The weekend culture: Austin arts picks

 

  • Painting on a roll: We discovered Rachel K. Bury’s intriguing paintings on the last East Austin Studio Tour. Now, Bury has her first solo spotlight at Grayduck Gallery, opening Saturday night. Bury paints in reverse on clear plastic, layering to create abstracted one-dimensional images that are then transformed into three-dimensional structural paintings. It’s trippy, and smart.

  • If the shoe fits… Ballet Austin finishes its season Mother’s Day-friendly “Cinderella.” Stephen Mills set his classic contemporary choreography to Glazunov’s romantic score, which will be played by the Austin Symphony Orchestra.
