A couple of years ago we were invited to contribute to the hiking book Wanderlust: Hiking on Legendary Trails with photos and descriptions of our 2015 trek of the John Muir Trail. It’s a beautiful coffee-table book that will make any hiker salivate. Flipping through its pages, we fell in love with many trails around the world, but one in particular seemed to beckon more strongly than the rest: the Annapurna Circuit.Read More
In the latest dearantler show we attempt to convey the indescribable allure that the desert has for us. My deer relatives, accustomed to the nourishing bounty of Southern California's oak woodlands and chaparral-covered hills, turn their ears away whenever I sing the desert's praises. E+J tell me that their human brethren often greet them with similar disinterest, asking questions like: "What's so special about the desert?

dearantler opened its virtual doors on December 15, 2013 and we're throwing a party (in real life, not virtual!) to celebrate 3 years of shenanigans and 10 art shows.
Come out and say hello, enjoy live music by holiday carolers and the Peanut Butter & Jellies,* go on a guided moonlight hike, sip a drink...and of course enjoy the artwork. Brand-new work and selections from all past shows will be on display, including work by the talented Diana Kohne. Check out the gallery and attic for a taste.
The event takes place at TreePeople's Coldwater Canyon Park, a beautiful refuge in the middle of LA. Extra points for anyone who can decode the symbols at the bottom of the poster (hint: each represents a past show title and a Hitchock film).
*The PB&Js are: Edith de Guzman, Laura Derby, Jessika Mitchell, Danny Carmichael and Rodney Rodriguez.
