Chalk + Cheers: A day of inspiring art, delicious food and refreshing libations.

September 30, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Things worth celebrating: the creativity of our community, Nevada’s outdoor landscapes, food, and libations. That’s why we created Chalk + Cheers, a chalk art competition and art fair that is taking place Saturday, Sept. 30 at Skye Canyon Park from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Chalk + Cheers includes an art fair with a variety of local artwork –paintings, pencil and charcoal sketches, collage, sculpture, and photography, juried chalk art competition with the theme “base camp for the great outdoors,” a freestyle chalk art area, children’s art activities, and live art by former Red Rock Canyon artist in residence Norah S. Siller. There is also a chance to support a local charity, New Vista with Cheers for Charity, and numerous dining options from local food trucks.

The juried chalk art competition will feature artists in three categories that will compete for $1,850 in cash prizes. Attendees have a chance to get in on the fun by casting a vote for their favorite work of art in the People’s Choice Award. The lucky People’s Choice artist will take home a $500 cash prize. If you’ve got creative flair but aren’t up to compete, there will be chalk art supplies and space in the freestyle chalk art area where guests of all ages can create their own chalk art designs.

If you are one to appreciate an artist’s process, stop by and watch artist Norah S. Siller as she brings a blank 60”x60” canvas to life with a painting she will start and finish at the event. Siller says she finds inspiration in the landscape surrounding Las Vegas like Skye Canyon’s backdrop of the Spring Mountains which will be her muse.

Guest can support New Vista, a local nonprofit dedicated to assisting intellectually disabled individuals in our community, at Cheers for Charity. Guests aged 21 and over with proper identification can purchase tickets to enjoy six stations of unique cocktails, beer, and wine. Tickets are $3 for a single sample pour, $5 for two samples, and $10 for four samples. Cheers for Charity runs from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., and all proceeds benefit New Vista.

There will also be local favorite food trucks like Señor Blues, 50 Shades of Green, and Cookie Bar at the event serving up tasty dishes and non-alcoholic beverages.

Mark your calendar for September 30 because Chalk + Cheers is an event that you do not want to miss.
