How to Celebrate ‘Celebrating Life!’

Time again to honor Las Vegas’ creative seniors as the annual Celebrating Life! exhibit returns to the Charleston Heights Arts Center, featuring the work of Las Vegas’ 50-and-older visual artists.

Submissions were solicited for the juried competition by its sponsor, the Las Vegas Arts Commission, and the winners were chosen by jurors K.D. Matheson, Linda Alterwitz and Lynda Whitehair. Awards will be given out in six categories—oil and acrylic painting, watercolor, drawing, mixed media, sculpture and photography—plus a Best of Show award.

Celebrating Life! opens with a meet-the-artists reception at 6-7:30 p.m. May 24, and the exhibit will run through July 13. Admission is free. 12:30-9 p.m. Wed-Fri, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Sat, 800 S. Brush St., 229-1012,
