Jan. 18-Mar. 29: Marley Dawson: Statics and Dynamics
Marley Dawson: Statics and Dynamics goes on view tomorrow at HEMPHILL Fine Arts in Northwest, where you can check it out through March 29. In the exhibit, the Australian artist explores American material culture by creating work using automobiles, soapbox cars, model rockets and other objects that utilize energy and mobility. There will be a public reception tomorrow night from 6 to 8.

Jan. 17-Feb. 16: Scapin
You can see Bill Irwin and Mark O’Donnell’s modern adaptation of Molière's classic farce Scapin performed at Source Theatre through February 16. Directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer, this Constellation Theatre Company production is set to live music and follows the endlessly crafty servant Scapin and his not-so-bright sidekick Sylvestre as they help their two young masters marry penniless beauties against both fathers’ wishes. You can attend a pay-what-you-can preview of this comedy tonight at 8:30 or tomorrow at 8.
