This is one of the paintings by Bernard Hoyes at the San Bernardino County Museum.

The San Bernardino County Museum is presenting a show of works by artist Bernard Hoyes through March 8, 2020.

“Spirit of the Land Through Climate Change,” an exhibition of large scale watercolors, speaks to the artist’s experience with the ecological life of the desert.

Hoyes, an artist working in multiple disciplines including performance, painting, watercolor and murals, is a Coachella Valley resident and a Jamaican-born African-American who is primarily recognized as a contemporary painter.

His work evolves from a highly intuitive space, capturing spiritual realms on canvas in radiant and brilliant essence. He inspires the viewer to transcend into new dimensions, and regardless of the genre, all of his work has an undercurrent of spirituality.

His work has exhibited at the Museum of African American Art in Los Angeles, Riverside Art Museum, Mission Inn Museum, Palm Springs Art Museum, and others.

His works are in the private collections of Oprah Winfrey, Natalie Cole, Steve Harvey, Helene Galen, Keenan Ivory Wayans and the National Urban League.

The San Bernardino County Museum is at 2024 Orange Tree Lane at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The exhibit is included with general admission. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission is $10 for adults, $8 for military members or seniors, $7 for students, and $5 for children aged 5 to 12. Children under five and Museum Association members are admitted free. Parking is free. For more information, visit
