The Virgin Valley Artists have just completed setting up the July exhibit, ‘Patterns and Pieces’ which will run through July 27 with the open house reception scheduled to be held on July 18 from 4-6 p.m.

Everyone is welcome to come and visit the artist’s work Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Browse through the gallery to see what thoughts come to the mind of the Virgin Valley Artists when they think of patterns and pieces.

You can easily discover the patterns found in nature or those rendered by the artists in some of the most amazing works of art you’ll see this month.

Some of the artists found bits and pieces of objects to create some spectacular works and they’re there all through July thanks to this month’s sponsors Charlie Hospadura and Sherry Gosdis-Hospadura. When it comes to community involvement, enhancement and making sure their current and future friends have a great time, there’s not many better couples in Mesquite; if it helps the community, count these two in. This month they have brought beauty and inspiration; you just have to walk through the doors to enjoy it, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite piece; the winners will be announced at the reception.
