A few days ago, we set out to find beauty and expression in local art. We found a new 17-foot Bronze Statue of a female Native American Fancy Dancer, a collaborative show from two nurses, some surreal paintings, and a celebration of spring flowers and gardens.
So join us for Art Trek, June 3rd, 2023.

Native American Cultural Elements for the SBX Project on East Second Street
Part of the work NDOT has been doing on the I580 freeway includes a celebration of the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony (RSIC). The latest piece is a 17-foot Bronze Statue of a female Native American Fancy Dancer. There are also wolves, native american symbols, and photo tiles with images of local dancers from the tribes.
The new bronze statue was made by Mr. Dustin Payne of Dustin Payne Western Art Gallery in Cody, Wyoming. Payne worked with the Cultural Resources Program to design this beautiful sculpture. Lorri Chasing Crow, Modeled for the statue and is the RSIC Pow-wow Club Coordinator.
There will be a celebration event when the last element is installed, and I will let you know when that is after it is officially announced.
Located at the I580 freeway exit at East 2nd Street, this art park is something you should see. The park has no parking; we parked on a side street and walked half a block to the park.
Check out the photos from our visit.
As we parked our car in midtown, we were treated to a mural by Joe C. Rock. Be sure to keep your eyes open when you travel around Reno for the public art around just about every corner.
“Figures & Abstracts” at Wallspace Gallery
This month at the Wallspace Gallery is a Collaborative Show with the artwork of Corrine Canavero and Hannah Saarinen. This is the first show for both of these talented artists. Their work is very impressive and professional.
Both Canavero and Saarinen are nurses, so some of their artwork has an anatomy theme. These were some of my favorite pieces. These artists’ works complement each other’s very well, and you should stop by the Wallspace Gallery next time you are in MidTown.
Here are some photos to give you a taste of Corrine Canavero and Hannah Saarinen’s show.

“Samuel J Foote” at The Savage Mystic Gallery
If you like Surreal Art, and who doesn’t, then you will want to see the art of Samuel J Foote. Foote’s work draws you in with the vibrant colors and sense of movement. His surreal pieces will excite your imagination with their playful imagery.
Here is an excerpt from Foote’s bio on his website.
Hopefully, I can occasionally amuse, exacerbate and entertain you as we all row our boats gently down the stream, for after all,,, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream. 😉Samuel J Foote

“Wildflowers and Gardens” at the Artists Co-op
With summer upon us, the Artists Co-op offers a group show with flowers and scenes from the garden. Michelle and I spent a bit of time with each piece of art; we found the variety to be very entertaining.
This show is a fundraiser for Step 2, an addiction treatment facility for women with dependency issues. Seeing the arts community stepping up to help this worthy cause is outstanding. Remember, when you purchase a piece of art anytime during this show, you will be helping Step 2 to help those in need.
As a bonus, the Artists Co-op has Cathryn A. Cowan as this month’s guest artist. Cowan has a way of capturing the beauty of the wild horses at Washoe Lake.
Here are some photos from the show and from Cathryn A. Cowan.
