Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden

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.
