    Heavy Metal: Does this sound like a headliner rock band to you? No, it’s not a rock band, but well describes the March/ April exhibit at the Las Vegas Arts Council (Gallery 140) featuring artists out of New Mexico Highlands University’s foundry.

    The exhibit will be on display from March 5 to April 29. The gallery is open, usually, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. An artist reception is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 10 at the Las Vegas Arts Council.
