INTERSECT PALM SPRINGS               ART & DESIGN FAIR    FEB. 9 - 12, 2023   PALM SPRINGS CONVENTION CENTER
The Desert and the Human Spirit: Panel and Reception

Saturday, February 11
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Palm Springs Art Museum’s Annenberg Theater

101 Museum Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92262

Panel:  6:00 - 7:15 pm
Reception:  7:15 - 8:00 pm

Despite the inhospitable nature of the desert, artists have long been drawn to it.  It is partly due to the availability of space in more remote areas, but also to the space itself, to the spiritual connection they feel to the landscape, and the flora and fauna that manage to thrive upon it. This panel will explore that connection with artists who have lived and worked there — we'll discuss what drew them to the desert, what inspires them, and how they make work. We will also consider if their work has fundamentally changed or been influenced by their environment and, if so, how.

Panelists: Lita Albuquerque, Diane Best, and Sharon Ellis.

Moderated by Scarlet Cheng, arts journalist and adjunct college professor.

The discussion will be followed by a screening of the newly launched profile of Lita Albuquerque produced by The Artist Profile Archive. Running time approximately 14 mins.

Afterwards, guests are invited to attend a cocktail reception in the Elrod Sculpture Gardens, adjacent to the theater.

This event is co-presented by Intersect Palm Springs, Palm Springs Art Museum, and Desert X. Admission is free to Intersect VIPs, Desert X Leadership Circle, and the museum's upper level members.

Hello,

As many of you know, I feel a strong  connection to the Navajo (Dine) and the land of the Navajo Nation. I go there 2-3 times/year for inspiration....both from the landscape and from the people.

The Navajo are really suffering disproportionately from covid19, and have extremely limited resources. 33% have no running water or electricity, and food markets are limited.

I have made a print of a new charcoal drawing of Monument Valley, titled 

"Out of the Darkness". 
Limited edition of 20, image size is 9"x24"
archival giclee prints 
$150.

These prints are now available.
I've kept the price reasonable, and will donate 50% of the proceeds to a group bringing supplies to the Navajo Nation. They are especially focusing on elders who live in remote areas, with no running water, and bringing food and supplies to them.
I can easily ship these anywhere in US. no postage charge.
Please consider helping the Navajo & enjoying a print!

 

Here is a link to the group I've been helping:

thank you for any help you can give to the Navajo,

Diane
