For the most part, good works of art have the capacity to reach beneath the veil of language and tug at things we struggle to express with words. The desert of the Yucca Valley outside of Joshua Tree is an expression of silence, which is dwindling. This is a desert, which gives us a glimpse of the wilderness that was and pointedly exposes the pace, volume and intensity of a more urban life. Of Silence is an effort to express a deep appreciation for a place in time.
Of Silence brings together the work of five west coast artists each exhibiting in the High Desert for the first time.
