Palm Desert Community Gallery
The Palm Desert Community Gallery features artwork from Tim Robson and Burton Swope, in its new exhibition, Second Chances, on display through January 23.
Tim Robson is an award-winning, self-taught artist whose open brushwork and sweeping use of color have been influenced by artists Fritz Scholder and Richard Diebenkorn. Mr. Robson’s other inspirations include ideas that have come from his travels and experiences. The foundation of his artwork comes from his excitement for life and the people and places that interest him.
Burton Swope was a serious and devoted artist since early childhood. Learning to draw before age 5, he developed as a cartoonist, poster maker, and illustrator. In high school he excelled in sketching, ceramics, water color, and oil studies. Mr. Swope’s artistic influences include Richard Diebenkorn, Jackson Pollock, Wayne Thiebaud, and Mexican muralists David Alfaro Siqueiros and Diego Rivera.
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.
