Little Dots

I vividly remember the first time I used low-res photos off the Internet for a print project in college, which turned out to be a pixelated disaster. Photographer Paul Abbott employs a neat excuse for the pixelation in his photos, however--he wants them to look that way. "Pixelation is a carry-over from my years of working as a physicist," he says. As in, those blurry dots are supposed to remind you of sub-atomic particles, dude. His newest exhibit, Other Places, collects several such pieces and runs through February 14 at Craighead-Green Gallery, 1011 Dragon St. Connie Connally's Coastlines (a collection of landscape paintings) and Philips Shore's Offerings (a collection of sculpture examining the relationship between man and nature) also hang for the duration. Craighead-Green is open from 12 to 5 p.m. Mondays, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Call 214-855-0779 or visit
Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Mondays, 12-5 p.m.; Tuesdays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Starts: Jan. 10. Continues through Feb. 14, 2009
