Wednesday – Sunday, 10 am – 4 pm
For the first time since March the Desert Art Center will resume operating the Gallery 3 days a week, launching a new show featured works by our juried member artists. We unfortunately will not be hosting opening receptions until we are advised that it is safe to do so.
Visitors will find Covid safety protocols and sanitizing stations in place, and entrance to the galley will be controlled so as to accommodate distancing guidelines. In compliance with City of Palm Springs, there will be no admission to the gallery without a face mask.
Located on Palm Canyon Drive, The Desert Art Center’s Main Gallery offers juried member artists the opportunity to show their work in the heart of Palm Springs. Artwork from a wide variety of media are represented here – photography, jewelry, glasswork, ceramics, fiber arts, mosaic, weaving, as well as the traditional fine art mediums of acrylic and oil painting. Juried Members are invited to submit artwork for 5 new shows each season, or every 2 months. Each new show is launched with an Opening Reception with music and refreshments.
Our newly renovated Studio gallery provides a sunny and bright space for smaller exhibits including Featured Artist shows and High School Scholarship shows. Featured Artist Shows take place every First Friday, corresponding with the openings in the Main Gallery every 2 months for big opening night occasions. The Studio Gallery is also used to host demos, speakers and presentations. Join DAC to get our email bulletins and announcements of show openings and events.
