Spring in Reno

Spring is here! (Kinda - it's actually snowing today.) But it seems like everyone in the Reno art scene is looking forward to Summer art shows & events. 

Luna Maya Marketplace is continuing their monthly, first weekend marketplace. We'll be out of town in May but look for Anna there on June 3, 4, 5; July 1, 2, 3; August 5, 6, 7; and September 2, 3, 4. And if you are an artist who wants to show/sell your art, shoot us an email and we'll set you up.

Micano Home & Garden has a few of Anna's pieces, specially commissioned by Sam Sprague for his rustic, steampunk, farm, industrial themed store. The Vincent (above) is the first in a new series. Stop by the store to see the latest.

painting of his wood burl root that
looks like a horse.

Anna is very excited about the opportunity to show with Connections, at the Annual yART Sale, July 9th, 2016, during ArtTown. 20% of all sales benefit Arts for All Nevada. She'll be sharing a big booth space with Lynne Bunt (gourd artist,) Craig Johnson (metal & woodwork,) and Brenda Retterer (glass artist.)

Anna just dropped off a commissioned painting for Bill Harvey of Fred & Wilma's on Moana, in Reno. He calls the tree root that looks like a horse, "the horse that never was."

Dave has been posting a daily "View for the day" on his Instagram page and other work on his Flickr page. A few examples below:
