Marty Walsh shakes up the local art scene with her new Trifecta Gallery... Grand Opening Celebration TONIGHT...

It is without any doubt that Marty Walsh is one of the most successful gallerists and artists in Las Vegas history. She has persevered through the worst of the economic downturn, has curated a fabulous collection of shows, brought to Las Vegas some of the most talented artists and is one of the nicest, most professional and dedicated people I know. That is why tonight is even more special for this pillar of the local art scene.

Who would have imagined just a few years ago that the tiny gallery located at the back of the Arts Factory would become its anchor and tell the world we are here and we are not going anywhere! With Mayor Oscar B. Goodman in tow and a few members of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce to cut the ribbon, tonight will be the culmination of Marty's dream.

Marty and her assemblage of artists will be presenting minUMENTAL Invitational during the Grand Opening celebration of the new, bigger and more spectacular Trifecta Gallery. The show brings together dozens of artists who have created a collection of small works. For a collector of small works myself this show is a must and just peeking into the gallery last night has me wondering if I should stop by during lunch before the gallery is swarmed.

Tonight will be a very special night for Marty, her family, friends, artists and fans. So please make sure to come down and see what she has created in 18b - Las Vegas' arts district.

Trifecta Gallery is located inside the World Famous Arts Factory

Trifecta Gallery’s Grand Opening & Annual minUMENTAL INVITATIONAL grows to MONumental proportions 
Marty Walsh voted the cities ‘Best Gallerist’ moves to a new space inside the Arts Factory, our own Mayor Oscar Goodman shows his support by doing the ribbon cutting set for Dec 2nd @ 5pm

The 5th annual minUMENTAL INVITATIONAL in Trifecta Gallery will make its debut in the larger 1200 sq.ft space during its Grand Opening December 2 at 5pm. Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce officers will attend and Las Vegas’ Mayor Oscar Goodman will cut the ribbon into the exhibition at 5 pm.

This anticipated group show has added 8 more invitations to this year’s roster because of the larger space in the Arts Factory they have occupied since July 2010. The grand opening was held off on purpose until the staff, interns and director became more familiar with procedures and the larger workload that comes with growth.

“We wanted to combine the Grand Opening with a show to encompass many artists because without the artists, their fans and patrons, we would not be here celebrating today” Says gallery owner, Marty Walsh. The expansion includes being open 7 days a week, special events, delivery service and an active internship program for people wishing to learn gallery practices.

The exhibition itself will have over 200 – 64 inch squared works of art from 26 artists across North America. There will be the popular favorites, well-known artists making their Trifecta Gallery debut and some new discoveries the gallery hopes will become popular with its patrons and visitors. Invited artists are Anthony Freda (NY), Biscuit Street Preacher (NV), Brian Henry (NV), Caesar Garcia (NV), Casey Weldon (NY), Dave Barnes (Canada) , Eric Joyner (CA), Erin Stellmon (NV), Gary Taxali (Canada), Jennifer Henry (NV), Jennifer Kleven (NV), Jerry Misko (NV), JW Caldwell (NV), Kristen Peterson (NV), Kirk Stoller (NY), Laura Ball (CA), Miguel Rodriguez (NV), Martha Rich (PA), Mary Warner (NV), Philip Denker (NV), Sam Davis (CA), Suzanne Hackett Morgan (NV), Thomas Lee Bakofsky (CA), Tony Dotson (OH), Todd VonBastiaans (NV), Wendy Kveck (NV).
