The Pahrump Art Gallery just installed a new exhibit on 10th and this group will remain for your enjoyment, until the end of December. Our “Featured artist for tis quarter is Ty Cook this from Ty- ” Hi, I am Ty Cook, and I was born an artist in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I have been drawing my whole life. My mom is an Oil painter and I was amazed by her talent. I remember drawing my uncle’s rock and roll albums. They always had such off the wall and interesting subjects.. I started out using Charcoal and pencil then later went on to soft pastels and acrylics. Every chance I get to attend a class or workshop, I am there! I love the Pahrump art scene. I’ve been a member of PAC, The Art Guild and The Pahrump Art Gallery since it began. I believe if you can write your name, then you can learn to draw”
Other local artists exhibiting at this time are, Lloyd Martin, Charlise Butler, Marti Zeigler, Laurie McCaslin, Jessica Wakefield, Nancy Stillwell and Mike Wakefield and Princy Simonsen.. Speaking of December, don’t forget that we have a selection of very unique gift items at the Gallery as well as original works of art. We Have artist blank greeting cards, Painted rock paperweights, hand turned wood items, leaded glass and beautiful polished stone jewelry, by appointment. Also bins full of small watercolors and prints. Wonderful deals on used books also.
Coming up on Saturday, November 7th, You are invited to our monthly informal open meeting of “Birds of a Feather”. We gather in our Gallery from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM to just get together with other creative people to talk about what we are doing and hopefully learn stuff about art. This coming meeting, Art Gallery board member Becky Calkins will be demonstrating a unique way of coloring ceramics with chalk! The demonstration piece will be given away to a participant. Bring whatever you are working on to show, or just bring yourself and get to know some of our local artists.
