Last week was the opening show to Outside in Here, a female trio art exhibit showcasing what life is like in the desert via Natalie Aguayo, Kristin Winters and Rose Winter’s artistic perspectives. To read the interviews with each artist regarding their background and works on display, click their name:OUTSIDE IN HERE is the attempt to showcase how a single surrounding penetrates and influences the human psyche. Each of the individual artists grew up and came of age within the desert setting; the external stimuli of living in an inhospitable environment shaped them as people and as artists. Rather than expressing detest for this barren world, these artists celebrate their desert origins; they celebrate the beauty of the surreal wonder and struggle caused by living in empty exhaustive heat. Natalie, Kristin, and Rose all share this similar experience, and all perceive it differently. Whether it is by photo, painting, or drawing, OUTSIDE IN HERE captures the energy extracted from our surroundings, our love ones, and personal journeys. It is the energy you will bring into the room, when you open yourself to engage with their work. This week we had some time to speak with each of the women and got an opportunity to find out what was inside that brought it to Outside in Here.”
Live performance by the really great punk band from Indio, Pagan Powers. As well as the youth led, non-profit, the Coachella Valley Burrito Project.
Good art, good music, good food, good venue and great company all around… the show proved once again that the young local art community is interested and supportive of each other. Venus Art Studio is a great venue that is allowing the young and upcoming artists of the Coachella Valley to exhibit their art and because so they are planting the seeds to a beautifully blossoming art scene & community.

These ladies matched Kristin Winter’s artwork so fabulously, I had to take a photo.
Eye contact in the crowd.
Kylie Knight singing her heart out with her band Pagan Powers backing her. *Note guy dancing in the center…so cute!
Kind of a bad photo, kind of a good photo, of Kylie Knight.
A better photo of Kylie Knight performing as a part of Pagan Powers.
Johnny 5000 is a great friend and photographer that constantly inspires me. Here he is probably taking a better photo of the band than I am.
