For his latest work, John Pomara found himself interested in the way digital technology simultaneously connects us and disconnects us. Everyone has that friend who's in constant communication with everyone except the people in front of him. These communicative “visual distractions” were the impetus for his new abstract works that debut at the Barry Whistler Gallery (2909-B Canton St.) at 6 p.m. Saturday. See Digital-Distraction during the opening reception or through November 29. More information at barrywhistlergallery.com.
Sat., Oct. 18, 6 p.m.; Wednesdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Oct. 18. Continues through Nov. 29, 2014
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
