    Gallery Lucid: Mindscapes

    Elliot Rogers' first solo show offers "hypnotic spaces and surreal mindscapes which reflect his inner meditative visions and explore the connection between the self and the alien other." It's all trippy AF, in other words – and the closing party will be awash with live music and fancy libations.

    Print Austin 2019

    While we've got the space available in our printed year-end listings section, we wanted to alert you to this terrific annual event that happens throughout the city in the latter half of January and the first half of February.

    It's kind of like that whole EAST or WEST celebration of art that goes on – you know? – except that this program is predicated on printmaking in all its many forms and functions.

    Print Austin is spread among galleries and studios all over town (although the soon-to-be-shuttered Flatbed Press is pretty much Ground Zero), and it boasts numerous workshops and parties in addition to the excellent displays, but that last thing is especially why we're giving it this early huzzah: We know that you don't like to miss out on what's best in this city, and Print Austin isn't just an inside-baseball sort of deal for inkstained artisans and their hardcore fans. No, this is also a wealth of highly accessible graphic goodness that's coming up for the regular citizen to enjoy as well, and we'll have more details here for you as this 2019 business gets under way.

    Jan. 15-Feb. 15

    The Santaland Diaries

    Does it return? Of course it returns – this show is more evergreen than a forest of Christmas trees. David Sedaris' outlandish tale of a (oh, shall we say disgruntled) Macy’s elf jingles to life again in this latest incarnation, with that costumed Crumpet waxing snarktastic on the talent it takes to juggle tinsel, tearful tots, and not-so-sober Santas during what's hailed as the most wonderful time of the year. J. Robert Moore – the bright star of Zach's one-man show Buyer and Cellar a couple years ago – plays Crumpet, and Nat Miller directs, so we reckon this year's holiday-skewering is doubleplusgood to go. But does our reviewer think so, too?
    Through Dec. 30. Wed.-Thu., 7:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 6:30 & 9pm. $40 and up.
