Great new article about Aurora in Arts+Culture Texas as we approach our 20th anniversary and Aurora20 celebration! Thanks Nancy Zastudil. And thanks to all who've been a part of this exciting endeavor! So far, so good. #Aurora20

Typically this phrase precedes a stunt, mishap, or otherwise social-media-meme-worthy epic fail. But in the picture perfect world of Aurora Picture Show, it translates into community support, successful collaboration, and artistic experimentation.

Aurora Picture Show's first ever public screening in June of 1998 was Extremely Shorts–an open call program of all sorts of independent film and video work with the only stipulation being that they were 3 minutes or less. Bill Daniel's "History of Texas City" collage film was included in that first program 20 years ago. (And soon after, Bill began bringing radical West Coast film programs to Aurora.) Extremely Shorts is still going strong as Houston's funkiest film festival, including bite size moving image madness from around the globe. Don't miss this year's Extremely Shorts fest at Aurora this coming Friday and Saturday! #Aurora20

    For hunters, South Texas colors a feast for the senses
    In the right light and aspect, dung beetles are strikingly colorful and, yes, beautiful creatures. At least the pair busy at their kind's Sisyphean task of shoving an impressive ball of their namesake up a sandy incline struck me as such.

    Revamped ShareLunker program a big success
    Most of the million-plus Texas anglers who primarily target largemouth bass, the nation's most popular sport fish, will brag that their state is home to the most abundant, diverse and high-quality bass fisheries in the country. Early results from the 2018 ShareLunker program give those anglers and the Texas fisheries managers who oversee those fisheries ammunition to support that claim.

    Texas red snapper season extended to 82 days, longest since 2007
    After more than two decades of seeing opportunities to catch and retain red snapper from federally controlled waters of the Gulf of Mexico increasingly restricted even as the popular reef fishes' once-struggling population soared, Texas' long-suffering offshore recreational anglers this week saw that pendulum swing slightly but significantly the other direction.

Perfect weather for tonight's free outdoor screening in the garden at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft! Among great experimental films by Marie Menken, Stan Brakhage, Ben Russell, Joel Schlemowitz, and others, we're very happy to feature a 16mm print of the fantastic "Another Void" by San Francisco filmmaker Paul Clipson, who sadly passed away this February.

And any turkey hunter afield in Texas during spring season should approach such a spot remembering that an ambush can work both ways. We are not the only hunters afield on Texas' spring landscape.
