2471040_9285697_lzAn opening reception will be held on Friday, Jan. 3, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. for the new Art in Public Places exhibition in the gallery at the Twentynine Palms Visitor Center and Chamber of Commerce, 73484 29 Palms Hwy., in downtown Twentynine Palms.


“Dust, Rust & Verdigris: Weathered Relics of the Desert” is the theme for the winter show, which features a variety of two- and three-dimensional artwork by local artists. The public is invited to attend the reception on Jan. 3 and meet the artists, enjoy refreshments, and listen to the music of Mark Ross and Paul Gerkin on mandolin and guitar. Admission is free.


The new art show features work inspired by desert relics that have been transformed by dust, rust, and verdigris, the natural patina formed by weather over time. Artists were invited to submit paintings, photography, mixed media, sculpture and assemblage to portray the effects of the desert climate on man-made objects, the environment, and historical remnants from an earlier era.


The show will remain on display through January, February, and March 2014.


The gallery is open daily in the Twentynine Palms Visitor Center and Chamber of Commerce at the corner of Desert Queen Ave. and the highway, downtown Twentynine Palms. For hours or directions, call (760) 367-6197.


Art in Public Places exhibitions are presented by the Public Arts Advisory Committee of the City of Twentynine Palms.
