YOUR FUTURE STARTS HERE at the Contemporary Arts Center

This is the final week to see the fabulous 20th Anniversary exhibition "Your Future Starts Here" curated by artist Jim Stanford. This group exhibition celebrates our 20-year history as a non-profit contemporary arts organization, from early beginnings as the Temporary Contemporary on Maryland Parkway to our current location on Charleston in the Arts Factory. This exhibition and retrospective gathers the work of our organization's most active members and founders. "Your Future Starts Here" provides historical perspective and highlights the CAC's influence on the careers of artists and the beneficial impact the artists had on the CAC and the Las Vegas arts community. The exhibition closes on January 28th.


Upcoming, The CAC presents "Tomorrow People," a group exhibition showcasing painting, sculpture and drawing by four emerging artists. Within the past decade, Leah Craig, Catherine Cruse, Justin Favela, and Thomas Willis were nurtured by the Las Vegas art community while developing their art practices at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. This visual proximity and artistic cultivation has influenced each artist’s work. Instead of prescribing a theme to the viewer, "Tomorrow People" allows systems and patterns to arise from their artworks’ interaction.

Opening reception on Thursday, February 4th from 6-9 pm. There will be an artists' talk at 7 p.m.
