Galleri Urbane, Dallas If you resolved to try more new things in 2014, Galleri Urbane can get you off on the right foot with Art To Go!, which celebrates new work, new artists and a new year. You'll get recent series evolutions from the existing Urbane talent stable, like Irby Pace and his beautiful smoke monster explosions, Kate Carr's impeccably jointed organic materials, and others. You'll also see something I'm excited about, acrylic pieces by Urbane's new artist, Leah Rosenberg from San Francisco. She layers slabs of color into wax-like heaps that resemble all kinds of stuff. Some of her past work has been more focused in realism, showing layered desserts like cakes and terrines. In this show she lets loose, allowing the pigment slices to stack and melt, like the pages of a wax catalog left in a hot car. It runs from 5 to 9 p.m., so hit this 2277 Monitor St. location early.

Cris Worley Fine Arts The night's sexiest show, hands down, is happening at Cris Worley, where new-media artist Adela Andea injects ancient land formations with fresh technology. In Zero Degrees Celsius Andea takes inspiration from transitioning glacier formations, then creates phenomenal arctic-esque sculptures through LEDs, plastics, bulb lights, magnifying lenses and neon. They're wrapped up womb-like and glow brighter than aurora borealis. (No neon polar bears were harmed in the making of this art.) The reception at 1415 Slocum St., #104 runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Visit crisworley.com.

Photographs Do Not Bend Get swept up in a more stylized time when PDNB opens New York City, a group show of iconic black and whites (and a bit of color) mostly from the '50s, '60s and '70s, shot by the talented hands of John Albok, Morris Engel, Harold Feinstein, Ruth Orkin and Neal Slavin. From roller coasters on Coney Island to noir-lit city streets, this all-photography exhibition is loaded with swagger. The reception runs from 5 to 8 p.m. at 1202 Dragon St., Suite 103, so hit it early. Visit pdnbgallery.com.
