    Davis Gallery: Elements: Rock, Steel, Felt, Wax

    We're getting goosebumps just writing this blurb, that's how gorgeous the work in the Davis Gallery's "Elements" exhibition is. Because the artists whose work is displayed here, each of them have created pieces representing one of the four materials noted in the show's title. And those artists are Giota Vorgia, Randall Reid, Barbara Attwell, and Annie Darling. And, Austinite, if you don't already know what those four names herald in the way of skill, mastery, and sublime visual impact of production … well, we envy you the introduction to this quartet of artmakers.
    Through Oct. 7
