    Wally Workman Gallery: Deconstructing Nostalgia

    Elizabeth Chapin’s work references her Southern upbringing and the conflicted nostalgia surrounding the gentility and graciousness of the South. "Chapin views much of this culture as made possible largely by graceless and dark systems. This obfuscation of ugliness and the worship of appearance is the theme that runs throughout her new body of work." Ayup. Now, how about a large array of exemplary fauvist portraits, sometimes embellished by frames of tulle or active neon twisted like wild yarn? This fierce combo sizzles like angel spit on a griddle, makes eyes take wing. Recommended.
    Tuesdays-Sundays. Through March 24

    Comedy

    Zach Martina

    The Velv comes roaring back (like, "RARRRRR," approximately) after its brief SXSW shuttering, ready to rock your world with this righteous road warrior (you hear his Skunkman album on Sirius/XM all the damn time, right?) and his dark and perforce bearded take on our mad, mad world. Bonus: Ashley Overton opens.
    March 22-23. Fri., 9pm; Sat., 9 & 11pm. $10.
