Congratualtion to Naomi Arens of Dust Gallery. Their new gallery space is now open in the Soho Lofts building at Charleston and Las Vegas Blvd.
About 200 attended last nights grand opening. Many notable and well known people attended. We ran into Paul Murad, author of “The Manhattenization of Las Vegas”, Architect Steven JacksonMichael Cornwaite from the Downtown Coctail Room, local artist Steven Spann, and writers Erica Griffin, Matt Kellerman.
The whole VVV team, Pam, Mary Joy (stunning as always) Paco, Steve, Phil, Susan and naturally, yours truly, Uncle Jack were there as well. Our group had mexican at Dona Maria’s next door afterwards. Great Mexican, and too many margaritas.
Marietta Hoferer’s “Unknown” series on display was an understated white on white series of works done entirely with packing tape on paper. The space itself is 2 stories tall, and exactly the kind of gallery needed to become one of the new anchors of the Arts District.
Downtown is alive and kicking. We’ll always be announcing events such as this, and we invite you to come out and enjoy the new urban living in Las Vegas.
