    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.

    Camiba Art: Signs

    Currently open by reservation only, yes, but you should have no reservations about seeing this stunning exhibition by Dallas native Lee Albert Hill. You want an eyeful of big, bright abstractions via acrylics on canvas over board, handwrought yet almost machinelike in their meticulous design and execution? You probably do, especially in this case. Because it's like … um … like if someone hired Mike Hinge and Bill Sienkewicz to show how well tangrams could be used to illustrate subatomic events from CERN's bubble chamber – and then threw a fistful of chaos shards at the collaboration's results. The accompanying image here is one miniaturized example; imagine seeing a roomful of such intricacies at full size. Hell, imagine scheduling a private viewing of this show with gallerist Troy Campa: That's some solid pandemic diversion right there, tell you what. (And your man Brenner rhapsodizes a bit further about it in this review.)
    Through July 11

    grayDUCK Gallery: Point of Origin

    That's right! So make an appointment to check out this inventive array of creative work. (Note: Only five people allowed per appointment; no hugging, kissing, high-fiving, or even fist-bumping the gallerist.) But, look: Sarah Sudhoff's "Point of Origin" 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.
    Through July 12. Thu.-Sat., noon-6pm; Sun., noon-5pm

    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.

    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?
