Reconnect with old friends or make new ones at Art Under the Umbrellas—the Coachella Valley’s primo series of one day art shows, which gets underway Saturday at Old Town La Quinta, launching LQAF’s 2013/14 Desert Season.
The October show will also commemorate National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) as an officially registered event of NAHM 2013.
With a diverse mix of 80 talented artists exhibiting their unique artwork and fine crafts, Art Under the Umbrellas promises a sun-filled day of shopping for unique jewelry, discovering hand crafted gifts, or a special fine art piece for the home.
Old Town La Quinta's great selection of trendy boutiques and fine restaurants will round out the day's enjoyment.
The October 26th season opener will introduce 11 artists new to Art Under the Umbrellas and will spotlight some long time regulars who have committed to exhibiting at all eight shows of the 2013/14 season.
Chad Allen and Garrison Wayne of Canvas in the Garden are known for their award winning hand-painted designs on canvas.
Darlene Goins is as colorful and vibrant as the wild cache of jewelry she displays in her booth located at the Desert Club entrance to Old Town La Quinta. Her smile is worth a thousand words!
Penelope Krebs is a master in the art of painting her beloved, delicate birds with incredible precision using watercolors.
