If you’ve ever complained about Las Vegas not having any culture, then you’ve never been to First Friday Downtown Las Vegas. The streets around the Art District are filled with live music, food trucks, and vendors showcasing everything from handcrafted art to cannabis tea. As if that wasn’t enough here’s another reason, my sister-in-law Jeanette Montero has her art displayed once again at the Arts Factory in Downtown Las Vegas.

I’ve bragged about my sister-in-law many times. You’ve seen her art all over Dee for Dentist. Most recently she just returned from Cincinnati attending the Art Comes Alive Awards Ceremony, an “international fine-art contest and exhibit that awards the best emerging and professional artists.” Awards from this contest include gallery contracts, publishing contracts, solo shows, publicity, and cash prizes.

As if that wasn’t enough, we’re so excited that she’s finally got her online store up and running at www.jeanettemontero.com. Prints of her pieces, like the ones above, can now be purchased in a multitude of sizes and mediums. Even cooler, on her website she’s using augmented reality so you can see what her art will look like right on your walls. Tech savvy runs in the family!

You don’t have to wait for the next First Friday to check out her work, you can also follow her art exploits on Instagram: @jcm.art

Congrats again Jeanette. We’re so proud of you!!!
