The Palm Desert Community Gallery features artwork from Travis Hiner in a new exhibition The Suboken Project: Presenting..., on display from November 21 to January 31. The Gallery will host a public reception to honor the artist on Monday, November 25 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. The exhibition will include artwork from Hiner’s In a Place and The Cartographer’s Dilemma series.
In a Place is a photo print series that the artist has been working on for more than six years. The prints feature an assortment of diverse, hand-sculptured miniature picnic tables placed in commonly overlooked neighborhood environments. The composition of each image is framed so that the natural surroundings of the picnic table appear to be new and exotic locales.
The Cartographer’s Dilemma is a series of wall reliefs created using polymer clay, sand, and acrylic paint. The sculptures are a study on the use of language without words and are thematically inspired by techniques cartographers use when constructing geographic maps.
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.
