La Quinta’s Art Under The Umbrellas Kicks Off New Season

"Art Under The Umbrellas" Shows, Held In Charming Old Town La Quinta, Are Extremely Popular Events.

La Quinta Arts Foundation launched its 30th Anniversary season with the return of Art Under The Umbrellas on Saturday, October 29 set along the streets and lawn of Old Town La Quinta. Musician Steve Madaio & Friends entertained art patrons throughout the day as they strolled art-lined streets, and visited the many boutique shops and restaurants offered by Old Town La Quinta.

The seventh season opener hosted a total of 77 artists presenting newly created works in painting, glass, ceramic, jewelry, wood, sculpture, photography, fiber, and mixed media, including seventeen new artists selected to be introduced to patrons this season. This is a giant leap from the first “Umbrella” show that included only 24 exhibitors. Seven more events in the 2011/12 series are planned for select Saturdays, including November 26, and December 3, 2011; January 14, February 11 & 18, March 24, and  March 31, 2012.

“The growth of Art Under The Umbrellas has been one of La Quinta Arts Foundation’s most remarkable success stories,” stated La Quinta Arts Foundation Executive Director Christi Salamone. “Initiated with the intent to offer local and emerging artists a viable venue to professionally exhibit their art work, while honing community partnerships, this event has been a major stepping stone in many artists’ careers.”

La Quinta Arts Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization founded in 1982 driven by its mission of “Promoting and Cultivating the Arts.” In alliance with its Premier Sponsor, the City of La Quinta, La Quinta Arts Foundation provides a year round schedule of cultural events and programs benefiting students, artists, residents, and visitors in La Quinta and the greater Palm Springs area.
