The inaugural Reno Tahoe International Art Show (September 8-11, 2022) now presents interior designers, architects, art consultants and collectors with an array of new and better fine arts and furnishings at prices untouched by a pressured market. Over 200 regional artists will be joined by over 40 galleries and institutions invited to exhibit from around the world. The show anchors a citywide celebration of art and design, complete with a music festival, awards program and ongoing hospitality.

Reno Tahoe is home to a significant concentration of highly talented fine artists. Over time they have gravitated to this beautiful environment and more recently been joined by waves of new artists as a result of COVID and a changing environment at many larger metropolis regions.

In visiting the in place art fairs, we look for galleries that have what is unique and distinctive in historic, museum quality art as well as galleries that present talented contemporary artists in the full range of styles and pricing. Interesting sculptures are of keen interest as well as galleries that can feature beautifully designed art in furniture. We are most interested in providing an exhibition that is valuable to our audience. Designers, collectors and HNW buyers want unique and distinctive art and objects. If they find it at our show, we become a must attend art and design fair. That’s the end goal.
