As an added bonus, Art on Palm hosts Maryrose Smyth and Mark Pickett will give tours of Henry Greene’s Valentine Cottage. Renovated in 1924, the Cottage rests at the base of an ancient oak estimated to be over 650 years old.  The Cottage’s exceptional stone work includes two chimneys and two gracious porches, evidence of the Craftsmen Movement’s seamless integration of indoor/outdoor living for Southern California’s lifestyle.

“Art on Palm has something for everyone”, states Mary Jane Elgin, the event’s co-founder. “Art on Palm promotes gifted local artists, attracts a loyal following, builds awareness of Altadena’s vibrant architecture, acknowledges the beauty of an ancient oak canyon, and even raises funds for the Fisher House of Greater Los Angeles.”

Since 2006, Art on Palm artists have donated a portion of their sales to The West L.A. Fisher House; which provides humanitarian support for hospitalized military personnel and their families.
