Joshua Tree Library, in partnership with the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council and Friends of the Joshua Tree Library, features Joshua Tree artist Jillian Sandell
From July 13 to September 30, 2019, Joshua Tree Library will be exhibiting works by local artist Jillian Sandell. The exhibition is a partnership of the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council and Friends of the Joshua Tree Library, and features drawings and risograph prints inspired by desert plants and landscapes.
Jillian Sandell is an educator, writer, and artist who has lived in Joshua Tree since 2016. Using different mediums (including drawing, watercolor, risograph prints, and zines) her work transforms small details from everyday life and the natural environment into compositions and narratives that help illuminate their layered histories and meanings.
On Saturday September 28, from 3-4pm, there will be a reception featuring an artist talk. Jillian will talk about how she started drawing three years ago in the midst of a health crisis, and how those early rough sketches turned into an ongoing art practice that both responds to her immediate environment and informs how she experiences the world.
