"...Like the curtain, Erin Curtis' wall-based works in her solo exhibition "A Narrow Escape From History" are made of layer upon layer of perforated canvas, each stretched over the one below, then further patterned through brightly colored paint.

"..."Making It Together," the second part of the summer UT art grad shows at the CRL, presents different ways you can collaborate on an art project.

"...With $4,000 from the Idea Fund, the Texas regranting program funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, MASS commissioned 12 works to be placed in specific alleys between Lady Bird Lake and MLK in East Austin throughout 2013. MASS members Erin Curtis, Drew Liverman, Andy Rihn, and Xochi Solis are among the creators, but it's more than the collective's cats leaving surprises in these alleys; participants range from local printmaker Matt Rebholz to the high-school artists in AMOA-Arthouse's Club-A program to Brooklyn-based painter Yashua Klos..."

"...469-SHOW. Creature Feature Oh, girl! It's Halloween and you haven't a thing to wear! Scary-y!! If you are one of those drama queens who gets worked into a lather at the prospect of dressing yourself for even the most benign social function, then hustle your bustle (don't crease your ass-piece!) on down to the Costume Creation Carnival, at Top Drawer Thrift Store, 4902 Burnet.

"...Sir Skateboard and I parted ways as I discovered my VIP status and donned my badge, a leather tab riveted to a scrap of dyed organic cotton. Channeling Tony Curtis in Sweet Smell of Success, I squared my jaw, glowered, and spat, "From now on, the best of everything is good enough for me!" Then I went to stand in another single file line at the Republic Tequila table..."
"...The good: Gremio looks and acts like some combination of LL Cool J, circa 1991, and a Homie doll; Petruchio often gallops onstage re-enacting the Monty Python and the Holy Grail faux horse ride (replete with coconut). The not-so-good: starting the second half of the show with an Austin Powers-esque urination sequence and forced malapropisms, such as turning Curtis into a Deadhead based solely on a forced reading of the word "pot."..."

"...While a political period piece may be a change of pace for Nichols, in many ways, Loving harkens back to his breakout sophomore success Take Shelter. Both focus on a plain-speaking rural couple being subjected to "this giant power outside of their perspective, that is forcing itself upon them." In Take Shelter, that's prophetic visions plaguing farmer Curtis LaFourche (Michael Shannon, who appears in Loving as Life photographer Grey Villet)..."
