The 29 Palms Creative Center & Gallery was born
in the fall of 2003, when proprietress, artist &
educator, Gretchen Grunt, made her life long dream
come true. The Creative Center is open to the public
everyday of the week from 10am to 6pm, Sundays
until 3pm, & by appointment for art after dark.
The art gallery exhibits local talents with jewelry, fabric
art, pottery, stained glass, desert nuances & the
recent art created by the studio artists
who work on the premises.
