In his latest batch of inventive mixed-media sculptures, Jerry Dodd explores the "functional and esthetic qualities" of tools, utilitarian objects and the like by incorporating things like pitchfork tines, hooks and rototiller blades into the context of his welded steel sculptures. Then, Dodd lavishly paints many of the components in vibrant, eye-grabbing colors. See this collection, Tools of the Trade: Selected Sculptures by Jerry Dodd, at the Bath House Cultural Center, 521 E. Lawther Road, Tuesday through January 22, with gallery hours from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Admission is free. Call 214-670-8749 or visit
