“Palms” is the theme of the upcoming Art in Public Places exhibition at the Twentynine Palms Visitor Center & Gallery in downtown Twentynine Palms for January, February, and March 2013. Art submissions are due on Friday, Dec. 28, and can be brought to the visitor center between 9 and 11 a.m.


Artists are invited to submit one (1) piece of original art for inclusion in this group exhibition, which will celebrate the iconic palms of our Mojave Desert locale, from the Washingtonia filifera palm trees at the Oasis of Mara and throughout the city to date palms to any variation of “palms” related to Twentynine Palms.


Artwork can be any medium, from oil or acrylic painting, watercolor, pastel, pencil, pen and ink, digital art, collage, mixed media, and photography to sculpture, ceramics, fabric art, assemblage and other three-dimensional work.


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


The gallery is located inside the Twentynine Palms Visitor Center and Chamber of Commerce, 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, Jan. 4 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
