    grayDUCK Gallery: Amze Emmons and Yoonmi Nam

    The wonders of PrintAustin are heralded in the excellent grayDUCK space, with Emmons presenting his records of informal temporary structures and ingenious vernacular designs, with Nam offering images of man-made environments and objects and cut flower arrangements, with a two-person show that complements and contrasts across the common ground of expert printmaking.

    Heartland

    This play was written by Gabriel Jason Dean as a direct response to the true story of the U.S. government’s textbook propaganda contributing to the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan. This play draws a line from the Cold War to the war on terror and is a story of healing, grace, and connection. This play stars Lowell Bartholomee, Kareem Badr, and Kacey Samiee – directed by Rudy Ramirez for the Vortex. For the love of all that might be holy, don't miss it.
    Thu.-Sun., Jan. 17-Feb. 9, 8pm. $15-35.
