Albert James Bonar Jr. (1947-2013) was better known by his artistic moniker Jimmy Jalapeeno. After studying at the University of Texas — where he worked with legendary documentary photographer Russell Lee — Jimmy worked a day job for nearly 30 years as a photographer for the Texas Historical Commission, while maintaining a prolific practice as a painter and artistic photographer. Jalapeeno and his camera were ubiquitous around Austin for years.

Flatbed Press honors him with an exhibit of his paintings and photographs.

Details: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday. Through May 2. Free. Flatbed Press and Gallery. 2832 E. Martin Luther King Blvd. 512-477-9328, http://www.flatbedpress.com.
