    Lady Parts

    Ah, now here's "an alternative dimension of guts and glam and an experimental encapsulation of self-discovery, connection, and exploration of the beauty and horrors of womanhood." This art gallery and interactive exhibition – curated by Loria Mendoza of Red Light Lit and Lars Matilda of Bug Eyed Betty – is equal parts visual art from Austin artists, interactive experiences, and a night of performances by local legends in drag, burlesque, music, fashion, and more.
    Sat., May 27, 7pm. $20-25.

    Lora Reynolds Gallery: Snails In Comparison

    The Lora Reynolds gallery inaugurates its brand new space(!) with this whimsical and wonderful show by those irrepressible Haas Brothers. Observe as fraternal twins Niki and Simon Haas unveil a group of sculptures of big, bizarre snails: their first endeavors in combining a material new to their practice (blown glass, which constitutes the gastropod's soft bodies) with another medium they've known longer than any other: the snails' shells are hand-carved marble.
