We are the original Las Vegas. Historic. Beautiful. Diverse. Authentic. We are New Mexico True.
We 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. We are now showing “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 are pieces for display and many for sale. Paintings and collages on skateboards by Marquez, Pablo Pekoc, Magali Rutschman, Amber MacLean, and more, 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 fill the gallery with energy, talent, and skill!
Our door is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm, and this exhibit will be up through the month of May.
The Third Castañeda Concert, Sounds of Spring, is scheduled for May 7 at the Historic Ilfeld Auditorium on the NMHU campus. Artistic director Ronald Maltais has designed another delightful concert that will include the premier performance of an original composition by featuring local favorite, percussionist Ralph Marquez.
