Why do I have to make an appointment?
We are getting this question a lot and the short answer is: We don't want you to stand in front of closed doors. We are not always at the gallery and if you call ahead (and that's all we ask) we can make sure that someone is there to show you around.
Please call (760) 346-4243 option 1. If we are at the gallery and not busy with other clients, you can always stop by.
We strive to provide you with a superior art buying experience and we want to give you our undivided attention when you visit, but we are a small team and we can only do that if we know you’re coming.
We are not a traditional retail art gallery and showing clients around the gallery is just one of the many things we do. Our days are filled with meetings in and out of the gallery, phone calls, photo/video shoots, preparations for other clients, house and construction site visits, artist studio visits, etc. Or we are in Miami, New York, San Francisco to represent our artists at an art fair, such as Art Miami every fall.
We can always try to move things around even on short notice if you give us a quick call. And that’s all we ask. Our biggest nightmare is that we have a scheduled meeting with a client and then you walk in and we cannot give you any attention. Or worse, you ring the doorbell, and we are all at your neighbor’s house installing a new work of art while you are standing in front of closed doors. (It has happened!)
So please just call (760) 346-4243 option 1 and if we are here and not busy with other clients, you can always come and have a look around.
If you are shopping for art, if you like a specific artist, if you are getting ideas for a specific space in your home or if you have a project for us, then making an appointment has great benefits:
We can set time aside for you, listen to you without rushing you through the process, and answer all your questions. We can give you access to our inventory with pricing ahead of time, so we can prepare for viewing any- and everything you would like to see in person. With more than 1,000 works of art in our inventory (the largest in the Coachella Valley), we only have very few works on display at any given time. If you allow us to be prepared for your visit, you will find it to be most enjoyable and efficient. We are always available by phone to speak before you stop by, so you can tell us what you are looking for.
I can promise you that we are very low-key, easy-going and zero pressure. There is no sales pitch, no phrases - there is only guidance, experience, and great art. My father started the gallery in 1976 out of a passion for art and I have continued in the same spirit since 1993 when I joined the family business. We love art, we are passionate about the artists we represent, and strongly believe that art cannot be sold. Instead, we feel that we can only introduce you to great art and hope that you will feel the same and fall in love with it, as we have. We are completely transparent with pricing and there are never any surprises.
Whenever possible, I will personally meet with you and if you decide to work with us, I will always be available to you.
We would love to meet you if you are considering working with us! Whether you are a casual or serious collector, art consultant, curator, museum or institution, developer, architect, interior or landscape designer – whether you are considering one work by one of our artists for your collection or you have a major project for us, please get in touch, so we can explore the possibilities! We strive to provide you with a superior art buying experience, in person and online and we look forward to hearing from you!
We are doing everything we can to provide you with a safe environment during this time. Our entire staff is vaccinated and we will wear face masks upon your request (please let us know before you arrive), keep our distance, and clean the gallery more frequently.
Palm Springs currently has a mask mandate for indoor businesses and we ask that you respect all local rules for your safety and the safety of our staff.
At our main gallery in Palm Desert, we will allow only one group of patrons in the gallery at any given time. Please call the gallery first to see if it's OK to come, even if you are just in the neighborhood. We will do our best to accommodate your visits even on short notice, but we ask that you call ahead. We know it is inconvenient having to make an appointment and we want to say thank you because we really appreciate it!
Again, thank you for calling ahead, so we can make sure you don't have to share the space with other patrons.

The gallery is a little hidden in the commercial area between Palm Desert and Indian Wells north of Hwy 111.
If you are coming from Palm Desert, take a left on Village Center Drive. If you are coming from Indian Wells/La Quinta, take a right on Village Court. The steakhouse Ruth Chris is on the same street.
Several people have told us that navigation systems don't seem to like the dash in the number, so please enter the address as "44651 Village Court", not "44-651".
If you get lost, please call (760) 346-4243.
There is ample parking in front and around the building and we provide valet parking for most events.
