Art Trek for February 24th, 2023

~Photos and Story By Dana Nöllsch~

This week’s Art Trek for February 24th was more ambitious than planned. There are many great shows and exhibitions that you should check out. As it is the month’s end, many galleries will change over to the next show. One of the shows next month will have two of my photographs alongside those of some of the best fine art photographers in the area; we will talk more about that in the next Art Trek.

So check out this week’s offerings.

Artists Co-op Gallery

There are still a few days to see the February, Nevada Landscapes show at the Artists Co-op. The show is up until the 28th and features some of the best artists in the reno area. An added treat is a featured artist, Emmy Award-winning graphic designer, and artist James Gayles

Visit the Artists Co-op and see the Nevada Landscapes show it is gone.

The next show at the Artist Co-op is Photo Fandango. This show will be curated by Marilyn Newton and will have spectacular photos from many area photographers.

The Artists Co-op is Open 7 days a week – 11 am – 4 pm

627 Mill Street   Reno, NV 89502  775-322-8896


We went to TMCC when the main gallery was not open, so we did not see Desert Ephemeral by Megan Berner. But we will see Berner’s work at the reception on March 1st at 5:00.

Here is what we did see.

Red Mountain Gallery: Urban Repetition by Courtney Sennish

Sennish’s work is large-scale urban-inspired sculptures that are quite intriguing and beautiful in their rawness.

Erik Lauritzen Gallery: Southwest Landscapes by Gerald Franzen

Lauritzen’s work uses film cameras and darkroom printing to capture the beauty of stone formations in stark black and white. 

Red Mountain Student Gallery: Winter Weavings by Linda Pinching

Pinching’s work is stark white wall pieces with intricate designs seemingly embossed to create beautiful meditative designs. 

These three artists’ work is worth the drive up the hill to the TMCC Main Campus.

We also walked around the Red Mountain Building and found art around almost every corner. 

Here are some photos of what we saw.

McKinley Arts & Culture Center

McKinley Gallery East is featuring the exhibition “Multifarious.” “Multifarious” runs until 4/7/23 and features artists from the NNV Wander Society. The Wander Society is a group of art teachers who encourage each other to create and show their work.

McKinley Gallery West features the work of artists from the Artists Co-op in their exhibition “Northern Nevada Artists” This is the second place we have seen The Artist Co-op this week.

These two exhibits have a diverse and delightful feeling that is just perfect for an afternoon art excursion.

Sparks Library

Sierra Watercolor Society has its exhibit “TRANSITIONS” at Sparks Library through March 31st.

I was taken with several pieces in this exhibition. Check out the photos and see what I mean.

Makers Paradise

Makers Paradise at the Reno Public Market is progressing with its plans to improve the gallery space and maker’s space. If you are looking to purchase some new art, you just may find just what you are looking for at Makers Paradise.
