La Quinta Art Celebration jury process is complete and 200 top domestic and international artists will be participating in the March 2-5, 2023 event at the 13.5 acre La Quinta Civic Center Campus. The indoor/ outdoor show features the stunning landscape and architecture of the venue. This, the first of two high profile Art festivals in La Quinta in 2023. A silver lining of Covid is the expansion of the event, offering stellar art appreciation twice a year! This is the Coachella Valley’s signature art event presented by SCOPE Events, LLC, with the full support of the City of La Quinta, the premier sponsor. The artists exhibit their original artworks in styles ranging from classical to whimsical and spanning 12 media categories: 2D Mixed Media, 3D Mixed Media, Ceramics, Digital Art, Drawing & Pastel, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Wood.
Featured Artists for the March Celebration are Chris Dellorco— native Angeleno and UC Berkeley graduate— as poster artist with oil painting titled “Celebration”. Self-taught, Dellorco has made a name for himself as a preeminent illustrator specializing in the film industry, children’s products and children’s books and working as a top creator for Disney. Event T-shirts will feature wild horses painted by Tom Boatright from Olympia, Washington in an abstract impressionistic style. Boatright was born in Palm Springs and now returns to the desert as a part-time resident and gallery owner in La Quinta. Our inaugural featured artist, Kue King is an internationally renowned Filipino sculptor who transforms wire into intricately abstract sculpture. His work explores the intersection of craft, design, fine art and modernism, and King finds the inner peace he’s searched the world for within his own hands.
To elevate the unparalleled art experience, the Celebration will complement the creative feast by offering gourmet dining from esteemed local restaurants. Premium beverages will be served at Celebration Bistro, Champagne Bar, Winery Experience, The Oasis Lounge, Palm Tree Bar Lounge and lakeside at the Don Julio Margarita Bar. Live music will enhance the art filled experience.
