Borrego Springs nurtures a large community of artists – painters, sculptors, photographers, jewelry-makers, potters, actors, writers, dancers, singers, and musicians. Their many talents enrich our individual and community lives, and we welcome the opportunity to support them.
See and appreciate their work at local venues and events.
Art at the Inn
The Borrego Valley Inn's guest building also serves as a gallery featuring the work of some of California's most-noted plein air artists. Many of the works on display are created at the bi-annual “Art at the Inn," a four-day invitational event that attracts leading plein air artists and showcases their freshly-created paintings in daily showings and in a final gala sales reception.
The most-recent Art at the Inn occurred November 7-11, 2012 and featured a special artists' reception exclusively for our guests, and a public reception on Saturday, Nov. 10. Watch for the next Art at the Inn!
