Coming up

Williamson Museum Salon. This month’s salon will feature David Gaines, a local Bob Dylan expert whose talk is titled “Tales from the Dylan Trade: Music, Literature, Teaching, and Nobelity.” He recently discussed Dylan’s significance on ABC News, NPR, Al Jazeera and the BBC. In December, he was also in Stockholm covering the Nobel ceremonies for the Austin Chronicle. 6:30 p.m. Jan. 11. Free. Wildfire Restaurant, 812 S. Austin Ave. in Georgetown. williamsonmuseum.org.

Viva Texas Vino at the Bullock Museum. Get your weekend started early with a fun and flavorful night exploring Texas wine. Certified sommelier, author and Texas Monthly columnist Jessica Dupuy will walk guests through a brief history of Texas viniculture and the burgeoning wine industry located here. Plus, you’ll learn about the varietals produced across the state as you taste wine from the Texas Fine Wine group — including Pedernales Cellars and Brennan Vineyards — paired with delicious Texas treats. 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 12. Free. 1800 Congress Ave. 512-936-4629, thestoryoftexas.com.

“The Noisy Neighbors.” Different Stages continues its season with Carlo Goldoni’s “The Noisy Neighbors” or “Il Campiello,” a comedy written for the Venetian Carnival of 1756, about four scrappy, hard-working, hard-playing families whose daily lives on a small square are interrupted by the arrival of a mysterious wealthy stranger. 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays through Jan. 28. $15-$30. Trinity Street Theatre, 901 Trinity St. main.org/diffstages/.

Karen Kunc + Monika Meler at Gallery Shoal Creek. A spectrum of color and light connects Kunc’s woodcuts and Meler’s relief prints in this two-person exhibit. The span of time is central to both artists’ imagery. For Kunc, the natural world is where she finds inspiration, whereas Meler draws on place, referencing memories of her childhood in Poland and her immigration to the U.S. The show is part of PrintAustin. Opening reception 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 13. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. 2832 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Suite 3. 512-454-6671, galleryshoalcreek.com.
