“Visitors can form an assessment of Trifecta Gallery based on this varied exhibit and we will learn from it in much the same way as a history lesson.” says Marty Walsh, the owner of the gallery. “The current artists are selected through our experience with past artists.” Ten years in the Las Vegas Arts District is a long time, but Walsh claims it doesn’t feel like 10 years at all. “The changing forces of the area have energized, amused, fueled, and verified to us that this is where we belong“. Walsh carefully revises her programming to keep in step with what’s been learned while maintaining the gallery’s ethos and mission.
The gallery began as a group effort between 3 artists sharing a studio space in the Arts Factory. Every First Friday of the month the studio was transformed into a gallery space for a day. Later Walsh left the group, rented a small 250 sq. ft. space down the hall, and officially became Trifecta Gallery in July of 2004. By 2010, with the help of dedicated interns and staff the gallery outgrew itself and relocated into its present 1200 sq. ft. space at the front of the Arts Factory.
