About Us

Mission Statement

The Vegas Artists Guild is an organization of artists whose primary purpose is to bring talented, established and emerging artists in the Las Vegas area to public attention. Local, amateur and professional artists of the Vegas Artists Guild reach these goals through meetings, workshops and demonstrations, art shows and networking.

History

The Las Vegas Artists' Guild was founded in 1996 by a group of local Las Vegas artists led by Andre Mouton. Throughout the rich history of the LVAG, we have had a number of leaders in our art community as both board members and participants in the Guild.

Scholarships

Dale Karr Scholarship Fund
Local Art teachers from public schools (grades K-12) are encouraged to submit plans to the Board of the Las Vegas Artists' Guild each spring. Plans are reviewed and final Fund recipients will be chosen by the Guild's Trustees. For example, a $700 Fund was awarded to Chaparral High School's Art Department, which helped the students turn an unused portion of the school's cafeteria into a versatile and stylish Art Gallery to showcase student's work. Dale Karr was a past president of the LVAG. All donations to our Dale Karr Scholarship Fund are tax deductible.

Don Russell Memorial Award
Each year, the guild presents several awards to members who have gone above and beyond the call of duty on behalf of the guild. They are awarded at the end of the year and their membership dues for the following year are waived in honor of their extraordinary efforts for the guild. The award is named after past member Don Russell, who was a talented sculptor and long time supporter of the arts.
