    Umlauf Sculpture Garden: With Out, With In

    If you're standing at the crossroads of wood and sculpture, one of the talented giants you'll see landmarking that intersection will be James Surls. If you're at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum for this new show, you'll be amazed by more than 30 of that maestro's works – many of his iconic, surrealistic wooden creations as well as a few of his giant steel and bronze structures. Note: This is, surprisingly, Surls' first solo exhibition of sculptures in Austin.

    Vampire Hunter D (1985)

    Evergreens: Set in the (presumably) post-apocalyptic world of 12,090 A.D., VHD takes the viewer into a world where mankind has regressed both technologically and spiritually to the point where the masses are ruled over by power-hungry, lust-crazed vampiric overlords acting as feudal land barons, sucking not only the blood from their charges but also their humanity.

    Wally Workman Gallery: A Ponderous Weight

    Mallory Page's new body of large-scale, abstract works is a painterly interpretation of Kate Chopin’s The Awakening – beginning with a site-specific installation that interweaves canvas panels behind resin busts of Venus to cover walls, pool onto the floor, and envelop viewers in a sense of space.

    Words/Matter: Latin American Art and Language

    Drawn primarily from the Blanton’s extensive collection of Latin American art, this exhibition offers an innovative perspective on how artists of the region have explored the links between visual art and written language since the early decades of the twentieth century, with examples ranging from Alejandro Xul Solar and Joaquín Torres-García’s creation of alphabets and metaphysical signs, to the visual experiments of Brazilian concrete poets in the 1960s, and the political codification of language by conceptualists since the 1970s.
