It was a great day on March 26, 2011 when Ruel James had a grand opening of his gallery at 2121 Industrial Road #215 in Las Vegas NV. Friends, family, local entertainers and the media were present to honor Ruel and celebrate the grand opening of his studio.

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was done by Tony Sacca as he officially cut the ribbon and opened the Gallery to the mass of well wishers who attended.

Manager Douglas Crawford and Ruel James announced that they were entertaining offers from all over the world for Ruel’s paintings and artistry. Ruel’s paintings and sculptures are fascinating and they touch the heart and soul. His love comes through as he molds and forms the clay, bringing them to life and creating a masterpiece of love.

Joseph LaVigna, the Executive Singing Chef catered the event and the dessert table was outstanding. Joseph should add Smiling to the chef title because he has a beautiful welcoming smile and everyone loved him and his food.

A silent auction was held at the event and Ruel donated an original painting and ten percent of all proceeds and sales will benefit the Las Vegas Valley Humane Society.

Car art, Black art and Celebrity art are just a few artistic forms of his creations. I found myself wandering in and out of the rooms of the gallery over and over again, gazing and admiring the beauty his creations.

Admiring the sculptures and paintings were Victoria Alexander, Tony Sacca & Rob Goald.

One of my favorite paintings is a black & white portrait of Sheryl James which is displayed in the entry of the Gallery, amongst all the vibrant color paintings in the room. It boldly stands out and it is mesmerizing.

And last but not least is the remaining mobster’s heads, resting in peace. The Mob Experience will have a Media opening on March 29, 2011 at The Tropicana. You will see the mobsters throughout the show with some dressed in their original clothes. Next weeks story will feature The Mob Experience.
