Animazing Gallery At Grand Canal Shoppes At The Venetian And The Palazzo Las Vegas Continues To Connect The Las Vegas Downtown Arts District To The Strip

 

ANIMAZING GALLERY AT GRAND CANAL SHOPPES AT THE VENETIAN AND THE PALAZZO LAS VEGAS CONTINUES TO CONNECT THE LAS VEGAS DOWNTOWN ARTS DISTRICT TO THE STRIP

 

WHAT:
Animazing Gallery at Grand Canal Shoppes inside The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas
is proud to continue their collaboration with the Downtown Arts District by helping to support and bring awareness to the Las Vegas art community. The third in a quarterly series of events called Art Connect showcases one local downtown artist each quarter.

The much-anticipated event will feature artist Alex P. Huerta of Peacenart Studio. To commemorate the evening, Huerta will have exclusive artwork available at Animazing Gallery during the event.

WHO:
Alexander P. Huerta is passionate about art and artistic expression. He was an employee for Harrah’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino for 13 years. After experiencing the ups and downs of life and some difficulties with his health, he one day walked into a gallery and came face to face with one of Pablo Picasso’s paintings titled “Le Rêve.” Huerta often speaks of this moment as the “marker moment” of his life, the day “when God got his attention about Art.” With no formal art education or even the desire to be an artist, gazing at that vibrant color palette and that beautifully imperfect painting he realized that moment would forever change the course of his life, and so it did.

“I consider my art to be a glimpse of the world in which I live in or a question about the same,” said Huerta. “Because my view of the world and my many questions can be so diverse, you will find my art to be its parallel. I organize my questions and/or explorations by the collections I create and maintain.”

Huerta currently owns and runs his own studio and gallery located in The Arts District of Downtown Las Vegas.

Last night, 90 gorgeous Tropic Beauty Model Search contestants took the D Las Vegas by storm, arriving downtown in style in the property’s luxury limo buses to pose for photos and sign autographs for fans – including the D’s owner Derek Stevens, Pawn Stars’ Corey Harrison and the D’s headlining entertainer Frankie Scinta.

Pretty in pink in Tropic Beauty crop tops, the women were runway-ready thanks to sponsoring host Rain Cosmetics as they strut their stuff across 3rd Street Stage, posed for photos at the D’s LONGBAR and signed calendars for crowds of fans on Fremont Street Experience.

Hailing from across the globe, the stunning models are in Vegas this week to compete for the crown of Miss Tropic Beauty – and a lucrative modeling contract. The women also enjoyed zip-line rides on Slotzilla, soaring high above Fremont Street – a perfect opportunity to let loose and have some fun before the fierce competition is underway this week.

Rick Harrison mints “The Old Man” for a special Pawn Star Birthday

Rick Harrison mints “The Old Man” for a special Pawn Star Birthday

Pawn Star shows respect to his Dad by creating a specially engraved medallion.

 

Rick Harrison, of HISTORY’s “Pawn Stars,” planned early for “The Old Man’s” birthday this year. For a man who has nearly everything, Harrison had to get creative when coming up with a special present to commemorate his Dad’s 71st birthday. Being the savvy collector that Harrison is, he and the Gold & Silver Pawn staff came up with the idea of creating a silver medallion embossed with “The Old Man’s” face, now available for purchase exclusively at the pawn shop.

This special piece was presented to “The Old Man” Friday, March 2, in a special celebration at the pawn shop. Family, staff and fans were all in attendance as Harrison presented the handcrafted medallion to his Dad. Afterwards, everyone was able to enjoy a marble cake with buttercream frosting endorsed with a picture of “The Old Man.”

Also in attendance was country superstar Randy Travis and his entourage, who surprised everyone with a special appearance for “The Old Man.” Travis gave the crooner a special edition guitar that he signed for him while at the shop signing, “Great to meet you. God Bless.”

The medallion was commissioned with Sunshine Minting, Inc. based in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and struck at their operation in Henderson, Nevada. Sunshine Minting is the world’s largest manufacturer of silver and gold for bullion and their products can be found at the Pawn Shop. The first mintage of this medallion will be strictly limited to 1,000 pieces and will only be sold at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, priced at $60 each.

The pancake that sells the most at the end of the week will be declared the winner with $1 from each of the three celebrity pancakes sold to be donated to the charity of the celebrity’s choice. Rick Harrison has chosen Child Focus, Joey Fatone has chosen the Fatone Family Foundation and George Wallace has chosen Smile Train.

Harrison’s sweet tooth gets the best of him with the combination of chocolate and peanut butter for his pancake while Fatone’s pancake features Reese’s pieces designed with the pieces as eyes and chopped bacon as the mouth of a smiley face. Meanwhile, Wallace keeps it exciting with his Hot Cake Special pancake, coated with strawberry frosted flakes served with a hint of cinnamon and maple syrup with bacon on the side. Any one of these is the perfect delight for any breakfast lover.
