In the city of neon lights, glitz and glam, there is still the desire to create a beautiful environment enhanced by art. Whether it is a piece of sculpture, painting, photograph or other wall hanging, buying art is a very personal decision guided more by what one loves rather than a price tag. However, for those on a budget or not buying art as an investment, finding affordable pieces to be treasured can be daunting. There are numerous places to find great art at a reasonable cost in southern Nevada as described in Top Places To Buy Local Art For Less Than $100 In Las Vegas, and some new places to explore to purchase creativity at the right price.

Blackbird Studios is a cooperative exhibition space, gallery and art studio in the Las Vegas Arts District with a satellite gallery in the Container Park. Owned by Gina Quaranto, who works with paint and mixed media, she created the gallery as a place for new and established artists to show and sell their work in a creative and family-style environment. The satellite gallery was opened as an extension and a way to be part of the revitalization of downtown and its growing young urban population.

Located in the Fremont East downtown district, the building that houses emergency arts was a medical center before being converted to a collection of galleries with a coffee pub as its hub. Since its many galleries were designed as examination rooms and the lobby was transformed into a gathering space, the owners decided to incorporate emergency into its name and the keep the structure intact while repurposing the building. With two stories to explore, the artists and their work are eclectic with an urban vibe and bohemian appeal.
