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.

ACTION ALERT! Dallas Peace & Justice Center: HB 3557 Protest - Dallas

Jun 1 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Dealey Plaza
400 Main St
Dallas , TX

Tell Texas Gov. Greg Abbott not to sign HB 3557 into law! This "anti-protest" bill over-criminalizes peaceful protests at “critical infrastructures." It is devised to discourage use of our rights to free speech and intimidate activists/concerned citizens into silence. The oil & gas industry is behind the bill - and similar anti-protest bills that have been introduced or passed in other states - and the notorious American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is involved in its development.
