Love Art? Martin Lawrence Gallery opening at The Forum Shops

 They say everything is bigger in Las Vegas, and the team from Martin Lawrence
Galleries took that statement literally by building and opening what just may
be the  biggest art gallery in the
United States in the heart of The Forum Shops at
Caesars.  With more than 26,000 square
feet of gallery, exhibition and event space, the new Martin Lawrence Galleries
is a masterpiece unto itself.  It has
soaring 80 foot ceilings to a 20-foot tall neon “
ART” sign to huge “guillotine” walls that can
be raised and lowered to feature special exhibitions to an enormous projection
wall and booming sound system. Both the physical space and the amazing art will
be sure to awe and inspire. 

In addition to the main gallery
area, there will soon be a spectacular exhibition/event space which will become
home to

premiere art events, one-of-a-kind art exhibitions and distinctive pairings of
fashion, food and entertainment with the exciting world of art.  “We couldn’t be more excited about bringing
our collections, our artists and our international expertise to
Las Vegas,” explains Gallery Director, Stacie
Goulet.  “We have been looking for the
right space for many years, and when we saw this amazing location within The
Forum Shops, we knew we had to create a very special gallery space.  We didn’t build it big just for the sake of
being big.  We wanted to showcase a range
of art and artists that would appeal to the novice as well as to the collector
– that is what Martin Lawrence Galleries is all about.  Whether you are looking for a unique Warhol
or Chagall or  signed limited edition
prints by one of our exclusive artists such as Philippe Bertho, Robert Deyber,
Felix Mas or Erté, you can find it in our gallery.” 

Accessible and inviting, The
Lawrence Galleries in The Forum Shops was created
to enable the guest to discover and enjoy art around every turn.  With its soaring ceilings, bright lights,
incredible music soundscape and visual arts projected on the main back wall,
walking through the gallery is an escape from the sights and sounds of the
Strip just beyond, but at the same time, just as exciting to experience.  With a range of art that spans the spectrum
from the hundreds of dollars to the millions of dollars, and features
everything from original works by Picasso and Warhol to hand-signed
serigraphs  by Erté and Robert
Deyber,  the Martin Lawrence Galleries
brings art to a new level for both Las Vegas residents and tourists alike.

“While the gallery space has
already exceeded our expectations, we cannot wait to open the next phase of the
gallery,” adds Ms. Goulet.  “There is
truly nothing like it in
Las Vegas or maybe anywhere.  We are creating a place where art will take
center-stage as only it can in
Las Vegas. 
With over 13,500 square-feet of additional space, its size  and scope will allow us to bring events and
exhibitions which will not be seen elsewhere, as well as allow us to showcase
work of brilliant magnitude.  We want to
get extremely creative and work with our neighbors here in The Forum Shops,
Caesars Palace, The Colosseum and the community to
create amazing evenings where art will wrap itself within the worlds of
fashion, food and entertainment.”
