On Sunday, Sept. 8, the Bear Valley Springs Cultural Arts Association will present another of the popular Insight Series about prehistoric pictographs in Mexico. The event will begin at 4 p.m. and will be held in the Equestrian Center Lounge in Bear Valley Springs.
The meeting will feature a presentation by Jeanette Pauer on the efforts of The Shumla School, an internationally recognized education and archeological research center located on the Pecos River just west of Del Rio, Texas, to record and document this world-class rock art. Shumla launched the Lower Pecos Rock Art Recording and Preservation project in 2009, the most intensive rock art documentation project ever undertaken in the region.
The presentation will include a visual tour through many of the rock art shelters in the Lower Pecos region, a history of paint making and the future of rock art in archeology.
In 2011 Pauer became the assistant deputy executive director of The Shumla School. In August 2012 she and her family moved to Tehachapi where she creates artwork from her studio and is active in the local community.
Since space for the event is limited, reservations are required by no later than Sept. 5. Call Nancy at 821-3534 for reservations or a gate pass.
