The Vitality of Revitilization

Henderson artists and residents often find themselves discussing the need for growth and revitalization in the downtown area. We're not alone. It would seem downtown Las Vegas, with the development of the Smith Center for the Performing Arts and the 18b Arts District, is on the same page and on the cusp of a cultural surge. In fact, they may be a couple of steps ahead. It's not a competition. Any progress to that end in this whole region is a benefit to all of us. If you're interested in seeing and hearing about what that revitalization may ultimately look like, join the discussion at tomorrow night's (October 13th's) Symphony Park Lecture Series The Urban Vibe. It's free to the public and sure to be enlightening. 5-6:00 pm Wine Bar. 6-7:00 pm Panel Discussion. Fifth Street School, 401 South Fourth Street, Las Vegas, NV.

October HAA General Meeting Coming Up. Mark Your Calendars.

Please join us Tuesday evening, October 19th, for our monthly Henderson Art Association general meeting. HAA member, board member, and resident photographer Nabila Khanam will be sharing her work anecdotally as the Curtain Raiser. She will be followed by renowned artist Jelaine Faunce who will be presenting her work and her process as part of our ongoing speaker series.

Jelaine is a contemporary realist artist based in Henderson, NV. She graduated from UNLV in 1996 with a B.A. in Fine Art, and has worked full-time as a freelance artist since 2000. She paints primarily in oil on canvas, her subject matter most often being still life arrangements she creates herself. Her work resides in private and corporate collections throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. We are happy to have her among us for an evening.

Specifically, Jelaine will be walking through her artistic process as she discusses her very personal artistic journey and presents "Meditative Painting: How I Address My Own Doubts and Fears at the Easel Using Energetic and Spiritual Techniques." Her work may be viewed here: Jelaine Faunce Studio
