  • The Blanton Museum: The Brothers Grimm

    Here the Blanton invites us to explore the "unsanitized" version of those ancient and grisly tales compiled by the legendary Brothers once upon a time, and this exhibition is predicated on the gorgeous and eerie and, we reckon, unforgettable gouache and pastel drawings by New York-based Austin native Natalie Frank. The artist captures a phantasmagoria of narratives in the 40-plus images on display in the soaring gallery, and the show is accompanied by Frank's new book of Grimmstory illustrations, a book that was designed by – be still, our calligraphiliac hearts!Marian Bantjes. Recommended? Yes, even if some mad-eyed crone with spiders in her hair warns you to stay away. Be brave, citizen! Be valiant and true, and seek this gathering of vivid treasures within the Blanton! Through Nov. 15
