Take on the AutoArt Challenge!  Create a piece of 2 or 3 dimensional auto related art that will cater to the car buffs at the 2014 SuperRun Classic Car Show taking place in Henderson's Water St District on September 25th - 28th.  As the SuperRun activity is practically on our doorstep, the gallery will be open and we plan to participate with tents and outdoor displays for the AutoArt in addition to other member art.  Lots of opportunity to use your imagination!

 

Hub caps are available NOW at the gallery for only $5.  Use your creativity to paint yours.  They will be auctioned off in the Henderson Convention Center during the SuperRun.  The auction audience will be largely car enthusiasts, but any subject matter is fair game, just have fun!  To save time, you'll find the entry form to fill out ahead of time on the Form Downloads page of the website.

Thanks to a Henderson Loves the Arts grant, City Lights Art Gallery launched a series of six, free summer art workshops forHenderson students.  The results were great as shown below in a few examples!  

Photo Weaving

Aimed at talented Henderson art students, each workshop focuses on a different artistic learning experience such as working with colored pencils, making plaster masks or print making.  Students were selected by their art teachers.  Age groups span elementary through high school. 

 

The workshops, held at City Lights Art Gallery, 3 E. Army Street, Henderson, NV, were taught by Henderson art teachers Lori Mcardle, Tara Ferro, Michael Mcgreal and Theresa Hermanny. 


Ed Klein, President of the City Lights Artists’ Co-op states “We’re delighted to organize a program that allows talented young art students to gain new skills.  Our Co-op was founded on the principle that art is essential to a community’s well-being.  As a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, we have been sponsoring mini-grants and scholarships for local students for several years as well as regularly hosting student shows.  With the help of a grant through Henderson Loves The Arts, we’ve taken it to a new level with the City Lights Summer Workshops.
