The gallery is small but the quality of the exhibits are spectacular. The grounds and sculpture gardens are well done. An entirely different experience from the main galley in Palm Springs.

There are some good pieces here, and one main benefit is that there is free admission and plenty of free parking. Located very well on the main drag through Palm Desert

There was one exhibit at the time we visited and it was fabulous. The landscaping and gardens in the back of the building were outstanding. We loved the place and felt it was worth the visit.

We arrived here late afternoon on a Thursday and spent several hours admiring canvas prints, blown glass and unusual pieces of artwork. The admission was free as well as free parking. Would return if we came back to this area.
