  • Sunset at Mojave Desert in Twentynine Palms, CA

Black Rock Nature Center | July 10 – August 27

Joshua Tree National Park management is pleased to announce a new art exhibition by former Mojave National Preserve Artist in Residence, Natalie Larsen. Land Escape is a series of works on paper about her 2019 residency. Through intricate and layered drawings, Larsen creates a rich depiction of the Mojave Desert.

As the descendent of Mormon pioneers, Larsen has struggled with the complex history present in the desert landscape and her inheritance of its legacy; however, she says, “when I spend time in the desert, I feel at peace.” A Pittsburg native, she still finds herself creating work about the desert and her family’s ties to its settlement.

She was an artist-in-residence prior to the 2020 fires, and this body of work is a memorial to the Mojave as it was in 2019. Spending significant time in the Cima Dome area, so many of her drawings are of places that are very different now. “It was important to me to work from a place of remembrance for what I saw in 2019… There is a genre in art called ‘Memento Mori,’ paintings and drawings that reflect on mortality… For me, these drawings serve as Momento Mori for the Mojave.”

The exhibition will run from July 10, 2022, until August 27, 2022, at the Black Rock Art Gallery in the Black Rock Nature Center. Located at 9800 Black Rock Canyon Rd, Yucca Valley, CA 92284, the building is open weekend hours only, Friday–Monday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Sand in My Shoe: Summer in the Mojave is the theme for the summer Art in Public Places exhibition at Twentynine Palms Visitor Center and Gallery, which will be on display from June 4 through July 29, 2022.

The artwork of this show reflects the theme of summer in our Mojave Desert and is expressed in painting, photography, mixed media, and 3-Dimensional work. The theme honors the late Helen Bagley’s book, Sand in My Shoe. The book chronicles the family’s homesteading days in Twentynine Palms starting in 1927, their challenges in creating a home, businesses, and community in the hot, dry, and sandy desert, and how they learned to adapt to and love life in the Mojave.

The opening day for the show is Saturday, June 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Twentynine Palms Visitor Center and Gallery.

In addition to the exhibition, Art in Public Places is spotlighting historical Mural #10, featuring homesteaders Frank and Helen Bagley and The Bagley Store, now the site of the Historic Plaza in Twentynine Palms.
