Hillyard has known and spent time with more local characters than anyone else and has seen firsthand what makes these enduring and endearing characters tick.

    74055 Cottonwood Dr, Twentynine Palms, CA 92277

    EXHIBIT AT 29 PALMS ART GALLERY

    Event title: Opening Reception: “Pathways” and “Differences in Common”
    on Exhibit at the 29 Palms Art Gallery.

    Event date: Saturday, Feb. 2
    Event time: 5-7 p.m.

    TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif. (Jan. 28, 2019) – Images of figurative landscapes and abandoned desert buildings are on exhibit in paintings, multi-media works and photography at the 29 Palms Art Gallery, Jan. 31 – Feb. 24, 2019. Join the artists Janis Commentz, Hunter Johnson, Dennis Johnson, and exhibiting 29 Palms Artists’ Guild members for wine and refreshments at an opening reception, Feb. 2 from 5-7 p.m. The gallery is free and open to the public Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    “Pathways” by Janis Commentz features large and small figurative and landscape oil, acrylic and mixed media paintings that explore four decades of living in the Mojave Desert and how the human figure confronts the elements.

    “Art is a pathway to explore ourselves, our relationships with each other and our relationships to the environment,” says Commentz. “Few paths are direct; detours make our existence more interesting.”

    “Differences in Common” examines how desert artists Dennis Johnson and Hunter Johnson have explored the American West together over the last five years. (The two share the same last name but are not related). Hunter Johnson uses a mirrorless digital camera to create traditional photographic prints and photogravure etchings. Dennis Johnson is a painter, printmaker and graphic designer. Both focus on buildings and structures where man’s influence has come and gone, leaving an ephemeral mark on the landscape. Their exhibition depicts works of the same scene, from different points of view.

    The exhibitions are at the 29 Palms Art Gallery, 74055 Cottonwood Drive, Twentynine Palms. For details, visit www.29palmsartgallery.com or call 760-367-7819, Thursday – Sunday, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

    The 29 Palms Art Gallery is the oldest arts organization in the Morongo Basin and was founded by a group of desert artists and famed painter John Hilton in 1951. It is located in a historic adobe built in 1936 near the Oasis of Mara as a home for western author Tom Hopkins. Since 1963, Artists’ Guild members have operated the non-profit organization, gallery and gift shop in the adobe near Joshua Tree National Park. The gallery also hosts seasonal events and art classes for all ages. To learn more, visit www.29palmsartgallery.com

  • STAR PARTY & DIGITAL ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY AT SKY’S THE LIMIT
    6:30 PM-8:30 PM
    02-02-2019
    9697 Utah Trail, 29 Palms, CA, United States

    STAR PARTY & DIGITAL ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY AT SKY’S THE LIMIT
    Event date: Saturday, February 2
    Event time: 6:30 pm-8:30pm (approx. two hours)

    Event description: Mars and an Open Star Cluster PLUS Digital Astrophotagraphy

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to tour the desert night sky on Saturday, February 2. This free public event will start around 6:30 pm and last approximately 2 hours. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    A special guest on February 2 is Terry Honyoust, demonstrating the ZWO camera for digital astrophotography.

    Mars sets at 10:43 pm. The constellation Canis Major (Large Dog) is found below and to the left of Orion and contains the brightest star in the night sky: Sirius. It is a white star, therefore fairly young, and is one of the closest stars at 8.7 light-years away.

    Proxima Centauri, a companion to Alpha Centauri, a bright star found in Southern skies, is the closest star at 4.24 light-years distant. A space ship traveling 45,000 mph would take 40,000 years to reach the closest star. A brilliant open star cluster M41 can be found directly below Sirius. It contains about fifty stars spread across 25 light-years. With binoculars, Sirius is also in the field of view. This star cluster is 2,100 light-years away.

    Prominent constellations are Taurus (The Bull), Orion (The Hunter), Canis Major (The Large dog), Gemini (The Twins), and Auriga (The Charioteer).

    Volunteers will set up a variety of kinds and sizes of telescopes on the winding sidewalks, and guests are welcome to use them or may bring their own binoculars and scopes as well.

    The presentation is very casual, so come at any time and leave when you wish. Bring a red flashlight to preserve night vision. Dress for unpredictable desert weather and bring snacks, water bottles, and chairs.

    Please be aware that white headlights severely disturb viewing and use only parking lights as you approach the dome. Let your eyes adjust to the dark before you drive into the parking area.

    There are no overnight stays and NO CAMPING anywhere on the Observatory and Nature Center property. No pets, no smoking or alcohol allowed, and visitors must carry out all trash. Adults must accompany and take responsibility for the safety and behavior of children under 16.

    The seasonal sky is very unpredictable, and a viewing event may have to be delayed, rescheduled, or cancelled due to cloudiness, rain, or excessive wind. Check @skysthelmit29 or follow @STL29Palms to learn the latest status of an event or call Ray at 760-365-7897.

    For more information and to see photos taken through STL’s 14” Celestron Schmidt–Cassegrain telescope, visit the STL web site at www.skysthelimit29.org. STL is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Donations to support Sky’s The Limit’s educational programs are gratefully accepted.

    Event location:Sky’s the Limit Observatory & Nature Center is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    15TH ANNUAL PARADE OF HOMES

    15th Annual Parade of Homes
    Event Date: February 17, 2019
    Event Time: 11:00am – 5:00pm

    Event Description: With the upcoming 15th Annual Parade of Homes fundraiser for Reach Out Morongo Basin right around the corner, organizers are proud to announce that all homes are secured for the popular home tour. Taking place on Sunday, February 17, 2019 from 11:00am to 5:00pm, the annual event, which sees Reach Out Morongo Basin supporters from across the basin open their homes to curious visitors, the Parade of Homes is the neighbors-helping-neighbors program’s biggest fundraiser bringing in thousands of dollars in ticket sales and sponsorships every year to support its services to senior and disabled residents of the Morongo Basin.

    In a break from previous years, the 2019 line up will be featuring five homes located in Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree, and Twentynine Palms. From a home that adapts and reconstitutes spaces to a custom southwestern style home to artistic, innovative, and renovated homes, this year’s tour will be sure to delight. With expanded hours of 11:00am to 5:00pm, tour goers will have more time to thoroughly explore the offered homes and enjoy lunch at the Park Rock Café where they will be entertained by live music by The Luminators.

    Homes to be featured on the 2019 Parade of Homes include:
    Harmony Sails
    Auto Haus
    Wind Walkers
    Hummingbird Haven
    Home Sweet Homestead

    “The generosity of owners who open their homes to us is what makes this event such a success,” said Executive Director Robin Schlosser. “Growing interest and success in the recent past has homeowners eager to show their homes which range from renovated homestead cabins to astonishing architectural masterpieces. The unique qualities of each home showcase our desert community and way of life. Visitors on the tour will view five homes in the Morongo Basin each with its own story.”

  • CONSTELLATION & CLUSTERS AT SKY’S THE LIMIT
    6:30 PM-8:30 PM
    02-23-2019
    9697 Utah Trail, 29 Palms, CA, United States

    CONSTELLATION & CLUSTERS AT SKY’S THE LIMIT

    Saturday, February 23 at Sky’s The Limit:

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to tour the desert night sky on Saturday, February 23. This free public event will start around 6:30 pm and last approximately 2 hours. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    The faint constellation of Cancer is located to the east of Gemini. It is the only constellation whose brightest stars are fainter than a Messier object within its boundaries. M44, called the Beehive cluster, contains many third magnitude stars and is easily seen with the naked eye. It is 515 light-years away.

    Just below and to the east you will find M67 which is 2,600 distant and one of the

    oldest open clusters known at 4.5 billion light-years old.

    Prominent constellations are Taurus (The Bull), Orion (The Hunter), Canis Major (The Large dog), Gemini (The Twins), and Auriga (The Charioteer).

    Volunteers will set up a variety of kinds and sizes of telescopes on the winding sidewalks, and guests are welcome to use them or may bring their own binoculars and scopes as well.

    The presentation is very casual, so come at any time and leave when you wish. Bring a red flashlight to preserve night vision. Dress for unpredictable desert weather and bring snacks, water bottles, and chairs.

    Please be aware that white headlights severely disturb viewing and use only parking lights as you approach the dome. Let your eyes adjust to the dark before you drive into the parking area.

    There are no overnight stays and NO CAMPING anywhere on the Observatory and Nature Center property. No pets, no smoking or alcohol allowed, and visitors must carry out all trash. Adults must accompany and take responsibility for the safety and behavior of children under 16.

    The seasonal sky is very unpredictable, and a viewing event may have to be delayed, rescheduled, or cancelled due to cloudiness, rain, or excessive wind.  Check @skysthelmit29 or follow @STL29Palms to learn the latest status of an event or call Ray at 760-365-7897.

    For more information and to see photos taken through STL’s 14” Celestron Schmidt–Cassegrain telescope, visit the STL web site at www.skysthelimit29.org. STL is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Donations to support Sky’s The Limit’s educational programs are gratefully accepted.
