Art Reception on Sunday, Jan. 11 at 29 Palms Art Gallery
The historic 29 Palms Art Gallery will host an art reception on Sunday, Jan. 11, from 12 noon to 3 p.m., at the gallery, located at 74055 Cottonwood Drive, at the corner of National Park Drive in Twentynine Palms. The public is invited to attend the reception, enjoy refreshments, and meet the artists featured in the January exhibition.
Interested in art and issues regarding our desert landscape? DO NOT miss nationally and internationally recognized artists Sant Khalsa, Eva Montville, David Greene, and Shirley James at 29 Palms Art Gallery!
Sant Khalsa’s photographs and photo-based, mixed-media works address complex environmental issues visible in the landscape of the American West and reflect on how personal and societal actions construct our reality and our destiny.
Eva Montville’s wood sculptures, inspired by natural spaces and landforms, reveal her intimate relationship with the desert landscape, the natural world, and her intense feelings about the climate change’s impact on our environment.
David Greene’s desert nightscapes reference vast stretches of open sky and flat lands, strange foliage, distinct dwellings, discernible weather systems, and ever-shifting moods. The quiet magic, subtlety and drama conveyed in these paintings are unlike any other landscapes.
Shirley James’ pyrographic freehand drawings on recovered vintage Joshua Tree veneer are built up via burns like pen and ink drawings and depict freehand studies of Joshua Trees that are randomly dictated by varying textures and porous flows of the wood grains.
Guild Members present a variety of paintings, works on paper, sculptures, and photographs in this month’s exhibition
The January exhibition will remain on display at the gallery through Jan. 25.
The 29 Palms Art Gallery is open 12 to 3 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. For directions or more information about the Jan. 11 reception or upcoming art classes, call the gallery at (760) 367-7819 or visit the gallery’s website at: www.29palmsartgallery.com.
