Dezart One Gallery

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

Dezart One Gallery has quickly become the most exciting art destination in Palm Springs.

The intimate interior of Dezart One Gallery has a crisp and minimal feel. The pristine white walls and concrete floors give the space a somewhat industrial feel and lend a perfect backdrop for contemporary and modern art. The gallery creates a calm and ascetic atmosphere that appeals to artists and art-lovers alike.

Dezart One Gallery showcases the works of outstanding emerging and mid-career contemporary artists. Spanning a diverse range of mediums and working with clarity of vision.

The gallery owners began with the premise of exhibiting representational and abstract artists, both of which have strong narrative elements.

Dezart One Gallery is also the place for exceptional service; we encourage questions and conversation about the art and artists. Our staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, a quality not taken for granted by frequent gallery-goers.

Both the new collector and those adding to established collections will find pieces that are sophisticated and accessible.

We at Dezart One Gallery want more people to enjoy the unique experience of collecting contemporary fine art.
