Wonder Valley Arts

Andy Woods

Dune Magazine Feb-Mar 2008

Becoming one of the most important art advocates for the Joshua Tree Communities Woods quietly arrived to the desert. After 18 months of incubation Fi-Lox-See and Wonder Valley Arts emerged to lend a helping hand to local artists. While Andy Woods did not show his work in the gallery a very beautiful and deserving homestead photograph of his was used in Dune Magazine's February March 2008 first annual Architectural issue for the feature on the Wonder Valley Homestead Cabin Festival! Also pictured are works by fellow co-founders Chris Carraher and Scott Monteith, on display in the gallery.

“It’s with a sense of aesthetic-historic juxtaposition, and a bit of mischief, that we’ve placed our story about the cabins adjacent to writer Lydia Kremer’s beautifully illustrated feature on renowned architectural photographer Julius Shulman. The subjects of these two articles aren’t so mutually exclusive: Both are observing 70-year anniversaries, and they’ve contributed substantially in their respective ways to local culture. It’s worth noting that some folks have taken to remodeling their old High Desert homesteads in the Mid-Century Modern style exalted by Shulman’s brilliant Palm Springs record. The desert may be a study in contrasts, but its underlying interrelationships and shared influences keep it fascinating.” – Dean Lamanna, Executive Editor, Dune Magazine
