A Vibrant City
Palm Springs has it all
May 9, 2017
The Palm Springs area has always had a significant art culture associated with it. From early settlers who found inspiration in the rugged landscape to modern artists who showcase their work here, you will find unique art pieces composed of many different mediums within the art galleries in Palm Springs. There are three distinct areas within Palm Springs where you’ll find a higher concentration of art galleries: the Uptown District, the Downtown Area and the Backstreet Art District.
The Uptown District
Woodman/Shimko Gallery has as its tagline: Provincetown to Palm Springs, 3000 miles of art. The gallery features photography, sculpture and paintings from local artists residing on both coasts. Artists on display include photographers Jeff Palmer and Bobby Miller, ceramic artist Paul Bellardo, and painters Austin Calloway and Chet Jones, plus many other artists. Woodman/Shimko gallery is located at 1105 N. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs.
Haya Art Gallery & Gift Collection is an experience in photograms, color and surrealism. A photogram is a complex process where light and filters are used to project an object directly on photographic paper. The effect is an artistic expression that produces a surreal image and opens up a variety of design options. You can also find and purchase collectibles from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation at the gallery store. Haya Art Gallery is located at 1007 N Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs.
The Downtown Area
Established in 1986, Stewart Galleries is a premier source for decorators, designers and collectors alike who value the latest trends. An extensive collection of coastal and desert landscapes highlights the masters of noted Plein Air and California Impressionist artists. Don’t miss the large collection of Majolica in the English, American and Continental styles. Stewart Galleries can be found at 191 S Indian Canyon Drive in Palm Springs.
Known for showing premier, cutting edge artists, Geras Tousignant Gallery has been representing contemporary, traditional and classic designs since 1998. You will find both American and international artists represented through various media including fine glass, paintings, photography and sculpture. The gallery also offers consultation services for corporate and private clients. Geras-Tousignant Gallery can be found 278 N. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs.
The Backstreet Art District
Fusion Art is conceived out of a passion for artists and the art they create.
