This is cover artist Marcia Geiger’s fourth year on the Hwy 62 Open Studio Art Tours.
Most of her pieces this year are painted around the “Mobile Desert Domiciles” theme, though there will be other subjects on display at her studio, including her bovine skull series and small pieces on paper from her trip to Maine last summer.
All of the subjects for Mobile Desert Domiciles are locally sourced, from the Tin Goose, on the cover of this issue, to Bien Venido 1, a dolled up 1950s “canned ham” that the owner calls “Cutie.” The Tin Goose may sometimes be seen parked in front of the Joshua Tree Saloon.
Along with original art, Geiger will have postcards, cards, prints on paper, and new this year, custom prints on stretched canvas in a variety of sizes. She notes there is a little something for everyone if they are in a buying mood, or they can just stop by and see a real working studio. There will be live music provided at her studio by master guitar player Bradley Trafton. She says, “My studio is a little out of the way, but worth the trip!
