The 29 Palms Art Gallery will host an art reception on Saturday, Feb.4, to celebrate the February exhibition. The gallery will be open all day, and reception hospitality will be served on the gallery patio from 4 to 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend and meet the artists. Admission is free.
Featured in the West Wing in February is the artwork by Anza based artist Jane Culp. Her show, “Painting Two Deserts; High and Low”, comprises on-site watercolor and oil paintings following the wilderness trace of the San Andreas fault line from the dancing hills of Anza down into the Anza Borrego desert, into the Coachella Valley then through Joshua Tree National Park, and onto Death Valley and the Eastern Sierra Mountain front.
The East Gallery features paintings by Julie Alvarado in a show titled “Tortoise Days”. With a SoCal upbringing that included a love of the Rose Parade, and early 60s horror movies of giant insect and such, she heard that there were once Tortoise Parades in Joshua Tree. This inspired this body of work of fantastically sized tortoises in sometimes equally improbable settings.
Artists’ Guild members will display a variety of new works in the Members Room this month.
The exhibition will be on display at the gallery February 2 to 26, open Thursday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The historic 29 Palms Art Gallery is located at 74055 Cottonwood Drive at the corner of National Park Drive, in Twentynine Palms, CA. For more information, visit www.29palmsartgallery.com.
