Our city in the desert is home to some wonderful and talented artists. During March of each year, the Gallery not only showcases one of its own as Artist of the Month (a regular feature each month at the Gallery from Jan. through Oct.), but it also holds its “Artists’ Showcase” Exhibition during which many artists can showcase all their creative talents.
The Artist of the Month for March 2019 features award-winning watercolorist Vanessa Temple. After moving to Mesquite with her husband several years ago, she would find herself sitting for hours every evening, gazing at the starlit sky and a new level of desire awakened within Vanessa; a passion to give a voice to her heart-felt experiences through art. She discovered the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery and began to take art classes. Inspired with the open spaces of her new surroundings, Vanessa uses the medium of watercolor to paint her many award-winning paintings. She loves the freedom of the medium and the “happy surprises” of blended colors.
The Artists’ Showcase Exhibition fills out the remaining display space and features 24 artists. On Sunday, the Gallery was hustling and bustling as each participating artist set up their own “personal” exhibitions, displaying their paintings, pottery, jewelry, sculptures and so many more creations. The Gallery sparkles with joy as the view of it all bubbles alive with activity.
This is a wonderful opportunity for all to come in and see the variety of talent that resides in the City of Mesquite and the surrounding region, and which is on display at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery. The Gallery has visitors from all over the world who stop in and marvel at our sparkling gem in the desert. The all artwork is for sale and what a wonderful way to add to your new home, spruce up for spring or find that one-of-a kind unique gift you are looking for. The Artists’ Showcase runs from March 4 through March 30, and the Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It is located at 15 W. Mesquite Blvd., Mesquite NV. The Gallery can be reached during its business hours at 702-346-1338.
Also, we welcome the public to our Open House and Artists’ Reception on Thursday, March 21 from 4 – 6 p.m. and appetizers and other delicious goodies are always a part of our celebration!
