    Davis Gallery: Looking Out, Looking In

    This is an extensive group exhibit focused on the personal philosophies of premiere Austin and Central Texas artists. Sacred geometry, the importance of family, life and death, our connection to Nature, and spirituality are among the perspectives that the artists (Randall Reid, Sam Yeates, Jan Heaton, Faustinus Deraet, David Leonard, Denise Fulton, and John Sager, among others) have focused on. What a fine follow-up to that excellent "Lone Star Wild" show, and what a glorious way to bid 2019 farewell!
    Reception: Sat., Dec. 7, 7-9pm

    Dimension Gallery: Example Geometry

    Tom Bandage, inspired by the machinist’s craft and the volumetric simplicity of Bauhaus, attempts to capture the shape of thought through geometric contortions of material, removing traditional construction materials such as concrete, metal, and acrylic from their urban contexts and applying them to abstract conceptions of form and space.
    Reception: Fri., Dec. 6, 6-9pm

    ICOSA: The New Flesh

    Is it too obvious to say "all hail" to this new exhibition of work by that storied creator of graphic psychedelia Matt Rebholz and the modern Magellan of sculptural form and texture Terra Goolsby? In any case, we recommend this "array of intimate pieces that meditates on notions of transfiguration, intracorporeal transit, and planetary departure, offering encounters with bodily and terrestrial alternatives for an uncertain future."
    Reception: Fri., Dec. 6, 7-10pm
