A new gallery has opened in Kansas called The Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs.  You’ll find it on scenic highway 177 just north of Matfield Green, Kansas, in the heart of the Flint Hills.  The arts of two citizens of Matfield Green are featured until June 28th,  Elaine Shea Jones’ insightful and lovely photographs and Bill McBride’s fun and fanciful sculptures. Combine a visit to the gallery with a walk at the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve north of Strong City and you’ll have a richer experience. Area dining options include The Grand Central Hotel and Emma Chase Cafe in Cottonwood Falls and the hamburger bar, The Hitchin’ Post, in Matfield.

Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Werner Herzog‘s 2010 film, Cave of Forgotten Dreams,  shows masterful cave drawings done by ancestors 25,000 to 32,000 years ago. The drawings were found in 1994 in Chauvet Cave in the south of France. Herzog is our film guide, but towards the end of the story he allows us some time alone to simply observe those beautiful drawings.  The film is in 3-D, which is perfect for viewing the uneven surfaces of the cave wall.
