LAS VEGAS (Oct. 16, 2013) - World-renowned artist and founder of "Metaphorical Realism," Vladimir Kush, introduces his newly-expanded gallery inside the premier retail destination in Las Vegas, The Forum Shops at Caesars, with a special Grand Opening celebration on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 3 - 7 p.m.
For the debut of the new gallery, the Russian-born painter and sculptor will be joined by the former mayor of Las Vegas and mob defense attorney Oscar Goodman for a book signing of Oscar's new book “Being Oscar.” During this rare gallery appearance, Kush will present and unveil “Waiting for Oscar” – an original painting dedicated to Oscar Goodman based on Kush's previous work "Waiting for Luck.” Additionally, there will be an art auction with media personality "The Voice of Vegas" Bart Torres of the Las Vegas Connection serving as the Master of Ceremonies.
The 3,200 square-foot gallery, designed to best showcase Kush’s collection of original works of art including paintings, bronze and silver sculptures, and a full jewelry line, is complete with a designated space for intimate musical and artistic performances in support of local charities.
“This new gallery is a testament to the human spirit embracing inspiration, imagination and creativity,” said Kush. “We have had a decade-long presence at The Forum Shops and in Las Vegas; I am so pleased to offer an expanded space that is truly a unique setting where art, dreams, music, originality and magic all come together.”
Kush Fine Art is conveniently situated inside The Forum Shops at Caesars on the second level across from the retail center's iconic spiral escalator. An additional location can be found in the Miracle Mile Shops adjacent to Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
