    Women & Their Work: The Future Is Behind Us

    Rachel Wolfson Smith focuses our attention on the essential and grounding effect of beauty in nature, portraying constructed, intricate, and imagined landscapes, creating "an antidote to the imbalance many of us experience as we lurch from impulse to impulse in our tech-laden, consumer-driven, modern existence." Yes – an antidote to that, and a paean to the possibilities of graphite wielded by a brilliant hand and mind.
    Opening reception: Sat., Aug. 13, 7-9pm

    Comedy

    Austin Sketch Fest

    Austin Sketch Fest showcases the best scripted comedy from Austin and the wily wilderness beyond. This three-day paroxysm of performative power is produced, booked, and organized by the wacky yet stalwart worthies of ColdTowne Theater. Previous festivals have featured Superego, Reductress Live, Paul F. Tompkins, Master Pancake Theater, Latino Comedy Project, Girls With Brown Hair, My Mans, Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting, Vanessa Gonzalez, Tiny Muscles, Bellevue, Maggie Maye, Mary Jo Pehl, and many more groups from NYC, Chicago, L.A., Seattle, Portland, Dallas, and (of course) Austin. This year's iteration will be a doozie, for sure, making up for previously lost (read: pandemic) time with a slate of live shows to shatter your funny bone to smithereenies.
    Sept. 29-Oct 2. $69 all-fest pass.
