PALM SPRINGS, CA – An exhibition of local artist’s work will benefit The LGBT Community Center of the Desert (The Center). The exhibit titled A Night of Form & Function will open on Friday, July 5, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m., at Highestform Gallery. The gallery is located at 668 N. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs. A portion of proceeds from artwork sold will be donated to the NestEggg at The Center Food Bank. The Center’s food bank serves up to 275 families per week, filling a vital need in the community.
Robert D’ Amour, owner of Highest Form Gallery commented “I've decided to only represent local artists from the Coachella Valley and couldn't help notice the talent of fine art out here, as well as the strength of The Center’s organization. I like the idea that people in need are being fed through their efforts. The Center is an organization that I and all artists I represent are proud and thrilled to support. I think of it as karma, local artists helping a local organization.”
Exhibiting artists include:
Steve Webster is a sculptor residing in Indio. His work has been sold to private collections and galleries throughout North America.
Ryan Motel Campbell is a multi-media artist residing in Palm Desert. His work includes murals, installations and abstract portraits.
Heath Scott Campbell is a Palm Desert photographer. Much of his work demonstrates brilliant color and texture with a straight forward vantage point of items found in nature.
Brian Wilson is a mixed-media painter residing in Palm Springs. The unique geography and climate of the Southwest influence his current work.
Sheri L Robinson devotes her time between Joshua Tree and Los Angeles. Her bold works on canvas have been collected from coast to coast, often used by interior designers for showroom installations.
Matt Opoien is a painter whose abstract works create strong emotion. His works do not necessarily represent any true form or structure, presenting the viewer with an opportunity to examine their own psyche.
The LGBT Community Center of the Desert is a 501[c]3 nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of the entire LGBT community in the Coachella Valley through health, wellness, and social and educational programming to benefit members of all ages and backgrounds. The Center advances its mission through a clinical counseling and internship program, a weekly NestEggg Food Bank, senior programming, youth anti-bullying and suicide prevention/support programs, extensive social and recreational offerings, computer training in the David Bohnett Cyber Center, a growing volunteer program and signature special events in the community for its members and allies.
