    Full Circle: The Art of Mila Sketch

    "I show the whole through the fine details," says the artist. "I use subliminal manner of drawing and do not know where my own hand will lead me." Yeah, but where it winds up often looks real damned good. And, here, her works are surrounded by craft beer ready for the drinking.

    grayDUCK Gallery: Practical Acts of Perception

    The works presented here by Cande Aguilar, Mauricio Sáenz, and Jorge Purón utilize proportion as a device to augment or degrade a viewer's perspective. "Launching from the design of the IFRAO Standard Scale used to document archaeological remains, each artist departs and interprets the idea of scale in their own terms."

    Lora Reynolds Gallery: The Last Tree on the Planet

    Jason Middlebrook’s new sculptures are black, powder-coated steel, isolating the bold designs he's painted on slabs of wood for the last ten years and making them into three-dimensional line drawings. Also, here's a big bonus: "Haaston Paradise," the latest ceramic and fiber works from those irrepressible Haas Brothers.

    The Contemporary Austin: John Bock + Wangechi Mutu

    Bock's Dead + Juicy exhibition centers around a newly commissioned film that was shot in and around Austin, blending classic Westerns and dark comedy with spooky thriller and horror aesthetics. Mutu offers a new, site-specific edition of Throw, 2017, a painting created by the artist throwing black paper pulp against the wall, resulting in an abstract composition that dries, hardens, and then degrades over time.

    Wally Workman Gallery: Juan Luis Jardi

    Mark our words: You want to see what this talented man can do with oils on big swaths of canvas. Realism? Yes, but magical realism. Understated, quotidian, almost melancholy – except maybe there's been a quiet little rupture between this universe and another slightly different one, hasn't there?
    Through Jan. 27
