Update to Members - Welcome Our New President and Treasurer


Letter to Members of the Guild and Others,

 Dear Las Vegas Artists’ Guild Members,

The Board of Directors is proud to announce the appointments of Andrew Burris and Jenny Baham as President and Treasurer of the Las Vegas Artists’ Guild, effective June 21, 2023. Andrew and Jenny are both qualified and excited to begin their new roles with the assistance of outgoing President, Sylvia Aldebol, and Treasurer, Jane Worrell. Both new appointments were unanimously supported by the Board and will bring new visions and strengths to continue with the legacy of the Guild.

Four of the current board members – Lin Berger, 2nd Vice President, Lin Pacific, Webmaster & Trustee, Kyle Fogarty, Trustee and Bobby Maxvill, Trustee will be continuing in their positions to help with the transition and into the future. As Priscilla Rogers has also stepped down, Andrew Burris will be looking to fill the 1st Vice President’s position as well as others so be sure to contact him directly if you are interested. Both new Board Members have art and business experience and are prepared to lead the Las Vegas Artists’ Guild into the future. As an active Board, we are all volunteers, and it is our greatest hope that LVAG membership will give the new Board Members the help and support they need to continue to make the Guild successful sharing our motto of “Artists Helping Artists”.


The Board of Directors for the Las Vegas Artists’ Guild

Thank you for all your support and kindness:

Mall Gallery Closing – April End Deadline

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:
