She joined us at age 6 for her first public appearance.  Today, although just 15, her works hang in the Vatican!  Autumn was at the 32nd Spring ArtFest, enchanting guests, talking to young people and sharing her experiences with the audience.  See Autumn at 15 in the photos at the left.

The mission of the Boulder City Art Guild is the promotion of fine art in Southern Nevada.



The Boulder City Art Guild, a non-profit organization established in 1973, is located in the historic Boulder Dam Hotel.  The Guild's Gallery has the distinction of being the first cooperative gallery in Southern Nevada.  The gallery is open to the public and artwork of more than 40 member artists is on display. The gallery is open 7 days a week and an artist is available to greet visitors.


The Boulder City Art Guild carries out its educational mission by:

  • awarding scholarships to graduating high school seniors who enroll in college art courses
  • young artists taking courses at the Boulder City Art Center
  • classes and activities offered by members to the public.  


The art in the gallery includes original works done by the members in acrylic, oil, watercolor, ceramics, metal, glass, wood, photography, pottery, sculpture and limited edition prints. In addition to that, the gallery gift shop has other artful items.
