Idyllwild Arts Academy presents its Spring 2022 off-site student exhibition & reception, catering to the Idyllwild Arts family of supporters in the Desert Cities. Following a hiatus during Covid-19, the Idyllwild Arts Visual Arts students are excited to return to the desert and showcase their work, marking the reintroduction of a special partnership with Melissa Morgan Fine Art Gallery, which gives students a unique taste of what it’s like to take part in the professional world of fine art. They will hold the visual arts reception at Melissa Morgan Fine Art Gallery (73-660 El Paso, Palm Desert, CA 92260), a prestigious contemporary gallery in the heart of El Paseo, on May 6 from 4 to 7 p.m.
The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will run through May 7 and will feature the year’s best visual works from students of Idyllwild Arts Academy. Curated by Visual Arts Chair Linda Santana along with the Visual Arts faculty, the exhibition showcases art from 28 artists in a variety of mediums, including painting, ceramics, mixed-media, sculpture, drawing, photography, jewelry, and printmaking. They chose 40 works as standout examples of the high level of creativity and technical accomplishment from artists in grades 9-12.
Following the reception, a special rock concert by Idyllwild Arts Academy songwriting students will take place at the Melissa Morgan Sculpture Garden from 7 to 8 pm, which is part of Melissa Morgan’s new concert series, featuring trailblazing musicians. The band, led by senior songwriting major Gabi Gamberg will perform original songs.
