Carrying On A Tradition of Art Excellence In Reno For 100 Years, the 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 throughout the state. Healthy interaction among our fellow artists is encouraged, as well as the growth and improvement of each person as individuals. The LAC encourages skill development in creative young people and provides yearly educational scholarships to eligible art students.
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.
Come out and visit the Artist Co Op Gallery and meet with local artists and enjoy all the Gallery has to offer.
