Come Meet-Up With Like Minded People!
Latimer Art Club, also known as LAC, is a 501(c)(7) nonprofit organization, completely run by volunteers, and is dedicated to promoting the fine arts in a wide variety of mediums. It has been said the records of the Latimer Art Club provide a capsule history of Reno’s cultural community during the early twentieth century. We encourage healthy interaction among our fellow artists, as well as the growth and improvement of each person as individuals and continue exercising the body and mind as we learn to grow and improve as individuals. Our membership is an affordable way to join a community of like-minded artists.
With your membership you’ll have access to our meetings which are held every other month, starting in February. We start off the meeting by catching up on club news along with sharing club or member events. This is a great platform for members to announce any of their exhibitions or classes that they are teaching in the community. We love spreading the word throughout Reno and making sure to promote those events through our website and newsletters. It’s important to belong to a club that believes in its members. We have great presenters for each meeting and we finish off with a door prize and 50/50 raffle. 50% of the raffle goes to the scholarship fund. We’d love for you to come visit us. Guests are always welcome. If you like us, apply to be a member.
What does it mean to be a member?
It means you belong to an awesome community!
Membership dues are only $30 a year for Active Membership and just $20 for Associate Members.
The Process to become an Active Member
Contact Susan Christopher to let her know of your interest. Once approved, a prospective new member must bring 3 original paintings or sculptures and a one-page biography with photos to show the membership at our regular meeting. The board and all attending members review the submitted artwork and vote as was stated earlier on the page. The voting will be done by secret ballot and the prospective member must receive a 3/4 majority affirmative vote of the active members present. The prospective member will be notified within the week.
An Active Membership is open to producing painters/sculptors who agree to exhibit new work at the club’s annual shows. Approved Active members will enjoy the benefits of the club as well as the camaraderie of our members.
