The Palm Desert Community Gallery features artwork from Susan Smith Evans in its new exhibition, "Touching Nature: Images of Hands" through October 28, 2016. There will be a public reception to honor the artist on Monday, September 12 from 5:30 – 7 p.m.
Susan Smith Evans lives in the Coachella Valley, but grew up in the Midwest where she received her Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Nebraska as well as a Master of Fine Art from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She taught art at College of the Desert from the late 1980s through her retirement in 2010. Currently, she shows art regularly at Desert Art Center in Palm Springs, California, and at Venus Studios in Palm Desert, California. She is a member of the Artists Council of the Palm Springs Art Museum and on the Executive Board of Desert Art Center. Susan Smith Evans teaches printmaking at Desert Art Center and Venus Studios.
The artwork that Ms. Evans will be exhibiting in the Palm Desert Community Gallery is based on her long time fascination with hands. Hands are a recurring theme that she has used in her artwork for the past several decades, and is currently motivating her to create new artwork. To her, the artwork symbolizes the human connection to the natural world.
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.
