Kevin Tice will be offered a year-long contract with the world’s largest art dealer and the opportunity to display his work inside the Park West Fine Art Museum & Gallery on the Las Vegas Strip
Following hundreds of submissions, weeks of voting, and judging from a panel of world-renowned artists, Park West Fine Art Museum & Gallery is proud to announce landscape artist Kevin Tice as the winner of its third annual Made in Vegas art competition. Tice, who was selected from hundreds of artists who entered, will receive a contract offer from Park West Gallery, the world’s largest art dealer, as well as a three-month exhibition of his artwork, where his paintings will hang alongside masterpieces by Picasso, Rembrandt, Renoir, and other art legends at Park West’s Las Vegas location.
“With the Made in Vegasart competition, we were looking to shine a light and bring attention to the diverse and immensely talented Las Vegas art community,” said John Block, Executive Vice President at Park West Gallery. “Kevin Tice’s work blew us away, and we are thrilled to not only name him as our 2023 winner but to welcome him to the Park West Gallery Family. We’re looking forward to his journey and know he’ll be a tremendous ambassador for the community."
"I am truly honored and humbled to be named the champion of the annual Park West Gallery Made in Vegas artist competition,” said Kevin Tice. Witnessing the incredible talent of my fellow contestants has been a source of inspiration. Winning this competition is not just a personal triumph, but a testament to the power of shared creativity. I love this artistic journey that I’ve chosen and am grateful for the opportunity to connect with others and share my art.”
Kevin was born in California and was raised in rural Nevada. He now resides in Henderson, Nevada. He is a member of Oil Painters of America and the American Oil and Acrylic Painters Society. He spent his youth outdoors and developed a love for drawing and painting while very young. While fulfilling a career in law enforcement, he continually improved his art through an unorthodox pursuit of art education. "I didn't enjoy the formal approach to art education, so I set out to immerse myself in specific areas of interest, largely due to my own impatience to be able to paint what I was able to see and feel"." While Kevin also paints other subjects, creating a visual impression that recreates a perfect moment of light and atmosphere in elements of our landscape and evokes emotion for the viewer, is what he loves most.
The Made in Vegas judging panel consisted of world-renowned artists and Park West Gallery representatives, including Las Vegas’ own Michael Godard, famed artist Autumn de Forest, former Made in Vegas winner Kat Tatz, local fine artist Melanie Stimmell and Park West Fine Art & Museum Executive Vice President, John Block.
