Latimer art club


One of the founding organizations of the Nevada Museum of Art, it was in Reno, Nevada and was named for landscape painter Lorenzo Latimer (1857-1941). The Club was organized by students of Latimer, who for 19 years beginning 1916 traveled to Reno to teach classes. Minerva Pierce was the first President, and members included Dora Groesbeck and Nevada Riley. For many years, the Club was the only art organization in Nevada. In 1967, it became the Sierra Nevada Museum of Art, whose name changed to the Nevada Museum of Art. Source:
