Calling All Artists. Upcoming City Light's Gallery Show at the Liberace Museum. Submit Your Work.

The Liberace Museum (a local favorite) is hosting yet another show to support the ever-emerging Henderson art community. Recently, the museum's cast members and volunteers have been kind enough to open their doors to the Henderson Art Association and Nevada Watercolor Society.

This time, it's City Lights Gallery whose first juried fine art show will be hosted in the coveted and sparkling Liberace Museum Showroom.

A formal call for entries has been put out to artists from the Henderson Art Association, Boulder City Art Guild, Nevada Watercolor Society, and Vegas Artists Guild. If you are interested in participating, please bring your work to the Liberace Museum on February 16th, between the hours of 10:00 am and 12:00 noon. Please be prompt and respect the schedules of others. Time is our most precious commodity.

Artists may submit up to three pieces. The first entry costs fifteen dollars. Ten dollars for each entry after that, again, up to three. Fees will go toward City Lights Gallery's planned $1200 renovation.

There will be a free reception open to the public in the Liberace Museum Showroom from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on February 17th, although donations are kindly accepted. The reception includes a partial tour of the museum. Pianist Dehner Franks will be tickling the Liberace grand piano ivories and there will be a ribbon ceremony for winners in two categories (photography and painting, which includes mixed media) at 7:00 pm that evening. The show will remain hanging until February 27th.

City Lights is a non-profit gallery located at 3 Army Street in downtown Henderson. Visit their website at
