    Landmarks: Self-Guided Walking Tour

    Well, it's always an event, isn't it? When you can take your smartphone to access self-guided tours of the outdoor public art sited by UT's award-winning Landmarks program? The answer (as long as the streets and sidewalks aren't dangerous with all this newfangled ice and snow) is a hearty, full-throated YES.

    Austin Bouldering Project: Nicholas Wheat

    "As a member of local climbing crew Team Arete, Wheat refuses to hang his art on any walls he hasn't climbed." Well, he's climbed these ABP walls, and now you can see what his photography looks like when displayed on 'em.

    Butridge Gallery: Keeping House

    Veronica Ceci’s solo show is an inquiry into tactile beauty and societal ugliness in the life of a Queer femme working as a maid, and this is the first time the traveling (since 2017) exhibition will be displayed in Austin, where Ceci has lived since 2004. For this iteration, the artist presents a mix of new work along with early pieces, sharing the roots and current direction of her explorations.

    Cloud Tree: Of the Land

    This exhibition explores clay in its varied states, from mud, to raw, to the fired state that turns clay into ceramics. This exhibition features work by Alejandra Almuelle, in which the acclaimed sculptor uses fresh clay to create an installation formed by hand – to contrast with a wall piece consisting of a series of discs harvested unaltered from local clay sediment. "These two installations with a series of cephalic vessels present the human presence, not as a protagonist of landscape, but as a commentary on the body as place and receptacle of memory, like the land itself."
    Closing reception: Fri., Oct. 1, 5-9pm

    Daniel Johnston: I Live My Broken Dreams

    Davis Gallery: Flora and Fauna

    Right, so we're crazy excited about this show, because 1) we're all about the flora and the fauna; 2) the show includes new pieces by that relatively unsung genius of arcane sculptural work, Steve Brudniak; and 3) this is a group exhibition "focused on the depth and variety of Davis Gallery's family of artists." Yes! And if you don't already know how impressive, how basically aesthetically badass, that diversity of makers is, citizen, then this "Flora and Fauna" gig will be the perfect introduction for you.

    The Blanton: Without Limits: Helen Frankenthaler

    Helen Frankenthaler (1928–2011), a key figure in the development of color-field painting, was a tireless experimenter with color, form, and technique. This exhibition celebrates the generous gift from the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation of ten prints and six proofs that span five decades of the artist’s career.

    The Museum of Natural & Artificial Ephemerata

    This place, ah, it's one of our favorite places in the entire city; and of course they're properly corona-closed. But check 'em out online right now – it's a rich, wonder-filled website – to whet your appetite for when things get back to … uh … are we still calling it "normal," these days?

    Women & Their Work: We Know Who We Are. We Know What We Want.

    This initial exhibition in W&TW's new permanent space examines how the idea of feminism continues to be one that has many definitions, depending on the lens through which it is viewed. Curator Vicki Meek invited artists “whose artwork and lives intrigue me and who all take an unapologetic view of their world, to come together in a collective conversation around issues of feminism and humanism." Featuring art by Nida Bangash, Lauren Cross, Rehab El Sadek, Angela Faz, Pallavi Govindnathan, Lahib Jaddo, Pat Johnson, Lovie Olivia, and Naomi Wanjiku Gakunga.
