Rattlesnakes, Cameras, Pistols and Lilies: Come see a unique exhibition of photographs and paintings of a desert journey.



Oddball Films is excited to recommend this one-of-a-kind exhibition spearheaded by our friend, the multi-talented artist Warner Graves. Warner has co-edited, along with Ann Japenga, a book of photographs chronicling the story of his grandmother Lula Mae Graves and her cousin, Susie Keef Smith as they travelled through the southwest in the 1920s armed with a pistol, a camera, and an eye for the desert’s beauty. Recently Warner took the time to travel through many of the spots that his grandmother Lula Mae and her friend Susie visited and painted the landscapes he saw there. Lula Mae and Susie’s photographs and Warner’s paintings are being shown together until May 15th at La Quinta Museum, just southeast of Palm Springs, California.
