The Savage Gallery

We just love Shawn Savage’s collection! Besides being one of Palm Springs’ most important resident artists, he is also a fabulous collector of original mid mod pieces. It’s no wonder he has become one of Southern California’s most sought-after artists and the go-to guy for top interior designers. His art is in dozens of our homes and we were lucky enough to have him do the mural in the West Elm Pool House 2018! Next time you’re in town check out his cool and hip gallery located in The Shops at 1345.

Mod City Gallery

Located in the heart of Palm Springs, Richard Prescott’s Mod City Gallery offers a fresh take on mid-century inspired contemporary art. His work features pop art, vintage personalities, geometric patterns and abstract expressionism – and we love it so much that we have several of his pieces throughout some of our homes! Aren’t the pieces pictured above in the West Elm Pool House 2018 just so cool?

We love Imageville! It’s Palm Springs photographer Gary Dorothy’s fabulous gallery. You’ll be impressed by his keen eye and amazing ability to capture beauty! Stop by next time you’re in town and pick up a few of his unique framed fine art pieces or decorative canvases featuring local landmarks and landscapes.
