The Virgin Valley Artists Association’s August competition/exhibit “Abstract Art” is sponsored by the Eureka Casino Resort.

The Public is welcomed to join them today, 4 p.m. at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery, to honor the artists who are displaying their works.  Awards will be presented for this competition and refreshments will be served.

VVAA member Floyd Johnson is featured artist of the month and is also displaying his fine works.  Stop by anytime during the hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday to see both exhibits.  The exhibition closes August 29.

We Care for Animals is holding a pet adoption this Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at 150 North Yucca Street, #1.

All available adoptees through WCFA will have been vet checked, will be current on shots, spayed/neutered and ready for their forever home with you, all you have to do is stop by and pick them up.

The American Red Cross urges residents to donate blood in the month of August to help prevent a shortage.  The AMR Blood Mobile will be stationed at Primex Plastics from 1-6 p.m. on Tuesday.

The Virgin Valley Theatre Group is holding auditions for their season opener “Angel Street” also known by the TV movie title “Gaslight” on Monday and Tuesday at the Mesquite Community Theatre.  Auditions will begin at 6 p.m.

“Angel Street” will be directed by long time VVTG members Matt McDonald and Jenna Grubb.  The cast of characters they will be looking for are described “loosely” (It is theatre and illusions can be created) as follows:

MANNINGHAM– Is tall and good-looking man, about 45ish. He is heavily mustached and bearded and perhaps a little too well dressed. His manner is suave and authoritative, with a touch of mystery and bitterness.
MRS. MANNINGHAM–She is about 34ish. She has been good-looking, almost a beauty but now she has a haggard, wan, frightened air, with rings under her eyes, which tell of sleepless nights and worse.
ELIZABETH – Is a stout, amiable, subservient woman of 50ish.
NANCY – She is a self-conscious, pretty, cheeky girl of 19ish.
ROUGH – He is a middle-aged, greying, short, wiry, active, brusque, friendly, overbearing man. He has a low, warm chuckle and completely dominates the scene from the beginning.

There are also non-speaking parts for 2 men.

For more information on the VVTG and the 2015-16 Season visit their web site at www.vvtgnv.com or call 702-346-2325.
