A celebration of what's best in contemporary arts and emerging design

With a draw to the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe and the majestic High Sierra, Reno Tahoe has long been home to a significant fine arts community, with many regionally based artists and bespoke furniture designers featured in the finest galleries in the world. 

The Reno Tahoe International Art Show, which ran for the first time September 8-11, 2022 at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, presented interior designers, architects, consultants and collectors with a wide array of new and better fine arts and furnishings at prices untouched by a pressured market.

Over 200 regional artists joined over 40 galleries and features invited to exhibit from around the world. Art and design enthusiasts enjoyed a lively, sophisticated exhibition filled with beautiful art and creative design, set off by live music performances, on-floor Talks, short film screenings and an impressive Sculpture Walk including a presentation of large-scale Burning Man sculptures and pieces from Buffalo Creek Art Center alumni artists. The RTIA Show anchored a city to lakeside celebration of art and design, which included 20+ live music performances at the Reno Sparks Convention Center, Cargo Concert Hall and the Nevada Museum of Art, a regional awards program with a gala reception held at the Nevada Museum of Art, featured events and exhibits held at the John and Geraldine Lilley Museum of Art and Sierra Arts Foundation, along with special programming at key restaurants, breweries and better retailers in Reno Tahoe.

Additional highlights included a feature from the University of Nevada, Reno School of the Arts, students, staff and alumni and the John and Geraldine Lilley Museum of Art, Sierra Arts Foundation, Sierra Watercolor Society, Latimer Art Club and a unique, curated First Nations, Indigenous Peoples Art showcase.

We look forward to a bigger, better showcase for RTIA Show 2023.
Save the Date: September 7-10, 2023, Reno-Sparks Convention Center.
