About this time every year we rouse ourselves out of the post-holiday doldrums via AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, the fan-centric component of the AVN Awards Show, which just seems to get bigger and glitzier each year. This year’s expo runs Jan. 15-18 at the Hard Rock Hotel, and features just about every performer, product and publication in adult business. AdultEntertainmentExpo.com.

William Shatner won our undying allegiance years ago when he appeared in a Saturday Night Live skit making sport of Trekkies. He’s since taken the art of being William Shatner so much further. Now Shatner brings his one-man show, Shatner’s World: We Just Live in It, to The Smith Center (see story, Page 59). 7:30 p.m., TheSmithCenter.com.

Wally Cuchine, who has lived in rural Northern Nevada for more than four decades, has long been unflagging in his support for Nevada artists, filling trailers with his personal collection of their unique and sometimes quirky work. Now, thanks to the exhibition Wally’s World: The Loneliest Art Collection in America, much of that art is on display at the Nevada State Museum. Through Feb. 28, Museums.NevadaCulture.org.
