If you’ve ever taken pictures at a party, you’ve most likely had a few blurry shots, especially what should have been the cool dancing pics. Ansen Seale’s digital slit-scan camera takes long exposure photographs and turns this state of affairs on its head: static objects are rendered as a blur but movement is captured as a series of clear images. We don’t pretend to understand how it happens, but the results are sublime. Betsy Dudley’s wood sculptures describe complex geometries and architecture that echo human preoccupation rather than organic shapes, mapping social structures, dreams, and hierarchies of value. In two and three dimensions, this exhibition is about time. Free, 5:30-7:30pm Thursday, Parchman Stremmel Gallery, 110 W Olmos, (210) 824-8990, psgart.com. Through May 30.
