Don't let the beautifully painted trees and shrubs fool you-- Jane Starks isn't your typical painter. Besides receiving her formal art training (at SMU, no less), Starks has degrees in archeology and regional planning, all of which contribute in some way or another to the way she approaches her on-site paintings. The artist masterfully manipulates gouache and watercolor to depict the pockets of wilderness hidden in urban areas of Texas, New Mexico and Utah.

Opening reception: Saturday, October 26, 6 - 8 p.m.

Artist Talk: Saturday, November 2, 11 a.m.
