    Raw Paw Gallery: Notes From a Windowless Room

    "These paintings," says Nadia Waheed, "are an effort to form a bridge between my Pakistani heritage and my westernization, primarily by exploring the brown female nude." Several large works by Waheed adorn the delightful Raw Paw space over there in the Yard on St. Elmo, and – tell you what – if every creative "effort" were as well-wrought and lovely to behold as these paintings, the whole world would be a better place to have eyes in.
    Reception: Fri., Feb. 15, 7pm-12mid

    Classical Music

    Lardo Weeping

    This is LOLA's workshop premiere of a chamber opera based on the legendary show by Terry Galloway, featuring a libretto by Galloway and an original score by Peter Stopschinski. The production stars mezzo-soprano Liz Cass as Dinah LaFarge, a "rather large, intellectual, quite sexual woman of independent means who seldom ventures outside her apartment and refuses to answer her door unarmed." Oh, this'll be some kind of a thing, all right!
    March 9-16. Wed.-Sat., 7pm; Sun., 2pm. $15-50.

    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.
