Dallas photographer Paul Greenberg has chronicled urban life through his black-and-white panoramic images for the past 30 years. His new exhibit, Immigrant Entrepreneurs, is a collection of photographs featuring Dallas-based business owners who came from Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East to pursue the American Dream. Each entrepreneur is shown in two portraits one at his workplace and one at home, allowing viewers to compare the nine-to-five lives of these men and women with their home lives. In one pair, we see a Korean woman surrounded by spools of thread and sewing machines at her cluttered tailor shop; at home, shes surrounded by her extended family, and the room has stark decor. In another, we see a man in an industrial kitchen filled with huge mixing machines and racks of baked goods; at home, hes with his wife in a room filled with art and furniture that reflects his Vietnamese heritage. Get a glimpse of these double lives from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Through June 29. Galveston Arts Center, 2127 Strand in Galveston.

Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: May 24. Continues through June 29, 2008
