    Blue Genie Art Bazaar: New May Market

    The creators of the Blue Genie Art Bazaar present a new spring arts event called May Market, a free, family-friendly experience showcasing the work of regional artisans and craftspeople under one roof with centralized checkout. "This is the ideal place to shop for locally made, one-of-a-kind gifts for Father’s Day, graduations, anniversaries, weddings, and more." That's what the press release says, anyway, trying to entice us in; thing is, that's even a bit too humble: We know what sort of market the Blue Genie gathers, and it's sure to be a lively splendorama of well-made goods coveted by anyone with a taste for the original, off-beat, and brilliantly homegrown.
    Through May 31. Fri.-Sun., 10am-8pm

    ICOSA's Window Dressing XI: Unruly Waters Insult the Shore

    This latest of ICOSA's everchanging front-window displays of creative expression is a tableau that "explores ideas of blurred boundaries and futility of containment by depicting the grotesque as the embodiment of conflict between art and nature." As rendered by Austin's own Big Chicken & Baby Bird, it's sure to be a vivid if fleeting addition to the many visuals at Canopy.
    Through May 17. Reception: Fri., May 14, 7-9pm
