And, if you know their work at all, you know this is a great opportunity to pick up a piece or two that you've long coveted. Note: Wear a mask, por favor.

    This local treasure of a venue, run by those Contemporary Austin folks who also bring us the Jones Center shows Downtown, is all about the outdoors – which is perfect for these trickily navigated times of ours, n'est-ce pas? Recommended: Stop by and breathe in the air, enjoy the lawns and gardens and the many examples of world-class sculpture arrayed across the property, and (as Frankie used to say) r-e-l-a-x.

    Lydia Street Gallery: David Amdur Memorial Exhibition

    David Amdur was a staple of the Austin art community for much of his life, from his days at UT, to Amdur Gallery in downtown Austin, to the dream home that he designed and built. Drawing, painting, printmaking, music posters, wood furniture, stone sculpture: He was a master of so many forms. This newest exhibition at Lydia Street Gallery, "A Light In the Wood," celebrates the man's life and legacy.

    The Blanton Museum: Invisibilia

    This is the first retrospective of Colombian artist Oscar Muñoz's work in the United States. The exhibition includes 40 exemplary works from his most evocative series created between the 1970s and today, wherein the artist has "turned photographic processes inside out to underscore the intrinsic fragility and transient nature of the image," revealing "how the act of opening the aperture to light instantaneously transforms the present into the past and life into memory."
