Opening Reception: Saturday April 13, 3-7pm

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." –Henry David Thoreau
Outpost Projects is pleased to present works by Claire Colette, Emily Endo, Michael Endo, Matt Roberts and Heidi Schwegler. Each of these artists have chosen the desert - rather than the woods - to be their permanent residence or a place to frequent. Whether for the solitude, the beauty of its flora and fauna, its creative community or as a place suited to live life on one's own terms, each have recently committed to make work in this powerfully magical and alien landscape. In partnership with the Joshua Treenial. Outpost Projects is an artist-run exhibition space and live in gallery located in the high desert of California, near the village and National Park of Joshua Tree. The site includes a renovated jackrabbit homestead cabin on five acres of pristine desert filled with Joshua trees and dramatic skies.
