"A Palm Springs Panoply" - New Works by Tug Rice

Beginning April 6, 2018 and running through May 13, 2018, the Grace Home Gallery is pleased to present the first West Coast exhibition of new works by artist Tug Rice. 

Rice is an illustrator based in New York City. Working both digitally and with traditional watercolors, Rice is endlessly inspired by Manhattan and its colorful cast of characters. A self-taught artist, Rice has collaborated most recently on projects with Thom Sweeney, Vogue Poland, Rowing Blazers, Olof1982, and He Spoke Style. He is also an artist in residence at the Ace Hotel in New York.

This is the first exhibit of contemporary artwork for the Grace Home Gallery, which is known for displaying modern photographers from the 1940s through the 1970s such as Slim Aarons and Bert Stern. The exhibit will run through May 13, 2018. The artist will be present on Sunday, April 8, from 12pm-3pm. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 12pm-5pm.

Founded in 2017, the Grace Home Gallery is located at 1003 North Palm Canyon Drive, in the vibrant Uptown Design District and adjacent to the renowned interior design and furniture showroom Grace Home Furnishings. 

Michael Ostrow and Roger Stoker are the creative forces behind Grace Home Furnishings and the Grace Home Gallery. The duo founded their first showroom in Los Angeles in 2000, the second showroom followed in Palm Springs in 2014 and the Gallery opened in 2017. Their work has been featured in Traditional Home, House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, LUXE, Angeleno, Los Angeles Magazine and the Los Angeles Times.

Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation at the Palm Springs Art Museum

Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation at the Palm Springs Art Museum

  • Palm Springs Art Museum (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
Art-1.jpg

Andy Warhol harnessed the power of celebrity, consumer goods, sex, and disaster to create his iconic Pop Art—and the foundation of his extraordinary career was in printmaking. This retrospective encompasses over 250 works on loan from Schnitzer’s comprehensive collection, and establishes Warhol’s graphic production as it evolved over four decades. The exhibition explores his nearly singular use of the silkscreen process, which established Warhol as a creative provocateur. Spanning the museum’s two major main-floor exhibition galleries, it features instantly recognizable images such as Campbell’s Soup Can (Tomato) and Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn), alongside unique dresses, early graphic ephemera, and rare books. Warhol’s well-known fascination with popular culture instills the exhibition with a chronicle of American life, while anticipating the evolution of today’s hyper-saturated visual culture.
