About Rubine Red

1st Art.jpg

The day I bought my first piece of original art, I was hooked.

 

Actually it was a grouping of four (at left) mixed-media paintings by Minneapolis College of Art & Design (MCAD) student Caleb Coppock.

 

The creativity was inspiring and the thought of having someone's original creation hanging in my home gave me so much joy.  

 

Now all these years later, Rubine Red is a dream come true.

 

Hopefully our love of all art, but especially art that arguably fits into the "New Contemporary Art Movement", shines bright on the gallery walls and in our efforts to create a space where visitors are inspired by what they see and feel.  

 

Art continues to challenge us.  It is personal.  Seeing a work one day may raise up a melancholy memory, then the next day...bring a smile. 

 

We also hope that the work we show and sell in the heart of Palm Springs, inspires and casts a bright light on the artists we represent.

Additionally, Rubine Red shows a carefully curated "Estate Collection" which highlights specific artists who were creating in the "Mid-Century" (1950s-60s) including Midwest Printmaking icon Malcolm Myers, Reginald Pollack, Lynne Mapp Drexler and more.

 

May you love what you experience here as much as we do.
