2016 Art on Palm

Jun 14, 2016

IMG_5083One of the art events we love to attend is the biannual Art on Palm held down the hill in a secluded nook called Wildwood Park. It’s small, intimate, and full of arts and crafts from painters, tile makers, and ceramicists to jewelers, weavers, and clothing designers.

It’s hard to choose what humorous tile we “need” this year from Tracy and Soozee’s Ramona Paloma. Or maybe we’ll splurge for one of Ellen Dinerman’s pressed tin necklaces or take home one of the simplistically beautiful creations by Leo Got. We might also have our eye on a Hannie Gold ceramic and pine needle basket that are as much art as useful. With summer heat approaching, a colorful, expressive Flora Dora hat may be in order, too. (We’d better get an early start!)

Art on Palm, a biannual art event, began in 2004 with 7 classmates, in the charming Altadena backyard garden of artist Mary Jane Elgin.

Conceived by and for artists, Art on Palm now accommodates more than 40 artists and musicians and refreshments in an equally lovely, but considerably larger canyon garden, Wildwood Park. This setting, with its canopy of ancient oaks, pathways winding around homes renovated and designed by Henry Greene, harken back to Southern California of the 1920’s. Though Art on Palm has grown and moved from its original home, it has retained a commitment to present work that is refined, diverse and locally handcrafted, making Art on Palm one of the finest boutique art events in Los Angeles.
