Palm Desert Community Gallery
Linda & Linda: Water & Light
The Palm Desert Community Gallery features artwork from Linda Hanna and Linda Richardi in its new exhibition, "Linda & Linda: Water & Light", on exhibit through August 5. There will be a public reception to honor the artists on Monday, June 13, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Linda Hanna is a retired Interior Designer who began her journey into watercolor painting five years ago as a hobbyist. She uses transparent bold colors applied to wet paper, a technique known as “wet on wet,” to create loose, atmospheric works augmented with darks and calligraphy, sometimes using ink or Inktense pencils. The artist's subject matter varies, but she has a preference for desert and California landscapes. Linda has won numerous ribbons in the various Coachella Valley juried shows for her paintings.
Linda Richardi has studied art through much of her life. A photographer for many years, Richardi now creates digitally manipulated photographic images in a painterly style. For this exhibition, she has chosen a series of selections from her chair series - titled "SLIPCOVERED", which consists of a digital canvas that includes a white leather chair with images from the desert blended on the canvas. The exhibition also will feature work from Richardi’s "Fresco" and "Elements" series, which are inspired in part by her travels.
The Palm Desert Community Gallery is located in Palm Desert City Hall, 73-510 Fred Waring Drive, and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call 760-346-0611, ext. 664 or visit www.palmdesertart.org.
