Art, oysters and more fun to brighten your Monday

Art

“No Trace of Now Will Remain” at Women and Their Work. Inspired by two incongruous sources — the writings of Rimbaud and the look of Victorian mourning attire — Austin artist and fashion designer Gail Chovan gives exaggerated form to the long deceased by adorning apparitions in hyper-stylized garments and accessories from the past. In this Women and Their Work exhibit, she celebrates the remnants of things as potent vehicles for resuscitation. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, noon to 6 p.m. Saturday through March 1. 1710 Lavaca St. womenandtheirwork.org.

Music

“Hi, How Are You?” Day at the Mohawk. Songwriter Daniel Johnston’s trademark catchphrase — the title of his best-known 1980s cassette release, celebrated with a mural near the University of Texas campus — provides the name for this evening “of music, art and mental wellness” presented in conjunction with the SIMS Foundation and the City of Austin’s Music & Entertainment Division. It’s partly a tribute to Johnston: Acts including Kathy McCarty, Moving Panoramas, Jane Ellen Bryant, Will Courtney, Cowboy Diplomacy and Leslie Sisson will play Johnston’s works as well as some of their own. 7 p.m. doors Jan. 22. $10-$15 ($50 VIP). 912 Red River St. mohawkaustin.com. — Peter Blackstock
