Las Vegas Artists Guild

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 members of the LVAG Board of Directors. and as member participants. Additionally, we continue to build a variety of Community Partners; Nevada Humanities, Clark County Cultural Arts, Galleria at Sunset, Eat More Art Vegas, Henderson Symphony Orchestra, Opera Las Vegas, Desert Art Supply, Safe Nest, and many more. Our goal is to uphold our motto – Artists Helping Artists.

January Featured Artist: Jarrod Ames

Artist Statement

I use the phrase Finding Inspiration in my logo and in my newsletters. It is what drives me to always go out, battle the elements and wait patiently for those special moments to capture. So that I may inspire you to go out and see this beautiful world of ours! 

Featured Artist – Jarrod Ames

“Finding Inspiration“

This is my Motto: 

This is what drives me. I have a constant hunger to venture out, battling the elements and waiting patiently to capture these special moments. I do this so that I may inspire people to go out, go see this beautiful of ours.

Bio –  I have lived in Las Vegas all my life, however, it wasn’t until 2012 that I really discovered my passion for photography. I grew up loving to draw and I always had a sketch pad nearby. I had always wanted to be an animator or computer animator for movies. In 2012, I had a very tough year personally and professionally. My grandmother, my best friend growing up, passed away and it was difficult to lose such an inspiration in my life. My work passed me over for a promotion that I had worked so hard for and gave it to someone that had very little experience. Yet, out of this and some other hardships that year, I re found my interest in photography. I bought my first DSLR and I never looked back! By the next year I was using more professional gear, doing portraits and some weddings. But my love of landscape photography is what really kept and still keeps me going every day. I love being out in nature, seeing fleeting moments in time and capturing those moments. This is what drives me to wake up hours before the sunrise, sacrifice sleep and drive for miles to see something that most people are missing in life. So now I travel all over the American southwest and other places to see this beautiful world that we live in and try to photograph it, the way I see it.

Volunteer Spotlight: Kristi Watson

Kristi Watson in the LVAG Gallery

I started volunteering at the Las Vegas Artist’s Guild in August of 2018! I volunteer here because I believe you should support the place where you are selling your work. I’ve met so many amazing artists at the gallery and honestly I never realized how many artists never volunteered here until I became involved. It’s hard to keep a gallery open without volunteers to run it. The best thing about volunteering is that you have an opportunity to make your art while you volunteer, speak to people who stop by, and sell your work where you aren’t paying a large rental fee for a storefront. It’s a win/win situation!
