In 1996 Fedderly Associates, a development, construction and design firm, made a designated room for showing their clients fine art and sculpture for their homes and offices. Gradually the show area grew to two rooms, then three (the Principal moved his office to accommodate the expansion) and the lobby. In the fall of 2008, the design firm moved its offices, showrooms and storerooms to Nopales Road in the Desert Business Park leaving the art gallery with all the space inside and all the outside garden/courtyard.
A beautiful compliment to the art gallery, the Lotus Garden, florist and nursery, moved into the southern end of the compound in 2010. The ever evolving gallery then made a separate business out of the (mostly African) tribal antiques and artifacts that the owner, Mike Fedderly, has collected over the past 50 years. Tribal Artifacts is housed within the Desert Art Collection. The lines between all the businesses at the compound are blurred by intention.
The gallery represents mostly mature masterful artists and sculptors, but also some emerging talents from all over the Americas.
