Desert Living. A new month means a new show at the Wilde Meyer Gallery. And in October, all of the gallery’s art is centered around the theme of what it’s like to live in the desert. Whether it’s a Native American looking off at the sun from atop his horse, a vibrant landscape or desert wildlife draped in Sonoran sunshine, you’ll see the beauty of the desert portrayed from angles you never realized existed. Even if you already think the desert is beautiful and love living here, there’s something fascinating about seeing your world through someone else’s eyes. Oct. 1 through Oct. 31. 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays. Every Thursday, the gallery is open for ArtWalk from 5 to 7 p.m. as well, with refreshments and special events. Wilde Meyer Gallery, 2870 E. Skyline Drive. Free. Details Here.
