Mall Gallery Closing - April End, 2023 deadline

Mall Gallery Closing end of April 2023

Dear Members and Others,

The Galleria At Sunset Mall management company, Brookfield Properties, has canceled our lease and given us 30 days to vacate the Las Vegas Artists’ Gallery.

This was a terrible blow and shock to the LVAG Board of Directors when we were informed of this on Tuesday afternoon, April 4th, 2023. Members of the Board met with representatives of the management company on April 5th. They offered other locations but the locations offered did not fit our business needs.

The Las Vegas Artists Guild will continue but in a different format right now. We will look for a new location in the coming months but until we can find something, we will have to re-group and morph into something different. Our focus for the next month is to do our best to take care of our artists while packing up and moving out.

Sylvia Aldebol
President – Las Vegas Artist Guild

In the meantime, we have some very urgent tasks:

  • We will keep the Gallery open and have volunteers working until April 22 to take advantage of possible sales of artwork for our artists.
  • We will return all artwork to our members on Sunday, April 23 from 11-4:00 pm so please save that date. If you have any issues with this date, please let a Board Member know so we can work out a solution.
  •  We will process a prorated refund for our artists so you will get some of your money back for the unused intake period after April 23, 2023.
  • We need to get a large storage unit to house all the fixtures from our current Gallery.
  •  We need to pack, label, and transport all the “business” parts of the Gallery to our temporary storage facility.
  • We will be keeping the members updated with dates for moving to the new storage location.
  • We will continue sending emails with more information on new events, workshops, special projects, and updates for the future.
  • We will need as much help as we can from our members to accomplish all these monumental tasks. 
  • We are also asking that everyone be kind and patient with each other as this is an upsetting time for all of us at the Las Vegas Artists’ Gallery and Guild. 

Thank you for all your support and kindness:
