    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.

    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.

    grayDUCK Gallery Online: Point of Origin

    Sarah Sudhoff's experimental exhibition takes cues from the connections between sound and human emotion, here realized with suspended sculptures, sound installation, and debossed wall works that draw upon the artist's personal observations, cartography, and the mechanics of helicopters – especially those copters involved in the nearly 300 flights completed in just one month for Houston's Memorial Hermann Health System. Take a virtual tour here.
