Fronterafest's all over for another year, people, except for this Short Fringe: Best of the Fest part –and I'm glad to tell you that any night of this line-up is worth seeing, because you'll laugh, you might cry, you will be extremely fucking entertained at all times. [Full disclosure: I helped decide which shows got to be presented again this week.] And "Austin's Best Monologist" – it's true! – Steven Tomlinson debuts his new "How to Use Evernote" piece in the Wild Card Bill. You'd best hurry, though, because these nights (and one matinee) of no-fail theatrical enjoyment are selling out so fast you'd think they were Tim Doyle prints or something! See website for full schedule details. Wed.-Sat., Feb. 14-16, 8pm.
New paintings by Greta Olivas. Through Feb. 3. 7050 Village Center,
This second annual exhibition explores the many methods and styles of drawing through the work of 40 Austin artists. From the abstract to the hyperreal, with surfaces manipulated by pencil, marker, ink, charcoal, pastel, etching, burning, and puncturing. Recommended like wow: This show shouldn't be missed. Through Feb. 16. Wed. & Sat., noon-5pm.
