Artwork at High Desert Medical Center

Refractured watercolor painting

#583 Sea Crest Dawn #33. Refractured watercolor on panel, 24×18″. $540.

On Friday I attended the reception for the group show at the High Desert Medical Center in Joshua Tree, California.  There are four other artists in the show, Charlie Schwartz, Sharon Matheson, Nichole Vikdal and Darlene H. Morris.  One of the interesting tidbits about this show is that they have an online store for this art, and you can click to purchase!  The downside is you cannot take the art away until the show is over at the end of July.  Oh well, anticipation can be a good thing!

We had a few snacks served and then Darlene gave the group the guided tour and we each gave a little talk about our work being shown, though Charlie wasn’t present.  Then we had an extra little celebration because Darlene is handing over the reins (no pun intended) to Raini who will be curating the shows for the foreseeable future.  This involved a cake, which had one of her paintings printed on the frosting!  Is there no limit to where you can put artwork?

If you’re in the area between now and the end of July, take a few minutes to walk through and see the work – there are brochures available throughout with information about it.

29 Palms Gallery show

So,  a week after the reception, talk and workshop, I finally get around to uploading pix from the gallery.  I have a solo show in the main gallery of 29 Palms Art Gallery through the end of the month – so if you’re in the high desert, stop by if you can!  If you think the workshop looks fun (it is****), I run them elsewhere, or can schedule a private one for a group of the right size in Southern California.

Little ones getting some help. I was glad Kadence’s Mom stayed around, she is not confident of her abilities.
