The RTIA Show anchors The Reno Creative Movement, a vision to position Reno Tahoe as a nationally recognized center for arts and culture.

INVITING, INNOVATIVE, AND FUN

Live music, Tastings, Demos, RTIA Talks, Short Film, & More

The RTIA Show is a welcoming, lively weekend event with ongoing musical performances, award-winning short film programming presented by Reno-based Cordillera Internationals Film Festival, and local hospitality including fan favorite coffee stations and tastings from Reno Tahoe breweries and distilleries. The RTIA Show is committed to fostering meaningful connections between exhibitors and their audience, offering insightful artist talks, thought-provoking panel discussions, and live demonstrations, that provide attendees with a unique opportunity to connect with the individuals behind the art.

As an exhibitor for both years, I didn’t think it could get any better, but this year it did! Amazing exhibits, amazing coordination with everyone and amazing for the exhibitors as well as the attendees.  Many told me that they didn’t know about it last year but so excited and thrilled to be here this year.  To have all the amazing artists and their creations under one roof can’t be anything but a success!

I've attended both years and it's been different in scale and scope. It's a spectacular event. I plan to attend every year.

I like how the show was set up- some art and classic cars at the front and then once you're inside, it's like a maze of beauty. I did try hard to make sure I got to see everything. I thought having the beverage tables throughout- some coffee, some cocktails- was a wonderful addition, kept patrons there longer, and gave the gallery more life along with good smells from the coffee. Great job!

Attendee

This was such an incredible event! Unbelievably inspiring to see so many artists showing what they can do in one location. It felt like an event at a bigger city, in the best way. It was shockingly kid-friendly, and it was a beautiful thing to take my little ones to see the amazing talent and skill, then actually meet the artists behind the works they loved. A stupendous event.

Loved it. I should have given myself more time or gone back a second day. I had no idea how much there would be or how much time I would spend talking to the artists.

The RTIA exhibit was or surprisingly high quality, and I enjoyed the variety of work, talking to artists, and methods I had not seen before. I will attend next time and invite friends.
