Da Eve O' Destruction: Paintings and Drawings by Bunny Matthews 

His work appears in newspapers (including this one), at the Audubon Insectarium and on bread delivery trucks, yet he's been called 'one of New Orleans' most reclusive cultural icons." What gives? A leading interpreter of 'Yat" (a term he hates) culture, Bunny Matthews is in fact a son of immigrants from north Louisiana and a resident of a secret Northshore suburb said to be 100 feet above sea level " a perfect Olympian aerie from which to crank out all those drawings, paintings and, of course, the countless Vic and Nat'ly cartoons that have been a fixture of local life since 1982. Now, in a rare moment of accessibility, a choice selection of all of the above " including his Katrina-inspired diptych The Devil is an Optimist (pictured) " is on display at Vega Tapas Café. — D. Eric Bookhardt

Through October
