We are the original Las Vegas. Historic. Beautiful. Diverse. Authentic.  We are New Mexico True.

LasVegas_NM_Final_Logo_C_W_line_TM-transparentWe are a local Arts Council dedicated to serving you. Art lovers, curious art explorers, visual artists, performance artists, you are welcome here!

The Las Vegas Arts Council’s Gallery 140 at 140 Bridge Street has a different exhibit nearly every month or two to introduce you to the art and artists of our community.

July is Motorcycle Art Month!  To celebrate the best of the biker culture and the annual Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally in Las Vegas,  this multi-media exhibit showcases an art installation titled “Under Construction,” photography, painting, metal sculpture, print-making, jewelry and more!  Click HERE for the full sized PDF of the poster.

Visit us at 140 Bridge Street, Tuesday through Saturday, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm with extended hours during Las Vegas Fiestas and the Rally.  The show, “Breezeway Bikers” is having a reception at the gallery and a bike show in the breezeway on Friday, July 28, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.

New Mexico Places, the photography of June Bowers is still available.  You can see the collection here; how many of these beautiful landscapes, and locations do you recognize?   Interested in owning one?  Contact us at 505-425-1085 or lvac@lasvegasartscpouncil.org.

We began the month of June with a series of socially engaged art experiences, Weaving Dialogues, and the public participated in creating the connections and the conversations.  Curious?  Click here for details.

 In May, we enjoyed “All Skateboarding,” a collaboration of artists celebrating the community and culture of skateboarding, and raising funds and enthusiasm for a new, state-0f-the-art skate park serving the youth of Las Vegas.

Curated by recent NMHU graduate Brian Marquez, there were pieces for display and many for sale.  Paintings and collages on skateboards by Marquez, Pablo Pekoc, Magali Rutschman, Amber MacLean, and others, photographs of skateboarders in action, a selection of boards hand-crafted by woodwork artist Paul Bonchi, framed paintings, a cast iron and bronze loooooong board sculpture by Ben Remmers, a Meredith Britt collage, and more filled the gallery with energy, talent, and skill!

The Third Castañeda Concert, Sounds of Spring was  May 7 at the Historic Ilfeld Auditorium on the NMHU campus.  Artistic director Ronald Maltais designed another delightful concert that will include the premier performance of an original composition by featuring local favorite, percussionist Ralph Marquez.
