Encircled by ancient oaks, the canyon setting for Art on Palm is a restorative venue for guests and a stunning backdrop for the artists’ works. According to the event’s co-producer Mary Jane Elgin, “Art on Palm achieves many goals. It selects exceptional artists whose beautifully-realized works attract a discerning clientele to a foothill canyon of remarkable beauty, supports our local economy and raises funds for the West L.A. Fisher House.”
Since 2006, Art on Palm artists have donated a portion of their sales to this organization; which provides humanitarian support for hospitalized military personnel and their families. “The West L.A. Fisher House acknowledges the generosity of the Art on Palm artists. For the past five years, their contributions have helped to provide much-needed and much-appreciated humanitarian relief to members of our military and their families at the West Los Angeles Fisher House. We look forward to their continued support for this vital community”, commented Tim Byk, Founder/Executive Director, West L.A. Fisher House Foundation.
