Boyd Matson -- He's an old-school adventurer. The type who naps with lions and summons elephants by blowing through a shell. The journalist and National Geographic Explorer host will be at the Arboretum for one night. (It's catch and release, folks.)

Three Art Openings in Deep Ellum Deep Ellum windows and Apophenia Underground have started filling Deep Ellum's vacant storefronts with art. These shows are often short-lived, lasting for as little as one night and stretching up to a couple of weeks. They're also reactions to the abandoned spaces they inhabit. Three of these open on Thursday, and all are organized by Oliver Francis Gallery. Explore them from 7 to 10 p.m. this evening. Kristin Oppenheim She Was Long Gone at 2652 Main Street: Cram some art in your ears at this sound installation, being done in collaboration with 303 Gallery, NYC. Hannah Hudson "Compliance" at 2650B Main Street: She had one of my favorite pieces at My My Misfire, a Deep Ellum Windows/Apophenia Underground kick-off group show, curated by UT Arlington Professor Stephen Lapthisophon. I'm excited to see what happens when she has the floor to herself. An MFA student, Hudson plays with role reversal. You become part of her work by viewing it interactively. Luis Miguel Bendaña, Nick DeMarce and Pierre Krause present P_E_R_I_S_H_A_B_E_L at 2646 Main Street: No, I do not know why that word is misspelled in this three-man show. Maybe it's art?
