One Texas artist has become nearly synonymous with sculpture on a regional scale — Charles Umlauf. Austin residents might already be familiar with the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum, which showcases 51 pieces of his sculpture in verdant gardens. But he also had six children — four of whom became artists and have produced remarkable work that is building upon the Umlauf legacy.

The Russell Collection is helping to show off Arthur, Madelon, Lynn and Karl’s works, as well as their father’s, with this new exhibit.

Details: Opening reception 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday (RSVP requested at 512-478-4440). 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays through April 30. Russell Collection Fine Art, 1137 West Sixth St. russell-collection.com.
