    Dimension Gallery: About Us

    Shea Little? Oh, just the guy who co-founded Bolm Studios, Big Medium, the East Austin Studio Tour, the West Austin Studio Tour, the Texas Biennial, and Cantanker magazine, that's all. Just one-third of the legendary Sodalitas trio of artists. Just a tall local feller with a complex creative agenda. Just taking a little break (get it? a Little break?) from the relentless moving-and-shaking to present his first solo exhibition.
    Through Sept. 30

    Special Screenings

    Henry IV

    Shakespeare? Of course. But this kingly classic is directed by Beth Burns for the Hidden Room, is based on a new adaptation by Dr. Ralph Alan Cohen, and features a cast worth shouting about infused with a rowdy glam-rock aesthetic. Which means that this ain't your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather's Henry IV, this is your chance to see the Bard's work presented with incomparable theatrical power and style. Bonus: live music from Shoulders' Todd Kassens.
    Through Oct. 1. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. $15-30.  
    York Rite Masonic Hall, 311 W. Seventh.

    Classical Music

    line upon line percussion: Left

    The boundary-breaking trio begins a new season with this concert of work by four composers – Rick Burkhardt, Jason Federmeyer, Michelle Lou, and Laura Steenberge – who earned their doctorates in the Golden State. Experience the Big Medium Gallery as you never have before, as the three pioneers unleash a flow, a barrage, a complex manifestation of sounds that only the sonically savant can imagine.
    Sept. 29-Oct. 1. Fri.-Sun., 8pm. $15.

    Texas Biennial

    The central feature of this Big Medium event is a group survey exhibition curated from a statewide open call: All artists living and working in the state, as well as those within 10 miles of any border, were eligible to enter, with the final line-up for display decided by Leslie Moody Castro. Definitive, we reckon. Also stunning – and not to be missed.
