Nevada’s Oldest Art Club … Est. 1921

Carrying On A Tradition of Art Excellence In Reno For 103 Years.

Latimer Art Club, also known as LAC, is a 501(c)(7) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the fine arts in a wide variety of mediums. We encourage healthy interaction among our fellow artists, as well as the growth and improvement of each person as individuals.  We encourage skill development in creative young people by granting yearly educational scholarships.

Lorenzo Latimer greatly influenced Nevada’s artists in the early 1900s. He was a successful artist and teacher in the Bay Area of Northern California and traveled to Reno, Nevada many times a year to teach  outdoors known as Plein Air painting.  In 1921 a number of Latimer’s Reno students organized the Latimer Art Club. Early members of the LAC, known as “Latimers”, became a strong organization supporting the arts in Reno. Today the “Latimers” keep the legacy strong ensuring growth for many more years to come. 

Club Meetings

During the meetings, attendees are treated to presentations by artists or members of the community as well as having the chance to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow artists. We welcome everyone, regardless of age, ability, race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.
