The opening of the Creativity in La Quinta Cove exhibit has charmed and delighted the local community. Highlighting the magical gifts of 34 local artists and craftsmen, all of whom reside within the boundaries of the La Quinta Cove, this exhibit will run through December 22, 2012. The La Quinta Museum is located in the historic La Quinta Cove and the exhibit is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 AM until 4 PM. You will want to make this a family event that is not to be missed.
The La Quinta Cove has always been a special place. It is with good reason that many in the desert believe the Cove is located in a special vortex of energy in which artists are able to connect with unique imaginative and creative vibrations. Given the caliber of the artistic exhibits on display this month, there may well be truth to that ideology. Original paintings in every medium, sculptures, and even quilts are just part of the one-of-a-kind offerings visitors will be treated to.
A local artist who works in wood utilizes materials native to the Cove to create platters, bowls and other one-of-a-kind pieces. There is no limit to the human imagination and Creativity in La Quinta Cove proves it. This exhibit is the sort of event that brings the community together, highlighting as it does the talents of our local residents. Everyone knows the Cove is a retreat of physical beauty, surrounded by the Santa Rosa Mountains and graced with abundant flora and fauna. What few may never have suspected was the degree of artistic talent that also resides here.
The La Quinta Museum venue itself, with its charming courtyard and early Spanish architecture is worth a visit all on its own. Throughout the year the La Quinta Museum, often in conjunction with the La Quinta Historical Society hosts prominent artists, provides a forum for local art exhibits, educates children, and unites the community with gala events. The Museum is also home to historic artifacts from the La Quinta area as well as traveling exhibits. The community meeting room features a breathtaking mural of La Quinta, painted by world-class artist Andre Blanche. The beautiful image has proven so popular that it has also been placed on coffee mugs which are sold in the museum gift shop.
The gift and souvenir shop is always a popular destination before departing. Admission to the La Quinta Museum remains free so that everyone in the Coachella Valley may enjoy its beauty. October in the desert is always of festive and active time of year. Be sure to visit the La Quinta Museum and enjoy the Creativity in the La Quinta Cove exhibit while it lasts.
