The Virgin Valley Artist Association’s annual Grand Bazaar opened last week on March 28 at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery. The Grand Bazaar will be open until April 28.

Two hours after the doors opened, the Association had already sold more than $1,000 worth of merchandise. With forty talented vendors, there is truly “All Under the Sun” in the way of offering the arts.

Everything for sale is artistically displayed. New this year: the works of art on the walls are also offered for sale. Both gallery rooms are used for this important event.

The client Dorothy Riley said she was impressed by the offers of the bazaar. “There are intelligent minds at work here!” she says.

Everything on display are one-of-a-kind, handcrafted items. This includes paintings that are done by local artists.
“We have thousands of original items for sale created by local artists,” said VVAA President Dottie Golden.

To make things even more interesting, the Mesquite Café Blues Band has volunteered to host a fundraiser for the VVAA later this month on Saturday April 23rd. The band will perform in the pavilion from 1 to 3 p.m. this afternoon. Donations for the VVAA will be accepted.

This all-ages fundraiser will also sell tickets to purchase baked goods, snacks and beverages. The bazaar will also be open.

Buyers Scott and Doreen Strong of Mesquite were happy campers with their purchases. They said they come to the bazaar every year and often come to the gallery throughout the year for the monthly exhibition competition awards receptions.

The Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday to Saturday from 10h to 16h. The gallery is located at 15 W. Mesquite Boulevard. For more information, call 702-346-1338.
