PALM DESERT, CA – In its first exhibitions of 2020, CODA Gallery is pleased to present "Brett Lethbridge + Friends from Down Under." In addition to a solo exhibition of his new paintings, Australian Artist Brett Lethbridge curates another exhibition of six artists' work from his art gallery in Brisbane. The two shows begin with an artists' reception on Friday, January 3, from 5-8 pm in conjunction with El Paseo Art Walk/Palm Desert First Weekend, and continue through January 24.
A long-time CODA top talent, Brett Lethbridge is a multi-award-winning artist with an international reputation for his boundless creative energy. His work ranges from the sublime and beautiful linework of his drawings to the vivid richness and exquisite detail of his large paintings. New paintings will be unveiled in the exhibition which showcase his signature style, and Brett will be present for the Friday opening reception as well as four other artists from Australia.
Having finished a degree in law, Lethbridge took hold of his vocation and began drawing and painting in 1998. Winning numerous awards and on the encouragement of his friends, Brett decided to extend his artistic pursuits in Europe. A year in Siena, Italy was followed by numerous international exhibitions including Singapore, Germany, and the U.S. Returning to Australia, Brett continued to develop his vision and artistic creations with passion, energy and commitment resulting in the opening of the Lethbridge Gallery in May of 2004.
CODA Gallery opened on El Paseo in 1987 and offers a thoughtfully-curated collection of work by emerging, midcareer, and established artists. Located at 73400 El Paseo in Palm Desert, the gallery is open Monday through Saturday, 10-6; and Sunday, 11-5. For more information, call 760-346-4661 or visit codagallery.com.
