    Raw Paw Gallery: Notes From a Windowless Room

    "These paintings," says Nadia Waheed, "are an effort to form a bridge between my Pakistani heritage and my westernization, primarily by exploring the brown female nude." Several large works by Waheed adorn the delightful Raw Paw space over there in the Yard on St. Elmo, and – tell you what – if every creative "effort" were as well-wrought and lovely to behold as these paintings, the whole world would be a better place to have eyes in.

    A Doll's House, Part 2

    Alrighty, then! FronteraFest's over, Ken Webster's been making theatre in Austin for 40 years, and now here's the latest from Hyde Park Theatre: It's Lucas Hnath's highly modern sequel to Henrik Ibsen's classic, in which Nora must return 15 years after her dramatic exit to face all she left behind. This long-awaited continuation is directed by that award-winning Webster and features Katherine Catmull, Tom Green, Sarah Chong Harmer, and Cyndi Williams.
    Thu.-Sat., Feb. 28-March 30, 8pm. $23-27 (pay what you can, Thursdays).

    Dimension Gallery: SWAARMS

    This new body of work by Suzanne Wyss at Dimension is a protean body, a visual representation of working together to create something beautiful and bigger than the self, driven by an array of thread-growth machines that evolve their own structures, adding to and transforming the site all the way until the exhibition ends. (Admit it: You've been wondering what the artist would do next, ever since you saw the dank honey she visited upon Facebook Austin.) Did you catch the opening reception at this intimate venue, where Wyss' mechanisms were just beginning their complex industry? Come back soon and witness the textile metamorphosis as it nears completion.

    Umlauf Sculpture Garden: With Out, With In

    If you're standing at the crossroads of wood and sculpture, one of the talented giants you'll see landmarking that intersection will be James Surls. If you're at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum for this new show, you'll be amazed by more than 30 of that maestro's works – many of his iconic, surrealistic wooden creations as well as a few of his giant steel and bronze structures.
