Abandoned houses are always creepy, but there's nothing more disconcerting than driving by your old childhood abode and seeing a stuccoed monstrosity, an empty lot, or the crumbling squalor of a meth lab. The punch in the gut that follows is unexpectedly severe, even if the change is as innocuous as a hideous new paint job. Local photographer Aaron Abbott explores the gap between what we remember as home and the physical reality that remains in his current show, which features large-scale diptychs of several structures in Phoenix, Tucson, and Globe that can only resemble home in the memories of those who once lived in them.
Fridays, 5-9 p.m.; Saturdays, 1-5 p.m. Starts: Jan. 11. Continues through Jan. 26, 2008
