Desertscapes is a collaboration of major arts and community organizations. Each year during the month of April, you are invited to attend free exhibits of contemporary and historical artists, as well as talks by some of California's leading art and photography experts, painting demonstrations, workshops, paint-outs in the field with modern day landscape artists, and more.
Come discover a favorite early painter, meet a modern desert artist or paint a smoketree of your own. Become part of the renaissance of desert art. For more information contact Deborah Schwartz, City of Palm Desert Public Art Coordinator, at (760) 837-1664 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit them on Facebook and like their Desertscapes Community Page.
See what guests from previous years' events are saying:
To see incredibly high quality art in such wonderful surroundings with like minded participants was a memorable experience.
-- Richard and Jane Twedt
The slide lectures and demonstrations by artists helped to educate the public that the Coachella Valley has been and continues to be an active art community.
--artist Elaine Mathews
I didn’t realize how many Plein Air enthusiasts were in the valley until now! Desertscapes inspired me to learn more and develop an appreciation for this style of painting.
