Palm Springs Life ART + CULTURE keeps you on the cutting edge while celebrating Coachella Valley’s rich arts heritage.

The Coachella Valley is a brilliant tapestry of visual and performing arts — a destination rich in world-class art and entertainment. This issue of Palm Springs Life ART+CULTURE celebrates eight artists who live, work, and exhibit within the perimeter of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, as well as a few from outside the area who bring their art into our desert this season.

One “outsider” is Betty Gold, a Venice-based sculptor who has four large-scale works in the Coachella Valley — two at Palm Springs Art Museum, one (on loan from the museum) at CSU San Bernadino’s Palm Desert Campus, and one at College of the Desert. Gold, 70, returns from Palma de Mallorca, Spain — where she was feted with a 35-year retrospective — for a January exhibition of two new series of sculptures at Buschlen Mowatt Galleries in Palm Desert. We caught up with the sculptor prior to her retrospective exhibition (“The New Gold Standard,” page 40).
