Arts

  • Davis Gallery: No Place Like Home

    This spring showcase features gallery artists working in painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media collage, and prints – and these artists are, as ever, nonpareil. Sam Yeates, Randall Reid, Christopher St. Leger, Lisa Beaman, Faustinus Deraet, Chun Hui Pak, and more. This diverse array of work is highly recommended. Through May 25.

    Davis Gallery, 837 W. 12th, 512/477-4929

  • Wally Workman Gallery: Book of Etiquette

    Tracey Harris uses thin layers of oil paint to create luminous hyper-real images, her creations juxtaposing common objects against classically rendered nudes and uncommon phrases on seemingly academic book spines. We're a bit enamored of this whole thing, and recommend it highly. Through March 30.
