First Friday April
The street festival around Charleston and Casino Center was packed for April First Friday, so Preview Thursday is the best time to see exhibitions and meet the artists. Top right are KD Matheson and Alexander Sky giving a talk at their current show at Sin City Gallery. Clay Arts Vegas is now open for classes at 1511 S. Main St with regular exhibitions scheduled in the Victor F. Keen gallery space.
First Friday Fremont East is less crowded and visitors can also check out the adjacent Emergency Arts - the destination for artist Jevijoe Vitug (at right) who was performing at 5th Wall Gallery, which also featured prints by UNLV MFA student Fred Mitchell. "Fabulous Downtown" in the central exhibition space gives a glimpse into the past courtesy curator Brian Paco Alvarez and the Las Vegas News Bureau.
Tasty Space was showing works by Minneapolis artist and designer Doug Pedersen and Kleven Contemporary hosted an interactive audio installation by mixed media artist and musician David Sanchez Burr.
