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.
By means of sculpture and installation, Spanish artist Ana Esteve Llorens
explores the reality of space as a sensory experience, using natural and manufactured materials, craft techniques, and industrial processes to engage with different methods of production and a local and international community of makers. Through Feb. 23.
