In case you haven’t noticed, Cathedral City is undergoing a vast and splendid Renaissance — thanks in large part to the new administration at City Hall: savvy and creative members such as Shelley Kaplan, Alan Carvalho, Peter Palladino and Simeon Den. And Perez Rd. Business Park is fast becoming Perez Rd. Art Park, thanks to Property Manager Phyllis Mongiello and Goble Properties.  There are currently eight Art galleries and more opening every month.  Photographers, craftsmen, painters and sculptors have relocated their workshops to the Perez Rd. Business Park, such as Gary Kott’s Creative Workshop and Taylor Sherrill Photography Studio.

Colin Fisher relocated here from Chicago and opened a beautiful studio/gallery right in the middle of the business park. Colin, with his impeccable taste and eye for great art has collected and assembled fine art, antiques, and many other Objets d’art in his studios. In addition, a look at his website will take the serious art collector to, where there is a cornucopia of amazing art available. Colin Fisher’s art collectors fly in from all over the United States and Canada, and from Paris, Switzerland, London, and everywhere in between. Like most of the galleries here in the desert, gallery viewing is By Appointment Only in the summer months.  I personally am looking forward to Colin Fisher’s Fall Exhibitions, where not only does he meet and greet you, but so do his beloved animals:  Gilligan the cat and Molly the dog!
