2213 E. Cesar Chavez, 512/826-5334
This standalone Eastside gallery shows work by a diversity of locally progressive and nationally acclaimed artists who tend toward the more academic end of the spectrum but usually provide as much candy for the eyes as food for thought. Jill Schroeder's the affable jefe grande of this wonderfully wood-bedecked space that boasts 17-foot-high ceilings and 1,500 square feet of exhibition space and which also frequently hosts readings, live music, and other community presentations.
The wonders of PrintAustin
are heralded in the excellent grayDUCK space, with Emmons
presenting his records of informal temporary structures and ingenious vernacular designs, with Nam
offering images of man-made environments and objects and cut flower arrangements, with a two-person show that complements and contrasts across the common ground of expert printmaking. Through Feb. 24.
