“Sunrise/Sunset” is the title of the new Art in Public Places fall exhibition at the Twentynine Palms Visitor Center & Gallery and Chamber of Commerce building in downtown Twentynine Palms. Entries are due on Friday, August 31, and the show will be on display from Sept. 1 to Oct. 31.

Artists are invited to submit one (1) piece of original art for inclusion in this group exhibition, which will celebrate the iconic sunrises and sunsets of our Mojave Desert locale and Joshua Tree National Park. Artwork can be brought to the Visitor Center between 9 and 11 a.m. on August 31 and can be any medium, from painting, watercolor, drawing, collage, mixed media, and photography to fabric art and three-dimensional work.

There is no charge for entering a work, and pieces should be offered for sale. All work must be suitable for viewing by the general public and ready to hang or mount with professional wire or hardware.

The gallery is located inside the Twentynine Palms Visitor Center, 73484 29 Palms Hwy., at the corner of Desert Queen Avenue downtown Twentynine Palms, (760) 367-6719, and is open 9-5 Monday through Friday and 10-4 Saturday and Sunday.

An opening reception is being planned for Friday, Sept. 7, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., and will be sponsored by the Historic Plaza Merchants, with music by Patti Hood.

Art in Public Places exhibitions are presented by the Public Arts Advisory Committee of the City of Twentynine Palms. For more information, contact Jon Beard at (760) 367-7562 or email publicarts@29palms.org.
