Music And/Or Art
Local visionaries inaugurate their own gallery

By Sam Machkovech

If you have ever found yourself bored with Dallas arts, then you've obviously never seen the work of local musicians and artists Paul Slocum and Lauren Gray. Whether turning ancient computers and videogame systems into musical instruments while performing as the band Tree Wave or helming the print(f) digital arts series, this hometown duo has little trouble turning its fascination with technology and the archaic into compelling, artistic statements about society. Truly, this fascination is far-reaching—so much so that Slocum and Gray have opened their own art space, the And/Or Gallery, 4221 Bryan St., Suite B. Thankfully, the duo knows better than to glorify its own material in the space, instead choosing to spotlight two out-of-town artists for the gallery's debut exhibit. New York's Tom Moody, a former local who was once involved with the MAC, will present bizarre print media creations that look like the DNA of Oompa Loompas, and former Southside on Lamar resident artist Saskia Jorda will have minimalist found-item sculptures on display. In addition, video jockey Jeremy Johnson will be on hand to pump out pixelated software art on the And/Or walls. The gallery opens at 6 p.m. Entry is free. Call 214-824-2442. Starting Jan. 28 Saturdays. Continues through Feb. 28
