You can begin the tour at the Las Vegas Arts Council, at Gallery 140, located in the beautiful historic district at 140 Bridge Street. Of course, you can download the map and other information instead, but we would LOVE to meet you, to welcome you, and to introduce you to the studio tour artists and their art.
See samples of every artist’s work HERE.
The festivities will kick off at 5:00 PM on Friday, September 30, with an Artists’ Reception at Gallery 140.
Directions: From University Ave Exit 345 off I-25. Go west to town; cross over I-25. Stay on University Ave. Turn right on 5th Street one block. Turn left on National Avenue, past NMHU campus buildings. Cross Gallinas River Bridge. Las Vegas Arts Council Gallery 140 is on the right.
Enjoy light refreshments while you admire samples of the work of our participating Studio Tour artists. Pick up the Tour Brochure which will include a copy of the tour map. Plan your tour around the most intriguing artists, the ones whose work actually speaks to you.
Listen…and maybe dance to the sounds of the Impalas in the Breezeway right next door to the Gallery. A group of reunited musicians who were playing music together in Las Vegas in the 1960s, the Impalas will play a wide variety of music including rock, Latin/Hispanic, jazz and pop. Take a stroll. Step back in time as you marvel at the architecture of our Historic Bridge Street leading to the Old Town Plaza. Tour the Plaza Hotel, once and yet again the Belle of the Southwest. There is art displayed there, too, and some of our favorites can be found in the corridor outside the ballroom, Las Vegas Arts Council at the Plaza Hotel.
On Saturday, October 1 from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday, October 2 from 10 am to 5 pm visit private studios and engage with a myriad of local talented artists, within their own spaces, sharing spaces, and in the larger group at The Castañeda Hotel.
Discover over 30 local artists at 14 different and interesting locations plus art galleries. Meet the charming physicist-astronomer, the opera singer/software designer, the blacksmith, the dental hygienist, the Georgian folk music collector, the NMHU professor, the journalist-photographer, emergency relief coordinator, and the social worker.
And they are all artists! We even have a few full-time artists.
Stop frequently to sample the authentic and delicious flavors of our local restaurants and food wagons. You will want to spend a night or two so you be well-rested for your next day of adventure and exploration. The Gallery will be open at 9:00 AM and will stay open until 6:00 PM both days. Pick up a brochure any time–you are always welcome–whenever the doors are open, the “Welcome” flag is flying! We invite you to feast on the beauty and creativity of our community. Preview the art, the artists, the wonder of the 2016 tour here.
Art Lovers! Plan now to return to visit us often. There’s a new show at Gallery 140 every month!
