Annual Judged Guild Members Show
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.
Our valued Guild Member Artists are invited each year to a group exhibition that fills the Gallery space for a judged exhibition. This year's judge, Terry Taylor-Castillo (owner, Taylor Junction Gallery in Joshua Tree), will be challenged to pick only a select few pieces of artwork for the cash awards since the quality of art throughout this exhibition is so impressive.
Join us for the Awards Reception on Sunday, March 5, 1 to 3 pm. | see flyer for details
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 judged 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.
