    grayDUCK Gallery: When It Suns, It Pours

    This exhibition of drawing, printmaking, sculpture, and sound installation by Abby Flanagan and Kerry Maguire features artworks that are fragments of day-to-day attempts to reckon with oblivion. The artists use material traces and glitching as a means of calling attention to the realm of the infinitesimal and the unapparent: a singular shell in the ocean, a particle of dust in the atmosphere, a drop in a rainstorm, a blip on the radar.

    Laguna Gloria

    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.
    Thu.-Fri., 9am-noon; Sat.-Sun., 9am-3pm

    Northern-Southern: From, A Return to Outdoors

    This new adventure revisits Northern–Southern’s pandemic outdoor exhibitions, continuing where the exhibition "TOOO" left off, posing the question: What does this wild art mean now, in a New Austin too quick for memory? Artwork will be dispersed, wild, across the city of Austin and beyond, in the semi-public and overlooked spaces. In the gallery will be things from the works — sketches, parts, models — arrayed as a map on the floor and walls. Featuring pieces by Amy Scofield, Ann Armstrong, Ash Duban, Christos Pathiakis, Given McClure, Giampiero Selvaggio, Hannah Spector, Jesse Cline, Leon Alesi, Phillip Niemeyer, Rachael Starbuck, Sterling Allen, and Tammy West. See website for details!
