April 2017 Art Exhibition

Teal Buehler presents Surreal Collages: Transitions  |  Mojave Desert, CA

I grew up a child of artist parents in Trinidad California, a small town known for its rain, fog, and coastal scenery. I spent most of my time outside at the beach, rivers, and in the woods which created a strong connection to nature.  I studied drawing, painting, collage and ceramics; graduating from Humboldt State University with a bachelor’s degree in art.

Seeking more sun I moved to Central Oregon.  Bend provided a natural beauty that continued to provide inspiration.  Another change of scenery to the Mojave Desert is the latest chapter in a collection of experiences for the development of my work.  In my studio I can call on past and current experiences, visions and illustrations to create these unique impressions of the natural world.  My physical journeys are reflected in my designs and I am intrigued to follow this path and see where it takes my art.  I will keep exploring the outdoors to develop this vision of the natural world as I see it.

Guild Member Artists present a Group Exhibition

Our valued Guild Member Artists will present a group exhibition in the Pickering Room.

Our Guild Members are the lifeblood of the 29 Palms Art Gallery. This all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 Guild was started by eight artists in 1951-2, the permanent Gallery space was opened in 1963, and it continues to be operated and supported by Guild Members today. Its mission is to present high-quality art, to encourage creative growth through innovative educational programs, and to offer an inclusive environment for artists and community members to meet, exchange ideas, and create art.

The Gallery is one of the most important artist resources in the Morongo Basin. It is the longest-standing non-profit art space and for over 50 years has presented the best of the Hi-Desert. Each year, the 29 Palms Art Gallery presents a range of exhibitions that reinforce the mission of the Guild and the Gallery, and supports the artists and the community we serve. The diversity and mix of exhibitions reflects an ever-changing artistic community as well as the Gallery’s roots and traditions.

Members have the opportunity to exhibit artwork in members-only exhibitions, enter annual juried shows, or be considered for featured-artist exhibitions. Other perks include: free links to member websites, art classes, artist professional development, weekly paint outs, invitations to important events, and docent or volunteer opportunities.
