    Stuart Wallace: Future Artifacts of Sprawl and Sting

    Yes, this might take a little while to get to, as Georgetown is kinda up there, isn't it? But never mind that, because the end of the world will also take a while to reach, yet that's where we're all eventually headed.

    And a local artist – Stuart Wallace – has gotten there first, is the idea here, and he's brought back an array of artifacts that are as eerie as they are graceful. I can't properly express the odd and sublime aesthetics of what the man's wrought, but I can tell you that the pieces often include abandoned wasps' nests and ball moss and photos and rope, expertly arranged, and they're often framed in wood that Wallace has carefully charred with a flame thrower.

    Real talk: There's already too much to see in Austin, already too much for a listings editor to cover; WTF would make me take the time to promote this show up at the Georgetown Public Library? Answer: The sheer, stunning beauty of this work.

    Go ahead, make a whole afternoon of it, check out Wallace's "Future Artifacts" and that Atelier Dojo faculty exhibition at the Georgetown Art Center while you're moseying around, maybe stop for an exquisite meal at Jack Gilmore's Salt Traders Coastal Cooking on the way there or back. But FFS don't miss this show.
