Lynne Naylor painting show in Palm Springs

L.A.-based artist/animator Lynne Naylor has a show of new lovely, eerie, pop surrealist paintings opening tomorrow night, September 13, at M Modern Gallery in Palm Springs, CA. Along with her gorgeous paintings, Naylor is known for her work on The Ren & Stimpy Show and The Powerpuff Girls. The mood, colors, and composition of this series, titled Arlice's Odyssey, take my breath away. I was thrilled to learn that these paintings are the basis of a three-part illustrated storybook that will be published next year. The show opening is from 7 to 10pm and will feature the live psy-fi sounds of Sir Cosmo Cosmopollus (aka Naylor's multitalented husband, painter Chris Riccardi.) Arlice's Odyssey is also viewable online at Naylor's Web site. Seen above, "Arlice converses with a Sprite" (acrylic on canvas, 16" x 20"). Arlice's Odyssey (

Most of the shops downtown cater to tee-shirt tourists or sell 1980s looking southwestern art. There are, however, plenty of stores that resell mid-century furniture and accoutrements, as well as art that doesn’t sell by the square foot. And PS is a treasury of mid-century modern architecture. Bring sunscreen.
