The following is a news release from the City of Palm Desert:

The Palm Desert Community Gallery features artwork from Elizabeth Chandler and Maggie Headrick, in its new exhibition, “Paper Works,” on display June 12 through August 22. The Gallery will host a public reception to honor the artists on Monday, June 23, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. 


Abstract in nature, Elizabeth Chandler’s artwork is influenced by her interest in literature, the natural surroundings, and science. She is a prolific artist who has shown her paintings extensively throughout Texas and California in solo and group exhibitions. She works in acrylic on both paper and canvas. This exhibition will highlight her works on paper. 


Since moving to the Coachella Valley in 2000, Maggie Headrick’s art has been heavily influenced by the desert and mountain landscape. Created on handmade, recycled paper to which she applies additional colors, pulp, paint, dye, or imbedded materials and photographs, her work is also almost entirely abstract with occasional hints of representation. 


The Palm Desert Community Gallery is located in Palm Desert City Hall, and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call 760-346-0611, ext. 664 or visit www.palmdesertart.org.
