An interview with photographer Paul V. Chaplo, author of Marfa Flights: Aerial Views of Big Bend Country. Recorded at the Texas Book Festival in Austin, October 2014. This is #16 in the 24 podcast series Marfa Mondays: Exploring Marfa, Texas and the greater Big Bend region www.cmmayo.com/marfa

"These stunning images of one of the most sparsely populated and least visited regions of North America are not your typical coffee table book pretty pictures. In Marfa Flights: Aerial Views of Big Bend Country, Paul V. Chaplo, a classically trained visual artist who also happens to be a professional photographer, found and composed out of this swirlingly violent and bone-dry landscape something wondrous and haunting. Photographed from a single engine airplane, at various times of day, the land and sky and jewel-like ribbons of water come alive with form, muscle, and color."

An interview with Greg Williams, Executive Director of the Rock Art Foundation. Though the Rock Art Foundation has been working hard to spread the word, it still seems a well-kept secret that some of the most spectacular rock art in the world is tucked into the nooks and crannies of the Lower Pecos Canyonlands of Far West Texas (and into Coahuila, Mexico). I had the great privilege of being able to view some it, specifically, the rock art at Meyers Springs near the tiny border town of Dryden, Texas, through the tour offered by the Rock Art Foundation. Recorded at Meyers Springs Ranch on August 30, 2014. This is #15 in the 24 podcast series Marfa Mondays: Exploring Marfa, Texas and the greater Big Bend region www.cmmayo.com/marfa

Marfa Mondays 9: Mary Baxter, Painting the Big Bend

Mary Baxter came to Marfa years ago for the horses and cattle business and stayed to paint the sky-haunted landscapes in a Sorolla-like play of light: mountains, plains, horses huddling beneath a cliff, a canyon bruised purple with twilight, gold grass, the visual Haiku of a red water tank. Recently returned to Marfa after a decade in (relatively nearby) Marathon, Texas, Mary Baxter talked to C.M. Mayo in her sun-filled studio in October 2012.
