PALM DESERT, CA.- Heather James Fine Art is presenting an exhibition of paintings and sculptures by artist and musician Herb Alpert. The exhibition, “Herb Alpert: A Visual Melody”, consists of abstract mixed-media paintings and large and small-scale bronze sculptures. Alpert’s expressive use of various media engage the viewer with a captivating sense of movement and form, translating into a lyrical and unforgettable experience. The collection is on view February 17 - May 31, 2018.

In addition to being a world-renowned musician, Alpert has spent more than half his life as a respected abstract expressionist painter and sculptor, whose work has been widely exhibited in the U.S. and Europe. Since he began painting in 1969, Alpert has experimented with a number of different styles and materials. In 2013, Alpert was recognized by President Barack Obama with the National Medal of Arts Award.

Always personal and expressive, Alpert’s paintings articulate fluidity and motion. Alpert’s sculptures draw interest with their freedom of form. His first totems were inspired by indigenous sculptural forms from the Pacific Northwest, but his Black Spirit Totems series, with their massive form became more gestural. Walking among these giants is awe-inspiring.

“To have my work exhibited at a world class gallery like Heather James is exciting,” said Herb Alpert.

“I have, like most people, been aware of Herb’s musical genius for years. It came to my complete surprise only recently of Herb’s passion and skill in the visual arts” said Jim Carona, owner of Heather James Fine Art. “We are extraordinarily pleased to be exhibiting his sculptures and paintings at our Palm Desert location.”

Alpert’s paintings and sculptures have been exhibited in museums and galleries across the U.S. and Europe including Art Cologne, Art Fair Basel, the Tennessee State Museum and the Pasadena Museum of California Art. His work is also in the permanent collections at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles, the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville and The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, which has permanently installed nine sculptures.
