12 Inches of Sin is the largest international juried exhibition of contemporary provocative art in Nevada. As an exploration of sensuality and the erotic, this show has a twist: every piece submitted for consideration must be one foot square or less. Judges such as former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman, Christine Fey, Resource Development and Cultural Affairs Manager at City of Reno, and Will Roger Peterson, co-founder of Burning Man, evaluate the tension within the art itself, challenging each artist to produce an image that is deeply expressive, provocative, sensory and daring on such a small scale. Sin City Gallery, Las Vegas will hold the competition for its fifth year and is accepting art submissions thru October 31, 2015 at www.12ofsin.com.

For 11 years the LGBT Center of Southern Nevada has been celebrating the arts with its annual fete Artrageous. The celebration continues this year with art, fashion, entertainment and a bit of history as the event is held at the historic Tropicana Resort. The Tropicana was once called the Tiffany of the Strip because of its progressive design and unrivaled class. Today the newly remodeled resort will beckon the Las Vegas Arts Intelligentsia for an evening that celebrates the arts. Of course I am very excited to be returning to co-curate the event with my friend and fellow arts cohort Melissa Petersen, President of the Contemporary Arts Center of Las Vegas.

Dr. Laura Henkel,
Sin City Gallery in Las Vegas is delighted to present Incognito a show of the electrifying work of Cass Fuller. The show will open on April 2 through the 26th of April 2015. Incognito represents the fact that Fuller’s work is seen in the most popular venues in Las Vegas, and yet, no one knows who Cass Fuller is.
