve your attention, and you should visit them during their runs. Some, like the MAC, are more time-sensitive and should be viewed during the opening so you can get those little extras (there's a live orchestral accompaniment to short films, and artist talks). Others are just intriguing enough to make you sprint over, like the glacier-inspired LED sculptures at Cris Worley's gallery. And still others, like Travis LaMothe's show at the Reading Room, come with the promise of a dick joke, so you're not passing that up either.

You get what I'm saying here: You're screwed. You've got to navigate the whole city in about three hours. Here's the rundown on what's happening and where, along with the reception times.
