Riverside Drive.


"Ensoul." For Maura Schaffer, the dining room table is more than an ordinary domestic object. It is a symbol of all that is good about humanity. Functioning as a tool for sustenance, conversation and unification, the tables created for this exhibit are not only sculpted and painted by the artist but imbued with a soul. 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday through July 27. Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Road.

The classes cater to all levels of yoga experience. 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. 422 Guadalupe St.
