It's not so much a hangover cure; this time "Hair of the Dog" refers to animal photography by Helen Altman, which is then thermal transferred onto everyday textiles like baby blankets, handkerchiefs and quilts. Her oeuvre also includes several freaky-looking plaster arm/hand sculptures topped with open-jawed dog heads and snakes, torch drawings of wildlife, wall-mounted bird sculptures crafted from wire, and a whimsical speckled egg tableau nestled in a cigar box. Altman, who lives in Fort Worth, builds on earlier works that demonstrate the natural beauty of flora and fauna. Open 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. May 20 through June 24. Moody Gallery, 2815 Colquitt. For information, call 713-526-9911 or visit moodygallery.com. Free.
