As you may have recalled in one of our previous blog posts there was a desert artist exhibition in our neighboring community of Imperial Valley.  The art show, titled Desert Rising : Artists of the Coachella Valley, took place at Imperial Valley College in El Centro, CA.

Desert artists, musicians and supporters of the scene traveled down for a night of 760-ism.

Check out the photos submitted by local photographer from Indio, Carlos Flores Beltran.  There is also a link to a great recap article from IVPressOnline.com and 3 additional photos from one of their talented photographers, Fernando Acosta Photo.

We are looking forward seeing the scene further expand…thinking maybe Inland Empire next?!?!  What do you think?

Members of two desert communities came together Thursday afternoon to celebrate Juanita Salazar Lowe Art Gallery’s season opener, “Desert Rising: Artists from the Coachella Valley.”

The show, held at the Imperial Valley College gallery, featured a number of artists based out of the Imperial Valley’s northwest neighbors.

When asked why the gallery chose to set up a show made up entirely of out-of-towners, gallery director Carol Hegarty said they wanted to branch out and reach different facets of the community.

“We’re really very close to each other and would like to set up a dialogue.” she stated.
