    Akirash Online

    Sure, Austin's Olaniyi Rasheed Akindiya aka AKIRASH has an exhibition at the Carver Museum right now – and the place is closed, of course. But this Lagos-born artist also happens to have one of the most robust websites around, though you'll need a mighty big screen to get the best effect of his huge and colorful mixed-media creations and performance pieces.

    Dimension Gallery: On the Plight of the Primrose

    In the early 1900s, the evening primrose was central to the debate over the cause of evolution and its inherent mutations. In the early days of March 2020, Austin-based sculptor Laura Latimer has collected rubble from local construction sites to provide the foundation for a fanciful, botanical habitat that contemplates how future mutants might survive in the fragmented ecosystems resulting from nonstop urban development.
    Through June 6. free.

    Lora Reynolds Gallery Online

    Rarefied and clever, oblique and brilliant, sometimes blatant as a slap of vivid beauty upside your skull, often just what your rods and cones are craving by way of stimulation. Natalie Frank? The Haas Brothers? Tony Marsh? Yes, and more.

    What, you don't feel like looking at exclusive, worldclass, public and candid shots of international rockstars and music legends of times past and (almost) present? Alrighty, then. But you're totally missing out.

    The Social Distancing Festival

    This is an online community, as playwright and unstoppable force of creative nature Nick Green informs us, and it's been activated to "celebrate and showcase the work of the many artists around the world who have been affected by the need for social distancing that has come about due to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)." It's not Austin-based, this virtual and ongoing festival of all kinds of performance arts, but damned if there aren't a few talented Austinites among the eclectic (and ever-growing) mix.
