A little recent history…

Here is a complete slide show from March 2022!  Thank you, K. Dawne Holmes, for photographing and producing it.

We celebrated our art students and our public schools during the winter months, January through March.  Each student exhibiting becomes an honorary artist member of Las Vegas Arts Council for the entire year, and not only show their work, but have the opportunity to sell it as well.  Special thanks to arts educators Amy Hufnal, McKaila Weldon, John Peden, and Faith Gelvin for all the extra hours they invested selecting, transporting, arranging, labeling, and advertising these student shows.


Our February show celebrates the student artists of West Las Vegas High School and Rio Gallinas School of Ecology and the Arts.  

WLV HS Instructor McKaila Weldon assigned a portrait project and ceramics, and John Peden had a mask-making class for his Rio students. 



The Bazaar on Bridge survived COVID closures and Bridge Street Construction, and we still had a great show, including a Cash Mob, thanks to MainStreet de Las Vegas.  Thanks to all the shoppers and supporters who stopped by to shop, to encourage us, and to renew their memberships.


Quilts were the theme of our
November show.  Beautiful unique work and creative quilters made it  fun.  

Our October show celebrated the photography and the photographers of our beautiful northeastern New Mexico, for the
Las Vegas San Miguel Chamber of Commerce’
2022 Community Calendar.



In August and September,
“Tradition” exhibited
both traditional Spanish Colonial
and contemporary art.

This show was dedicated to the memory of beloved local master tinsmith artist Eugenio Gurule.
