From the ‘20s into the ‘60s, Palm Springs defined Western chic. We plan to contribute some creative synergy with the current businesses to re-infuse that sense of chic in this era.

Whether you have never yet bought a work of art or you are an international collector, there will be something ‘to die for’ at Palm Springs Arts Festival. One of America’s most collected artists; Amado Peña, Jr of Santa Fe will be our Featured Artist for this Premiere show. Amado's art, http://www.penagallery.com, celebrates the strength of the Native American peoples of the Southwest, who met the harsh realities of life in an uncompromising land. His work is a tribute to those who survived by living in harmony with an adversarial, untamed environment.
A recipient of many honors during his more than 30 years as a professional artist, Amado is also an art teacher and an adjunct professor of University of Texas who strongly promotes arts education for our young people.
