LAS VEGAS — The Sin City Gallery has opened a special exhibition featuring the work of the late pin-up photographer Bunny Yeager.

Admirers of retro aesthetics are in for a treat, as the legendary “pin–up girl” photographer's first solo show, titled "Bunny’s Bombshells,” opened on Thursday and will be displayed through July 20, 2014. The curators say this is a rare opportunity to see and enjoy the golden age of this visual style.

Yeager started out as model in the 1950’s, and only picked up a camera to take her own portfolio shots. She quickly found a calling: as talented as she was before the camera, Yeager proved to be a genius behind it.

Yeager brought a unique point of view to a formerly male-dominated craft. Beauty, lightness and spontaneity became the trademark in the pictures of Bunny's girls. She discovered Bettie Page and made her the icon of the 1950’s she remains today, and was the first woman to have shot for Playboy, and has created some of the magazine's most emblematic covers.

Yeager’s work stayed relevant in the 1960’s as well. She photographed Ursula Andress in James Bond’s "Dr. No." Other famous Bunny girls include Maria Stinger, Lisa Winters, Joyce Nisari, and Burlesque Hall of Fame founder Dixie Evans.

Guests for the first exhibition in Las Vegas are her agent Ed Christin and Berlin-based gallerist Helmut Schuster. The Schuster gallery is a partner of the event in Las Vegas.

“We are very honored to exhibit the works of such an influential and prolific artist as Ms. Yeager in Las Vegas," said gallery owner Laura Henkel. "Not many people know that Bunny started her career in Las Vegas. I hope many will take the opportunity to see her work in person. It certainly is a rare opportunity to have access to one of the most recognized contemporary art portfolios that continues to influences art and culture.”

The next exhibition of Yeager's work will be presented by Gavlak Gallery at Art Basel Miami later this year. Yeager passed away last month in Miami at the age of 85.

Sin City Gallery is located off the Strip in the famous Arts Factory, situated in the heart of downtown Las Vegas’ thriving arts community, at 107 E. Charleston Boulevard, Suite 100. Hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 1 to 7 p.m. The gallery was named one of the best 25 galleries in the United States by the American Art Awards for 2012 and 2013. The gallery’s TV exposure includes the Travel Channel’s “The Ethical Hedonist” episode featuring Las Vegas, as well as programming on The Oxygen Channel. For information, updates and exhibition calendar, call 702-608-2461 or visit SinCityGallery.com.

Gallery Schuster Berlin, established in 1989, was one of the first gallery newcomers to the reawakened art scene of the reunited Germany. The gallery has received the highest critical acclaim from its beginning. Gallery Schuster also regularly participates in the major international art fairs including Basel, Miami, New York, Berlin and Cologne.

Gallery Schuster cultivates networking relationships with major museums and international collections. In the year 2011 Galerie Schuster took the responsibility for the contemporary art section of the Dezerschauhalle Miami. In the year 2012 Helmut Schuster was elected as the Art Director of WEAM Miami and also Art Africa Miami.

Since 2014, Schuster has been the official consultant of the Art and Architecture Department at the Florida International University. The gallery's exhibition program and its represented artists, centers around emerging and established international art.
