The Entertainment Capital of the World Becomes a Visual Arts Mecca With the Debut of the World of Art Showcase at the Wynn Las Vegas December 20-22, 2012

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire -03/28/12)- While singers, comics, Broadway shows and aerialist circus shows continue to dominate the showrooms on the celebrated Las Vegas Strip, the Entertainment Capital of the World is finally giving the visual arts the "premiere destination" spotlight they deserve with the highly-anticipated debut of the inaugural World of Art Showcase ( at the Wynn Las Vegas December 20-22, 2012.

The groundbreaking vision of David Goldstein, COO of Jerry's Artarama -- the world's most loved art material supply company -- the World of Art Showcase (WOAS) is very much a cause to reestablish the arts to their rightful place within society. It is an exclusive show for professional artists from across the U.S. and around the world to sell their art and make important personal connections with art buyers, collectors and galleries.

Fashioned as a harmonized presentation of the finest original contemporary paintings, the exhibition is fast establishing itself as a world class cultural event. Its primary goal is to promote the most talented contemporary painters in America, with work ranging from classical to modern.

Collectors are encouraged to view, compare and reserve favorite paintings on the World of Art Showcase online gallery, and then later at the show meet the artists/galleries who painted/represent the works and make purchases directly from them. The show is also open to potential art collectors and general visitors who may have thought about investing in art but need guidance. Goldstein and Executive Director Mario Parga see this as a completely new way of viewing and buying art, reflecting the start of a completely new age for the arts.

Goldstein, a passionate art collector, and Parga, a musician, professional artist and Las Vegas resident, chose the Wynn Resort as their desired venue for WOAS for its amazing style and luxurious atmosphere as well as owner Steve Wynn's reputation as one of the world's top 10 private art collectors.

The prestigious presentation of artwork on display in the two vast ballrooms at the Wynn is the centerpiece of a multi-faceted three-day "Celebration of the Senses" that includes live music, dance, boutique bourbon, fine wines, handmade chocolates, pastries, gourmet food and culinary arts.
