After the Show
The tents have been folded and the artists have moved on to the next show, but the memories of the 25th annual spring Fine Arts Festival remain. It was a great show and the Boulder City Art Guild would like to thank everyone who made it such a great success. R.B. Bertrams, Maribeth McLay and Aileen Dike are among those who devoted many hours to making everything run smoothly.

|Some students also volunteered to help. Dawn Green organized the Miss Boulder City contestants to help in the information booth, and the TAC teen group interested in community service picked up trash and cleaned up after the show. The Fine Arts Festival is a large undertaking, but the students who benefit from these efforts through the scholarships supported by the festival have always shown their appreciation. The future looks good with students such as these.
Looking to Mother's Day
Mother's Day is just around the corner. How can you find something unique that shows Mom just how you feel about her? Perhaps a visit to the Boulder City Art Guild Gallery in the Boulder Dam Hotel would be a good choice for an unusual place to look. The Gallery is often thought of as a place to purchase good paintings by local artists, but it is not often thought of for its array of gifts. Unusual and creative pottery by Lynda Whitehair, Craig Corey and Debbie Hagan is featured. There is also an exhibit of hand crafted jewelry pieces by Jessica Sellers and Marie Richardson. The card racks are full of creative and unusual cards. Well known artists from around the Las Vegas Valley and Boulder City proudly display their work in card form. Shirley Jeane, Jane Marquez, Georgine Morelli, and Anne Carter are among those who have cards available. The range of subject matter is vast. Photos of the Southwest, scenic views of Lake Mead, abstract, expressionistic and even hand made one-of-a-kind cards are available. These works stand apart from the “store-bought” variety not only in style but they are limited in the numbers that are produced. “Some patrons buy the cards and frame them as small prints”, stated Gallery Director, Maribeth McLay.
