Mr. Light-and-Space


Few contemporary artists can conjure a sleight of hand as well as Tom Orr. This Dallas-based, internationally exhibited sculptor is also adept at achieving maximum effects with an economy of means. In his material arsenal? Surprisingly prosaic, often industrial media: metal, wood, mirrors, abandoned chairs, sheets of plastic and even greenhouse glazing. His work was seen last fall in "Performance/Art" alongside frequent collaborator/wife Frances Bagley at the Dallas Museum of Art, and he%26#8217;s among the talents highlighted in this month's release of the lavish volume Texas Artists Today. Now Orr stars front and center in Marty Walker Gallery's autumn lineup, where his evocatively titled exhibit "Ghost Stories" rolls out new takes on time, illusion, light, space and architecture (through November 13).
