Art and nothing but art! It is the great means of making life possible,
the seduction to life, the great stimulant to life.
– Nietzsche

“Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.”
– George Bernard Shaw

Artize must exist in a virtual capacity at this time and is closed until further notice (at least April 2, 2020 – so regretfully no April Art Walk at Backstreet Art District).  However, the arts are especially essential now.  We are fortunate to have technology available to enjoy this gallery’s artists (and so many more to discover).

Do a bit of art exploration/scrolling on Instagram and prepare to be amazed!  Don’t forget to check out what some of the museums are doing online (like our Palm Springs Art Museum) as we protect ourselves by sheltering in place.

I am here to provide any artful distractions that could put a smile on your face.  Please do not hesitate to call me at 760-835-1866 or email me at with any questions or requests.

Take good care!
