If you haven’t noticed, the Palm Springs art scene has erupted.
On most weekends, it’s not unusual to find a cool art exhibit to attend, especially in the Uptown Design District where archangel art collective, Savage Home and the Woodman/Shimko Gallery have opened during the past year. And these galleries are not only showcasing refreshingly unique art by local artists, they’re bringing a robust social component to the community. Past art parties have created a fun and lively vibe as guests flowed from one gallery to the next.
Here’s a peek at some of the gallery owners and managers contributing to the increasing passion for art and artists, as photographed by David A. Lee at archangel art collective and featured in the September issue of Desert Outlook. (Click on the image to enlarge it.) An accompanying story by writer Matthew Link looks at how this art eruption started and its impact on Palm Springs. Pick up the issue Sept. 5 (www.mydesert.com/desertoutlook).
