Lora Reynolds Gallery’s “Ellsworth Kelly: Prints.” Starting in the 1940s, Kelly made paintings, sculptures and prints of precise, simplified shapes in vibrant color. Shape and color are the main focus of his art, but his work stands apart from that of other early geometric abstractionists because it has always been derived from his visual experiences. His work is also on display currently at the Blanton, including a large permanent structure called “Austin.” 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday through March 31. 360 Nueces St., Suite. 50. lorareynolds.com.
