    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.

    ICOSA's Window Dressing VI: Nom Ceramics

    Nyaaaah, Covid-19, it's not all about you all the time: ICOSA has been running this series of tiny exhibitions in its front window at Canopy for a while now – whenever the gallery's been closed for installation. So this isn't any makeshift plague-time alternative here; this is just business as usual. Except that – no disrespect to the previous window shows – this display of work by Scott Proctor and Rebeca Milton of Nom Ceramics is much too beautiful to be called "business as usual.": Either hand-built or thrown, Nom's ceramic forms are created to interact with the patterns and line-work in the creators' drawings, the glazed surfaces limned in reference to nostalgic imagery, patterns, and color schemes, reflecting Proctor and Milton's interest in traditional ceramic practices, historical form, and experimental contemporary technique.: And, boy howdy, it'll sure be nice to stroll through Canopy for an eyeful of this delicate industry, won't it?
    Through June 8

    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.

    testsite: How a House Works

    How does a house work? The folks at Fluent-Collaborative presented such a compelling answer from artists Andy Coolquitt and Alix Browne that, when the coronavirus shutdown went into effect, they turned the exhibition into a website of its own. So now you can click over for a visit, and – hey, who's answering the questions here?
