Art Festival and Benefit, Whitewater Preserve
We were invited to participate again in the Whitewater Preserve's "A Matter of Taste" Art Festival and Benefit this past weekend (April 13 and 14). The event was held on the beautiful grounds of the Whitewater Preserve, located north of Palm Springs.
There were about 20 local artists featured and the works for sale included sculpture, gourd art, photography, illustrations, painting, wood working and lots more.
In addition to the art exhibit and sale, there were other activities: making fish prints, nature journaling, a photography workshop, and plenty of hiking.
Live music was provided both days by The Shadow Mountain Band.
Participating artists each donated a piece of art that was offered in the live and silent auctions, and a "pick your prize" raffle. We contributed a "Bird Lover's Bonanza Basket" which included an Apple Gourd Bird House, a Peanut Butter/Suet Feeder, a block of Suet, and some homemade Mockingbird Muffins.
All proceeds from the event support conservation and education at The Wildlands Conservancy's three desert preserves: Mission Creek, Pioneertown Mountains and Whitewater.
