Carrying On A Tradition of Art Excellence In Reno For 100 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.
It’s official, this book has gone to press. Hardcover, 376 pages filled with comprehensive historical essays, newly discovered photographs, and hundreds of full-color images of paintings by Lorenzo Latimer and the founders of the Latimer Art Club. A unique tribute to Nevada’s rich art history and celebration of the centennial anniversary of the Latimer Art Club. The exhibition opens at the Nevada Museum of Art on July 31st.
