Portland Paints Palm Springs:A Plein Air Exhibition

Portland Paints Palm Springs

One year in the works and it is time to present 9 oil paintings in an upcoming group show "Portland Paints the Desert" at Brian Marki Gallery in Palm Springs.
Each artist has spent time painting works in the warm California desert amongst the rocks, cacti, palms and springs this past year. We will also be unveiling larger studio works that were inspired from our plein air pieces, so there is a size for every space and taste. Hope to see you there!

Portland Paints Palm Springs:A Plein Air Exhibition

Eric Bowman, Brenda Boylan, Scott Gellatly, Thomas Kitts, Michael Orwick, and Anton Pavlenko join forces to show the beautiful Palm Springs area through their work. Join us to see their work through April 8.

We have been lucky to have some of the Pacific Northwest's best plein air artists visiting us here in Palm Springs. Each of these talented professionals has painted Palm Springs and scenes from the surrounding desert. Our "Portland Paints Palm Springs" show opens this month featuring work from all six: Eric Bowman, Brenda Boylan, Scott Gellatly, Thomas Kitts, Michael Orwick, and Anton Pavlenko. Please stop by the gallery for the opening reception on Friday March 13, or for painting demonstrations on Wednesday April 1 and 8. The exhibition goes through April 8.
