To advance the knowledge of and interest in the creative arts; maintain a permanent art gallery in the community of Twentynine Palms, California; and foster a spirit of cooperation and fellowship between the artist and the public by every appropriate means.
The 29 Palms Art Gallery is owned and operated by the Twentynine Palms Artists’ Guild. The Guild is the oldest arts organization in the Joshua Tree Gateway Communities, and was founded in 1951-1952 by a group of prominent desert artists, including famed painter John Hilton. The gallery is located in a historic adobe building originally built in 1936 as a desert home for author Tom Hopkins. Today, the 29 Palms Art Gallery features monthly art shows and receptions from September to June and is open Wednesday through Sunday 12 to 3pm; with a Summer Show running from June through August, weekends only, Friday through Sunday 12- 3pm. The Gallery also features weekly paint outs, judged exhibitions, seasonal events and fundraisers, and art classes for children and adults. There is also a gift shop on premises, which has financially supported the Gallery over the years. The Twentynine Palms Artists’ Guild is an all-volunteer, 501 (c )(3) non-profit organization, which means that the Gallery is staffed 100% by volunteers. As such, we are always looking to bring in more docents to work in the art gallery and gift shop, but all docents and board members must be members of the gallery. Guild membership is open to all artists and all art appreciators. The Gallery provides a space for the local artist community to show and sell their work, as well as network, take and/or teach art classes, and become involved in the local community.
