The High Desert in Abiquiu has inspired Texas artist Jim Woodson since exploring the region via motorcycle in the late 1980s. His paintings are a unity of the intuitive process of painting, personal ideology, and the desert landscape. Woodson embraces the concepts of time, space, and knowledge in his work and uses these three elements to title his paintings.

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 4, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Artist Talk: Saturday, May 11, 11 a.m.

Dallas Sierra Club: Wilderness Navigation - Dallas

May 7 2019 - 6:30pm to May 8 2019 - 9:00pm
Whole Foods Market
Preston Road and Forest Lane
Dallas , TX

Learn the fundamentals of navigating your way in the wilderness in this fun and comprehensive two-night class. Among the subjects covered are: looking for and purchasing different type maps, how to read maps, how not to get lost, map use if you do get lost, different kinds of compasses and how to use your compass. There will be some discussion about GPS, but our main focus is learning how to use a map and compass so you're not trusting your navigation (and life) to something that takes batteries. If you have a compass, bring it. If not, we'll have extras you can use and will show you what to look for when you purchase your own.

$40. Cost covers both nights and handout materials. We encourage online signups by Monday before the class (click here) or you can pay with cash or check at the door. A half-day hike the following Saturday or Sunday with the class instructors Arthur Kuehne and Bill Greer will be offered to class participants who want to practice their new skills.
