    Davis Gallery: Earth, Land, Property

    This five-person exhibit features work by Nicholas Baxter, Julie Davis, David Leonard, Garrett Middaugh, and Jason Webb. "This show intends to question our place among nature and how we've chosen to use our land." Right on – an important consideration, even if you're not part of the Dark Mountain movement, even if you don't have three oxgangs of good earth when the haeric star appears. Also, tbh, we're partial to anything painted by that D. Leonard.

    East Austin Studio Tour

    Here's the second and final weekend of the biggest visual-arts event of the Austin year, the annual Big Medium-organized spectacle of creative goodness, with hundreds of private studios and galleries opening their doors all across the sunrise side of our busy city, for your pretty-much-nonstop opps for shopping, shmoozing, interactive presentations, workshops, parties, and then afterparties into the wee hours of each night. Discover new artists. Rekindle old relationships. Get to actually know the urban hub in which you live! Boots on the everlovin' ground, as they say. Check the EAST website for a brimming trove of details, note that your Austin Chronicle has more coverage online and in print as the event draws nigh, and go ahead, citizen: prepare to be a part of the art deep in the slightly arrhythmic heart of Texas.

    Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe

    Penfold Theatre and Doctuh Mistuh Productions reprise their version of Jonathan Christenson's "wildly theatrical musical play that combines haunting music, poetic storytelling, and stunning stagecraft to tell the life story of Edgar Allan Poe." Say, did people actually enjoy this thing the last time it was presented? Oh, we daresay.
    Through Nov. 10. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. $15-30.

    Northern-Southern: 'Scapes

    Joseph Phillips, right? He's an artist and a home-builder. He's one third of that Sodalitas collective from back in the day. His works are arch and whimsical and professionally rendered. He injects wit into architectural design (that way it doesn't get the Pedantic Flu), in ways that delight the eyes and intrigue the mind. His creations depict "built environments of absurd survival luxuries and compartmentalized dreams." And this is his first solo show in six years. Recommended!
    Through Dec. 1

    Theatre

    The Hunchback Variations and An Apology by Doctor John Faustus

    One of our favorite playwrights, because his works are so smart and odd and literary and (often) hilarious, is Mickle Maher. He wrote Capital T’s award-winning hits Song About Himself, The Strangerer, There Is a Happiness That Morning Is, and Spirits to Enforce. Now here's Mark Pickell directing Ken Webster and Robert Fisher in two of the man's shorter plays – we get to see both performances in one fine show, yes – and we're so fucking stoked about this. Especially because we want to know what happens, what the brilliant Maher thinks would happen, when "noted composer Beethoven and noted hunchback Quasimodo embark on creating an impossible sound."
    Through Nov. 17. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $20-30.
