A Las Vegas Symphony of Art by Cheng Yajie
 
Cheng YajieRenowned Chinese painter Cheng Yajie’s unique style developed from a wide variety of international influences and experiences garnered throughout the artist’s career.

His drawings and paintings reflect the early influence of “social realism” from his studies in China during the 1980s, as well as the dreamlike qualities and symbolism of “fantastic realism,” for which he is internationally known.

He currently resides in Singapore, but is traveling to Las Vegas for this special showing.
The public is invited to an opening reception to meet the artist at THE STUDIO @ Sahara West Library

Date: Friday, August 12
Time: 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
 
The exhibit will run through October 1. Co-sponsored by the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation. For a complete list of gallery exhibits, visit www.lvccld.org.

It's Not Too Late To Join The Club Read Fun

Club Read
Club Read, the Library’s summer reading program, started June 1 and already thousands of children and teens have participated to brag about their growing book lists, enjoy free programs, and great win prizes. Even babies can participate with a family member to read them stories and it’s not too late to join in. Bring your kids to any branch to pick up their reading log and let the wild rumpus start!
 
What’s so important about summer reading? Studies have shown that children who read during the summer avoid “summer slide,” a decrease in their reading skills. Club Read is designed to keep children’s skills high while motivating them to explore new experiences through reading. The program runs through August 20.
