    GrayDUCK Gallery: Capirotada

    Capirotada is a delicious Mexican bread pudding concocted from a wide variety of nuts and fruits embedded within syrup-soaked bread. In a similar vein, this new show – curated by Los Outsiders – collects a group of artists revealing dialogues about self-reflection, meditation, and communing with nature through art. A fine array of works by Rachel Comminos, Julie DeVries, Soomin Jung, Paloma Mayorga, and Ryan Runcie bridge the ideas of the individual in search of solace in a natural world.
    Through Nov. 1

    Umlauf Sculpture Garden

    The Umlauf reopens its famed Garden to the general public. There won’t be any performances going on yet, as occasionally delighted crowds in the Before Times, but there will be all those expertly wrought sculptures, the bronze or stone cynosures from Charles Umlauf and others anchoring sight among the bright gardenscapes and tree-towered paths: Perfect for a strolling, fresh-air respite from yet another screenful of pixels in your all-too-familiar abode.: Note: The usual safety measures will be in effect: A limit of 30 visitors in the garden at a time; a one-way marked path to follow; masks and social distancing strongly encouraged; etc. (You know the routine: You’re an old hand at this pandemic shit by now, right?) Also, know that the Umlauf’s private-event rentals will resume with limited capacity set by local and state guidelines – and its summer camp program will proceed with those restrictions in mind, too.: See the museum’s website for details and to schedule an appointment.
    Tue.-Fri., 10am-4pm; Sat.-Sun., 11am-4pm

    Virtual Hideout: Maestro

    This is an all-improvised battle royal, featuring the most ornery cusses in the scene doing their damnedest to emerge victorious from a mindwarping multiplayer fray. Imagine: A screen crowded with Zoomers, competing in short improv games and wild-ass gambits to be crowned the one and only Maestro for the week. Sound good? Yeah – we like it, too.
