    Austin Design Week

    Design? You know: Interior, exterior. The place, perhaps even abstractly, where the utilitarian and/or promotional is infused with beauty, with whatever it takes to please or thrill the eye and mind. Functional art, in other words: More often redolent of technical skill than what's created when some schmuck with too much free time spews their feelings onto a canvas or whatever. Design, you savvy? The sort of visual and physical arrangements that Philippe Starck and Paula Scher and Zaha Hadid and Norman Bel Geddes and Jennymarie Jemison and Karim Rashid, say, have brought the world? Yes, and here's an entire week full of opportunities to explore the best of design in the ATX. [Note: The explorations include Pentagram, so you know it's legit.] See website for details.

    Davis Gallery: The Afterlife of Artifacts

    We could probably just mention that this exhibition (featuring a quintet of assemblage artists) contains work by Steve Brudniak and watch the smarter crowds gather for some deep gawking … but we wouldn't want to diss the talented likes of Barbara Irwin, John Sager, Larry Seaman, and Steve Wiman – whose complex three-dimensional creations are also well worthy of your time.
