A place for people who are interested in art. Not a big selectiom here, but the friendly artists lead you through their work, paintings, photography and other pieces of art.

Basically a strip center that was predominantly closed. NOT an art DISTRICT at all. Misleading. Disappointing and a waste of time.

Located just off East Palm Canyon, this collection of art galleries will delight your imagination and curiosity. Ceramics, glass, wood, metal and paintings can be found here. Plenty of parking. Typically open Thursday through Sunday. Artists are friendly and open to discussing their work.

We literally just stumbled upon this artsy smorgasbord by following signage from E Palm Canyon, but imho, it should be in the top ten things to do in Palm Springs. There are about a dozen shops representing all mediums of art and you can meet/watch...More
