The Palm Desert Community Gallery features artwork by Gideon Cohn in a new exhibition Ancestral Recall, on display through April 17. The public is invited to a public reception to honor the artist on Monday, February 10 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Gideon Cohn was born in Sweden and later immigrated to Israel with his parents, where he was raised on a kibbutz. In 1983, he moved with his family to southern California to develop raw desert along the Salton Sea into agriculture. While drawing and painting regularly in his studio, Cohn began focusing seriously on his
artwork in the early 1990s when he attended classes in art, interior design, architecture, and more at College of the Desert.
Much of Cohn’s current artwork revolves around the figure with a hint of surrealism. It comes to form in charcoal/pastel on paper, oil on canvas, and some unique techniques that he developed. Some of his work incorporates other media, such as wood, prints, and other materials that provide a third dimension in his art.
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.
