Vast Space Projects has built a reputation for its genre-defying art shows, carefully assembled exhibition catalogs and multifaceted events. Some Fine Women, the last show before the gallery closes, may be the most ambitious: 84 works of art by 31 female artists spread across three distinct spaces—including a satellite gallery located in a nearby warehouse, needed to accommodate pieces such as “The Scarlet Letter,” a 30-by-40-foot Alexis Smith mural that requires climbing on a ladder to be properly viewed. Spanning photography, video, room-sized installation, sculpture, even lipstick wax, the connecting threads the artists’ gender, an approach owner Shannon McMackin took after being inspired by the “strong, smart women” she met through the gallery. Through Aug. 24, 730 W. Sunset Rd., Henderson, VastSpaceProjects.com.
