Art


“Drawing Tense” at Lora Reynolds Gallery. For this exhibition of new work by Lucas Simões — the artist's second presentation — angular or curved shapes have been cut into blackened steel plates. They are essentially turned into elaborate paperclips that pinch, pull and compress his trademark stacks of tracing paper. In the Project Room at the gallery, Laddie John Dill’s “Contained Radiance Austin” is concurrently on display through Feb. 1. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday through Feb. 1. 360 Nueces St. lorareynolds.com
