The 22nd Annual Art Festival will feature art inspired by the Joshua Tree National Park. Located at the park’s Oasis of Mara Visitor Center, 74485 National Park Drive, Twentynine Palms, the show takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 4,5 and 6th, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
Twenty eight will be on-hand to exhibit and sell their work. Meet local and regional artists and learn what it was in their desert view that so inspired their creativity. Chuck Caplinger’s oil paintings, Mark Heuston’s metal sculpture; astro-photography by Wally Pacholka and the wildlife photos by David McChesney will be just a few of the artworks available for attendees view and purchase. Nearly every art form will be represented in the show: wood sculpture, gourd art; pottery; paintings, glass and fine jewelry – all inspired by the desert.
The Festival is sponsored by the Joshua Tree National Park Association, a non-profit organization that provides support and assistance to the park’s interpretive, educational and scientific programs. A portion of sales benefit the Association.
Festival admission is free.
