“Barnacles of Existence.” In this Women and Their Work show, artist Jill Bedgood creates mixed media sculpture and installations that contemplate the dualities in life, the cyclical nature of existence and the weight of memory.

Opening reception: 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday. Through April 21. 1710 Lavaca St. 512-477-1064, womenandtheirwork.org.
