Fractured Landscapes of the West, March 3 to May 29

At the opening of this intimate exhibit, hear from Colorado-based landscape painter Sangeeta Reddy as she discusses her work and her artistic process. Born in 1955 in Hyderabad, India, Reddy splits her time between the Western states and her home country, but focuses her work on the landscapes of Colorado, Arizona, and Utah. Her vibrant geometric shapes and expressive colors give her warm, rocky scenes a sort of tectonic fluidity. The display is presented by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art as part of its offsite BMoCA at Macky series. Thu 6-8 p.m.; Macky Auditorium Concert Hall, 17th St. and University Ave.; free.

10 Myths on the Proper Application of Beauty Products, March 4 to March 26

For this fascinating dark comedy, six actors join together with a three-person band to tell the story of a group of friends that are part of a strange love hexagon. Based on local author Miriam Suzanne’s open-source novel Riding SideSaddle*, the play mixes tradition with modernity and realism with absurdity. Partially based on the Greek myth of Salmacis and Hermaphroditus, who are merged into “one being of both sexes,” the play asks its viewers to ponder the meaning of what we see when we stand in front of the mirror each day. Thu-Sat 8 p.m.; Sun 3 p.m.; Buntport Theater Company, 717 Lipan St.; $13-$20.

Ladies’ night gets a makeover with this science-themed meet-and-greet. Girls interested in STEM career fields can meet professional female scientists, including atmospheric scientist Karen Kosiba, research ecologist Jenny Briggs, and Brenn Wheeler, who processes tissue for surgical grafts, and others who use science in unexpected ways at work (say, art conservationists and theater set designer)s. All ladies can spend time in diverse “Science Clubhouses,” where they’ll engage in activities such as exploring the weather lab or examining medical images. Sat 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Denver Museum of Nature & Science, 2001 Colorado Blvd.; ticket prices vary.

Five locally raised, heritage breed pigs divvied up into 36 mouthwatering dishes, plus pairings with five local winemakers and a host of cocktails.
