Las Vegas Artist Guild Volunteer of the Month of April - Robert Rich
Thank you Bob for your dedication and continued support. You are a fabulous example of “Artists Helping Artists”.
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.
The Vegas Artists’ Guild aka LVAG is an organization of artists whose primary purpose is to bring talented, established, and emerging artists in the Vegas Valley area to the public’s attention. Local, amateur and professional artists of the Las Vegas Artists’ Guild reach these goals through networking, regular gatherings, workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions, and community involvement.
The Las Vegas Artists’ Guild is a registered 501(c)3.

I usually begin with a drawing of ideas, then set my art in using shades of black, white and greys; only adding layers of colors after the basic painting is on canvas or paper, then I refine my art. I paint with many types of media; acrylics, water-based oils, watercolors, pensils, and of late have been using iridescent translucent media. I often embellish my work in digital format after adding them to my computer. This is where I learned over 30 years ago how to overlay my poetry over my art pieces. I have come to appreciate the advanced form ART has taken with now being able to paint within the computer. I can use regular techniques and combine my art in layers and create entire new exciting paintings or paint from a blank canvas with digital painting programs. I find it so enjoyable to create my Art with many different media. My works are both traditional and mixed media Art.
I was showing and selling my work more seriously while living in Del Mar, California, where I had works in the Windson Gallery, Sawdust Festival in Laguna, Galleries in Solana Beach, La Jolla and San Diego area.
After moving back to the Las Vegas Valley in 2000, I continued to show in galleries here and in the Henderson Convention Center. I am showing now at the Boulder City Art Guild Gallery and the LVAG Gallery in the Galleria Mall as the Featured Artist from May 17th to July 9th 2022. I have received many Featured Artist Awards from Fine Art America contests and placed or won many art contests.
