    Cloud Tree Studio: We Talk to Colors

    Rachel Koper is the curator of this group show of paintings. "I just wanted to fill the space with color and paintings," she tells us. "It's a salon-style hanging of pieces with gestural realism and some abstracts, just this colorful mix of oil and acrylic artworks." Sure, and since the group of artists includes Chris Chappell, John Cobb, Heyd Fontenot(!), Yamin Li, Andrea Munoz Martinez, John Mulvany, Johari Palacio, Charles Randolph, and Koper herself – well, we're excited to see this stuff. Check the website to make your appointment soon!

    Dimension Gallery: Polarity

    This latest installation by Colin McIntyre balances subtle extremes of light and sound, featuring a constructed setting that's a rhomboid chamber, painted with extreme matte black "that eats light like a two-dimensional black hole." Into this Stygian vault the sculptor has engineered neon light and sound that plays through cymatic devices to oscillate fluids at the frequency of a specific tone – and those cymatic displays are the only element in the space reflecting light from the minimal neon installation. Note: This is an in-person event inside the gallery, for one to two people at a time, with a strict face mask and social distancing policy.
    Through Feb. 28

    Northern-Southern: Baton

    You know, right, that Northern-Southern's had a lot going on in this pandemic? In addition to the various artworks lying in wait throughout the city of Austin via "Left In Leaves" and "Where Is Here" … in addition to virtually hosting the weekly brilliances of first Laura Lit and now Drew Liverman … the actual N-S gallery space has been turned into an ever-evolving installation called Baton by a series of artists working in turn. Listen: "An artist is given a key to the space, a baton. With it they may take their turn installing artwork in the gallery. An artist finishes their turn when they pass the key. The next artist will then have the run of the space. They will confront the work of the previous artists as the leave-behinds of a prior civilization: to honor, remove, build around, relocate, or cover up." Phillip Niemeyer and Rachel Freeman started things off in July, then passed the baton to Emily Lee. Stella Alesi took over in late August, followed by James Turner. Jimmy Luu and Tyeschea West added to the show in September. In October, it was Transmountain Design and Vy Ngo with the Baton. And then: Ryan Sandison Montgomery, Matthew Steinke, and Dawn Okoro. And now here's a whole new year, and gallerista Niemeyer says this tag-team situation will continue until we're all clear of the 'ronas, and so who knows what this wonderment has morphed into at this point. We say: Check it out!

    The Contemporary Austin: I'm and Bible Eye

    Austin-born and internationally acclaimed, Deborah Roberts critiques notions of beauty, the body, race, and identity in contemporary society through the lens of Black children. (Her first solo museum presentation in Texas, "I'm," is part of The Contemporary Austin's participation in the Feminist Art Coalition – a nationwide initiative of art institutions to generate awareness of feminist thought, experience, and action through exhibitions and events.) Norway's Torbjørn Rødland works with analog technology and readymade spaces to create photographs that render the everyday uncanny. His images blend the cool, seductive aestheticism of commercial and fashion photography with the layered complexity of a conceptual practice, resulting in ambivalent perspectives that both attract and repulse.
