Idyllwild Arts Visual Arts Reception at Melissa Morgan Fine Art Gallery on May 5 at 4pm 

May 5, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Idyllwild Arts Academy debuts its Spring 2023 off-site student exhibition with a reception on Friday, May 5. The Idyllwild Arts Visual Arts students are excited to show their work once again to the desert audience, providing students with a unique taste of what it’s like to participate in the professional world of fine art. The visual arts reception will be held at Melissa Morgan Fine Art Gallery (73-660 El Paseo, Palm Desert, CA 92260), a prestigious contemporary gallery in the heart of El Paseo, on Friday, May 5 from 4-7 p.m. Following the reception, gallery visitors can walk a block to the gallery’s outdoor sculpture garden for the student songwriting concert featuring original compositions from rock, pop, and alternative to R&B and progressive soul.

The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will also be on view on Saturday, May 6 from 10am to 5pm and will feature the year’s best visual works from the pioneering arts high school that has been changing lives through the transformative power of art for more than 70 years. Curated by Visual Arts Department Chair Linda Santana along with the Visual Arts faculty, the exhibition showcases over 50 works of art from 35 students, which were chosen as standout examples of the high level of creativity and technical accomplishment from artists in grades 9-12. With the extraordinary generosity of Melissa Morgan Fine Art, all of the artwork in the exhibition will be for sale, with 100% of the proceeds going to the artist and to the Visual Arts Department at Idyllwild Arts.
