The Savage Galley and Boutique's "Savage Super Show" was held in Palm Springs on Saturday, September 17th, and was nothing less than a spectacular success. Nine different dedicated, well-known artists, representing a wide range of creative media, exhibited skillful works which were visually awe-inspiring and a significant indication of the kind of exceptional local and international talent to be found in this gallery's roster of shows. From a two-year-old watercolorist newcomer to an eighty-seven-year-old award-winning assemblage artist, from the outrageous to the sublime -- art stars shone brightly. Beautiful hand-made jewelry was worn by some attendees, designed by one of the artists. Original music was created especially for the night and played as a backdrop. Dozens of enthusiastic guests swirled about the spacious gallery, taking in the sights of an expert presentation, enjoying the free open bar (including aged champagne) and sumptuous food (including home-made chocolate cheesecake), and meeting one interesting person after another. Joining the festivities were celebrities such as charming Internationally-known photographer John Palatinus, whose own Savage Gallery show will be announced in the near future. Several art works were sold that evening, as well as boutique items, including a hand-carved wooden goddess figure from the Brother Andy Collection, a rustic one-of-a-kind "stick" table and Chinese-style folding chairs. Best of all, the show raised hundreds of dollars and social awareness for the Mizell Senior Center in Palm Springs through generous donations and portions of the sales of artworks. The event was sponsored by PalmSpringsArtHome.com. You won't find this kind of art event anywhere else in the Coachella Valley , including the most prestigious galleries and museums. What makes the difference? The "Super Show" proved that Savage's open-door policy to professional artists searching for a quality venue to express themselves, combined with an emphasis on promoting community-consciousness and social networking, makes Savage Gallery and Boutique, by far, the most forward-thinking, exciting gallery in the valley -- a true art destination in every sense. The "Savage Super Show", like the gallery itself, was a success directly due to the unbridled passion and unending drive of gallery owner/artist Savage and his special vision of sharing his love of art with others.
Sculptor Rik Phillips Exhibits At Savage Gallery’s “Super Show” Palm Springs contemporary sculptor Rik Phillips has amassed an impressive variety of patrons of the arts clients, including Barbara Streisand, as well as being part of the permanent art collection of business tycoon Armand Hammer. The talented Mr. Phillips is also eclectic in his wide range of sculpting styles -- from the wildly “retro-futuristic” such as the “Biomutants” series to the delicately crafted “old world” reproductions of everyday objects carved from wood to massive metal abstract public works such as the sculpture seen on prestigious El Paseo Drive in Palm Desert. He also had the good fortune to meet and work with Internationally-know sculptor Alexander Calder. Phillips will reveal never-before-seen works at the upcoming Savage Gallery’s “Savage Super Show” event. Portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit The Mizell Senior Center. Sponsored by PalmSpringsArtHome.com. “Rik’s Phillips is a high-profile, well-established artist,” explains Savage, the owner of the gallery. “The obvious versatility, craftsmanship and integrity in the work reflect the qualities of the artist who created them.”

Palm Springs' Forward-Thinking Savage Gallery Represents Controversial Intriguist Artist Brother Andy
Prolific Palm Springs, California, self-described contemporary "uber-artist" (someone proficient in more than five different media), Brother Andy, 52, is a film-maker, photographer, interior designer, graphic artist, web designer, fashion idol, activist for animal rights and nudism, and is the creator of the iconic "Jesus Chimp" -- which infuses both creationism and evolution into a single image. The gifted visionary is also the director of the Intriguism Art Movement, the inventor of the Intriguism "Retro-Futuristic" Art Method, and has aided over 100 artists and galleries in their goals, both personally and professionally, in the last three years. His edgy body of work, which includes assemblages, photography, photo-collage, paintings, "found objects", and multi-media -- to name just a few facets -- is now being represented by the newest and most progressive art gallery in all of Coachella Valley . "Savage Gallery is extremely proud to have a genuine genius such as Brother Andy represented," declares Savage, 43, owner of the gallery, artist, author and media entrepreneur. "Not only does Brother Andy produce amazing, sellable products and media programming, his insight educates and entertains in the manner Marcel Duchamp did. His work is timely AND universal, plus advances artistic endeavors beyond what is already commonly known as art in LA or New York ." "What I am accomplishing with my work -- which is a mindset more than a manufacturing of objects -- is inspiration, in others and in myself," reports Brother Andy enthusiastically. "Confrontation, challenge, experimentation and examination lead to questions, which lead to pro-active possibilities. Fear, especially of failing, doesn't occur to me. I have an obligation to creativity itself, to the future, to those who support my work, to at least try something different." When: "Savage Super Show", Saturday, September 17, 2011 6 pm to 11 pm . Free admission. Free parking. Free refreshments.
