    Canvas art paintings by Agnes Pelton, whose fame continues to grow more than a half-century after her death, will be displayed throughout City Hall for a three-month show to draw attention to the artist and the place she called home.

     

    Public Arts Commission chairwoman Marilyn Cooper said the initial plan was to hang a couple of her pieces in one room, but as she found more and more collectors willing to loan pieces for the exhibit, it became clear “this is bigger than just the council chambers.”

     

    “Channeling Agnes Pelton” will run from April 6 through June 27, and include up to 18 canvases to be shown on the second and third floors of City Hall, which will encompass the portraits and landscapes she painted for a living as well as the more abstract images she found most fulfilling.

     

    “She was very interested in painting the other side, what was inside of things, the ethereal,” said Peter Palladino, who with his partner Simeon Den owns the house at 68-680 F Street Pelton built in 1939 and lived in until shortly before she died in 1961.

     

    Pelton was a struggling artist through most of her time in the desert, but began to rise in prominence with a 1995 Palm Springs Art Museum show that was later taken on tour.“She is an emerging artist, and people who purchase her work now will be at an advantage,” Cooper said.

     

    Pelton is often grouped with contemporaries like Georgia O’Keefe and other transcendentalist painters who were based in New Mexico, though she did not spend much time in that southwestern state. Long-distance, Pelton helped form a Transcendentalist Painters Group around the time she moved to Cathedral City.

     

    Pelton and O’Keefe’s work were featured together in an exhibit in the Orange County Museum of Art, and Pelton was called “California’s Georgia O’Keefe“ in a lecture given in Cathedral City last March as part of the Deserts capes series of events around plain air art.

     

    Asiaartshop: Cooper said the commission’s primary goal with this exhibit is to get Pelton recognized by the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. Cooper said Friday she’d just been told the museum does have a file on Pelton, but doesn’t know if any of her work is included in its collection.
