NEVADA MUSEUM OF ART CELEBRATES 90 YEARS AS THE STATE’S PREMIER ART INSTITUTION, HOSTS PROGRAMS FOR THE LATIMER SCHOOL

On this milestone anniversary, Museum to highlight paintings by Lorenzo Latimer, the plein air water colorist renowned for his depictions of the Sierra and Northern Nevada.

One of the Silver State’s oldest cultural institutions, the Nevada Museum of Art, opened its doors in Reno 90 years ago. To punctuate an ongoing celebration, the Museum will showcase over 100 paintings from the San Francisco-based artist and teacher Lorenzo Latimer, along with works by Nevada artists he mentored including Mattie S. Conner, Marguerite Erwin, Dora Groesbeck, Hildegard Herz, Nettie McDonald, Minerva Pierce, Echo Mapes Robinson, Nevada Wilson, and Dolores Samuel Young. In 1921, these artists joined together to formally establish the “Latimer Art Club,” the founding volunteer organization of the Nevada Art Gallery, known today as the Nevada Museum of Art.

The Latimer School: Lorenzo Latimer and the Latimer Art Club opens July 31 and will run through March 27, 2022.

Without the Latimer Art Club’s commitment to the visual arts in our region, the Museum wouldn’t be the institution it is today. It is fitting to acknowledge the foresight of the Latimer Art Club,” said Ann M. Wolfe, the Museum’s Andrea and John C. Deane Family Senior Curator and Deputy Director. “Our institution’s unique emphasis on art, nature, landscape, science, and the humanities sets this Museum apart from other interdisciplinary art museums and has its roots in the history of the Latimer Art Club,” she said. Wolfe co-curated the exhibition, with Jack L. Bacon, a Reno-based art consultant and former gallery owner specializing in historical Nevada art.

Lorenzo Latimer first visited Fallen Leaf Lake on the south side of Lake Tahoe in the summer of 1914 to teach en plein air (outdoor) painting classes. In 1916, he was invited by two students to teach a painting class in Reno. He ultimately became a cherished member of the Northern Nevada arts community, returning annually to teach his signature watercolor style to burgeoning artists of Reno. In 1931, the Latimer Art Club was invited by Dr. James Church, art collector Charles Cutts, and other community leaders to join to incorporate the nonprofit organization known as the Nevada Art Gallery, now the Nevada Museum of Art.

Historic Latimer Art Club paintings–featuring the Truckee Meadows, Washoe Valley, Lake Tahoe, and Pyramid Lake – are foundational to the history of Northern Nevada’s outdoor painting tradition. The Latimer Art Club remains active today, with over 90members who come together for meetings, workshops, and to paint regularly throughout the area.

To truly understand the art history of our region, we must acknowledge the contributions that the Latimer Art Club has made over the years to enrich the cultural fabric our community,” said Wolfe.

The anniversary exhibition will be accompanied by a lavishly illustrated 350-page book with an essay on the history of the Nevada Museum of Art by Wolfe and a biographical essay on Latimer by Alfred C. Harrison, a nineteenth-century painting scholar and art historian with a special emphasis on California art. The book is co-published by Jack Bacon & Company in association with the Museum and is available in the Museum store or online here.
