"Wood Works" Exhibition By Artist Scott Sturman
On display through Thursday, Oct. 22, 2022
From the artist:
I’ve always been surrounded by wood; I was born and raised in a family business that made cabinets. Although I did some furniture making in my earlier years, and continue to do so today, mostly out of my love for handmade furniture, my real obsession started the first time that I saw a lathe. Definition "a machine for shaping wood, metal, or other material by means of a rotating drive which turns the piece being worked on against changeable cutting tools". After this discovery, I began making wooden bowls out of any cut-down pieces of trees I could find. My love of the lathe was born. I soon became addicted to the art of segmented woodworking, which entails the cutting up big pieces of wood into little pieces of wood, of various sizes and angles and then gluing them all back together into unique shapes and patterns. My fascination is with the process. While all my pieces start with an idea and then some type of plan followed by lots of patient cutting and gluing these pieces back together, I never know the final outcome until the very end. It’s this ending of the process, sometimes successful, sometimes not that keeps me looking for the next project.

On display Thursday, May 12 through Friday, Nov. 4, 2022
Historic ties between Mexico and Nevada form an important ongoing connection through cultural exchange. Many cultural and social connections have built foundations that build bridges of understanding and economic benefits for the United States and Mexico. Especially in artistic disciplines such as music, performing arts. dance, film, literature, visual arts, architecture, and pop culture. For years, there has been intense fluidity in the relationship between Mexican and American art.

The twentieth anniversary of the establishment of the Consulate of Mexico in Las Vegas in 2022 is a great opportunity to acknowledge all these historic, societal, and cultural exchanges between Nevada and Mexico. Doing this through the views of local and immigrant artists residing in Nevada is an extraordinary opportunity to look to the future and keep moving forward together. All artists are strongly encouraged to apply.

by Phubiya Oshona Smith aka “Biya” and featuring child artist Braia Smith

On display Saturday Sept. 17 – Saturday Oct. 29, 2022
Meet-the-Artist Reception: Friday, Sept. 23, 6:30 to 9 p.m.

This exhibit "Timeless” is a variety of colorful concepts ranging from abstract to inspirational pieces to simply capture the essence of everyday life.

The works in this exhibit, acrylic paintings on canvas, are from the artist’s personal collection of conservative and diverse pieces with various themes. The artwork includes animals and characters with a variety of colorful concepts.

Phubiya Oshona Smith is a self-taught artist who reminds us that it’s never too late to follow your dreams.

My artwork is a constant search for the best way to interpret things that I see, places I want to go, motivation, love, life, and lots of colors. I do not limit myself to one medium, style or concept. My inspiration and ideas change. My knowledge changes with each piece I create. I create artwork that makes me happy. I love the way that I am able to think of something and paint it. When people see my work, I want them to see I put my heart in every piece. Just knowing and seeing people enjoy my work and what I’m able to accomplish, I am complete and it makes my day!

Phubiya Oshona Smith aka “Biya” was born in Oceanside, California, on a military base. She became a Las Vegas resident in 1980. Born just as unique as her name, which means “joyful birth,” Phubiya entered this world a breech baby (butt first)! Later in life she would become a devoted wife and mother of four and grandmother of two. She has been a high-tier underwriter for a reputable Las Vegas bank for the last 16 years. Three years ago, Biya began to take up painting as a hobby to relax, but most importantly being able to express her feelings and vision to leave a forever impression of herself for years to follow. Her husband heard and obliged by surprising her on her birthday with everything she needed to start her new endeavor. As a self-taught artist, one painting led to another, led to a few, then to a home gallery. She is now one of Las Vegas’ most active mobile paint and theme party coordinators. Biya hosts and facilitates wine and canvas paint parties at Tahiti Village Resort weekly, private parties and event collaborations with other inspired black entrepreneurs in the Las Vegas community. Biya also donates her paintings to cancer patients/survivors, fulfilling her personal goals to touch people’s hearts through her artwork and leave an everlasting piece of her legacy.

Featured child artist Braia

Braia Nyelle Smith was born April 19, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Braia has a great personality. She is very smart and when she turned 11 months old she took up an interest in painting. Her grandmother Biya has been her teacher. Painting has become a regular thing that she loves to do. She now has painted more than 50 abstract pieces, and knows exactly what she wants it to look like at the age of 3 years old. Braia will be an inspirational artist for kids and adults all over the world and to the next generation.
