BEL­LA­GIO GALLERY OF FINE ART

Cel­e­brat­ing the story of women artists, their ac­tivism and artis­tic achieve­ments, “Paint­ing Women” tells a pow­er­ful story of how women artists de­vel­oped in an era when they were yet to be fully rec­og­nized. The col­lec­tion showcases 34 paint­ings span­ning 90 years, and is ar­ranged the­mat­i­cally from the 1870s, the era when fine-arts train­ing pro­grams first be­came avail­able to women, to the mid-20th cen­tury. See it while you can; the ex­hibit closes at the end of this month. Bel­la­gio, (702) 693-7871

PETER LIK GALLERY

En­tirely self-taught, it was a gift of a Ko­dak Brownie cam­era on his eighth birth­day that spurred Lik’s love of pho­tog­ra­phy. The Aus­tralian was drawn to vast, open spa­ces, and in the early 2000s vis­ited the United States to pho­to­graph all 50 states; his book “The Spirit of Amer­ica” chron­i­cles that jour­ney. He’s since been named a “Master Pho­tog­ra­pher” by the Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Pro­fes­sional Pho­tog­ra­phy and the Pro­fes­sional Pho­tog­ra­phers of Amer­ica. Grand Canal Shoppes, (702) 309- 8777; Man­dalay Place, (702) 309-9888; Fo­rum Shops, first floor, (702) 369- 8239; Fo­rum Shops, third floor, (702) 836-3310
