Engaged and Inspired: DEHSART

communityDEHSART is profiled on KCET Artbound.

Evan Senn-“Lancaster, Palmdale, and Apple Valley aren’t widely known as an art haven or a creative mecca. But the high desert can often be a catalyst for artists and creative types, fueling inspiration for their most innovative work.

The magic of the high desert is elusive. Perhaps, the dry, flat land of this area draws power inward, harnessing energy, and the desolation channels introspection and reflection. Alone, we create. The minimalism of the desert can frame ordinary objects in an extraordinary way. Perhaps even wayward trash and forgotten refuse can be beautiful, if only it had the right context. The desert itself becomes a canvas; an outdoor gallery of abandoned objects, assemblages created through decay and time.”
