During the charged political climate of 2016, Cynthia Mulcahy looked to the nature around her as a source of inspiration. Her explorations eventually resulted in a field guide detailing trails off of the beaten path to share not only the beauty of nature in Dallas but also its layered history.

The artist explains, “My artist version of a field guide, heavy on the history of place, is illustrated with watercolor paintings of discoveries made over four years of getting intentionally lost observing wildlife, scribbling field notes, taking photographs, making audio recordings. Unapologetically, the paintings are intended as singular meditations on beauty: the bright blue eyes of a White Ibis, the magnificent beak of a climate-threatened Wood Stork, a study of tiny-winged insects, all unforeseen beauty encountered in the wild.”

Explore the remote trails in Cynthia’s field guide here, and reconnect with art, nature, and history.
