Community Calendar Jan. 22 – 28, 2015

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Virgin Valley Artists Association is holding an artist’s reception at the gallery today for the UP, UP and Away exhibit which has been gracing the gallery walls during the month of January.

The gallery is located at 15 West Mesquite Blvd and the reception is scheduled from 4-6 p.m.

While you are there take the time to browse around the many displays of art from the local artists in Mesquite and the Virgin Valley area.  All art displayed is for sale.

Perhaps music is your kind of art…well, you can check out the Music Jam at Guns and Guitars.

Join the fun and get into some old time Rock-n-Roll, Jazz, Country or Pop, whatever you like, you can come on over and Jam with Mike, Jan and the gang at Guns-n-Guitars.  It’s worth giving it a “shot”.

This is the last weekend for the Virgin Valley Theatre Group’s production of Vintage Hitchcock-A Radio Play.

If you get there just before the 7 p.m. performance you can get a sneak preview behind the scenes such as the warm ups done before each VVTG production along with all other preparations made before the curtain opens.

Tickets are available at Danielle’s Chocolates, the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery, the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce, Have Boutique Will Travel and the Mesquite Community Theatre Box Office.

The second performance of the Southern Nevada Symphony Orchestra is being held at the Virgin Valley High School on Saturday night at 7 p.m.  Tickets for this performance are also available at the outlets listed previously.

If you want entertainment, activities or events you can always find what’s happening right here in the community calendar every Thursday in print or everyday online at www.mesquitelocalnews.com/category/calendar.

Send all your events to tphilswife@aol.com, please put “community calendar” in the subject line or your submission may get lost in cyber space.

I look forward to helping you spread the word about your activity or event.
