    Wally Workman Gallery: Realism

    Oh, this is realism, all right. It's the type of precise realism that underpins the most fantastic, evocative imagery – portions of our world in all its shadow-riddled glory – and it's seen here in a display of stunning new oil paintings by Tracey Harris, James Andrew Smith, Sara Scribner, and Shane Scribner.

    grayDUCK Gallery: Raze

    This is an exhibition by Ariel Wood, centering bodily experiences of installation, deconstruction, extension, alteration, looking, and being seen. Wood makes objects and structures evoking plumbing and drainage, a system of infrastructure that's inherently physical — its fluidity requires the utmost connection between parts — as well as political.
    Through Oct. 1

    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.
