Knuttle Art Gallery, Commissary Latin Kitchen, 103° Hot Pilates: Triple Touchdown for Vegas!
High End yet Humble: Graham Knuttel Embraces Vegas
The Knuttel Gallery, the first high-end art gallery located at the Venetian-Palazzo Resort, held its Grand Opening celebration in Las Vegas this past Saturday. The event featured a ribbon cutting by Sheldon G. Adelson and an unveiling of Graham Knuttel’s latest masterpiece. Celebrity attendees included Chef Rick Moonen, Chef Alex Stratta, Miss Asian Las Vegas, Prince Lorenzo de Medici of TLC’s Secret Princes, Chloe and Murray Sawchuck, Jarrett and Raja, John Payne from Raiding the Rock Vault, and Paul Shortino of Quiet Riot.
“I am so humbled by the tremendous turnout the gallery saw,” said Knuttel. “I have come to see Las Vegas as a second home and some of the city’s best have invited me in. It’s more than I could have hoped for.”
Knuttel’s work is instantly recognizable for its boldly colored canvases featuring characters with attitude and a playful dissonance. Many of Knuttel’s paintings and sculptures have come in themes with many depicting edgy chefs, nightlife settings, mobsters about to draw down on each other, anthropomorphic wildlife with flair, as well as a broad range of culinary subjects.
Graham Knuttel’s paintings and sculptures have been acquired by an array of celebrities, including Frank Sinatra, Sylvester Stallone, Whoopi Goldberg, Colin Firth, Michael Stipe, and Viscount Linley, the nephew of Queen Elizabeth. Director John Herzfeld commissioned Knuttel to paint Robert De Niro. Several prestigious institutions such as Goldman Sachs and the William Morris Agency have also counted Knuttel canvases among their displayed art.
