Landscapes to be featured in guild’s gallery inside hotel

Landscapes by Keith Noble will be showcased throughout July in Boulder City Art Guild’s gallery.

Noble began painting while living in Carlsbad, California, inspired by the seascapes and landscapes of the coast.

In 1994, he moved to Las Vegas, where he was inspired by the beauty of the desert area. Much of his painting is done outdoors.

He joined the Boulder City Art Guild in late 2017.

A reception in his honor will be held from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, July 7.

Noble’s work will be on display throughout the month. The galley is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free.

The gallery is inside the Boulder Dam Hotel, 1305 Arizona St.
