April Showcase: Yesterdays News.

This coming month Reno Art Works is excited to exhibit the works of a new artist to town, Jennifer Charboneau.  The Minneapolis native will transform the 1995 Gallery with expressive drawings, large scale paintings, writings, and installations.

“Yesterdays News” is the newest collection of J.Charboneau works which explores the artist’s filtered chaos theory while highlighting inspiration from the following influences: Television. Radio. News. album covers. Quotes. Movie stills. Dreams. Random thoughts. Caffeine. People watching. And time.
The show will weave you through chaos and leave you satisfied with a familiarity to the artwork.

An incomplete, in-process painting will be one of J.Charboneau’s featured installations. She will work live within the gallery throughout the month to complete the ~3 foot by 8 foot canvas.

It’s our 4th Anniversary on Dickerson Road!!!! Join us for a RAW extravaganza, live music, live art, spoken word and raffle prizes.

The opening reception and 4 year anniversary event will be March 10th from 6 to 9 pm at 1995 and 2035 Dickerson. That’s right we now have 2 RAW locations on Dickerson Road.


To celebrate we have created an exhibit with all of our artists working on collaboartive pieces.

A show dedicated to showcasing the multidisciplinary collective environment within the 2016 RAW AIR (artist in residence). The works represent collaborations highlighting conscious and unconscious links between the artists in such ways as; medium use, subject matter, artistic ideas, and intentional curation.

RAW is an environment of artists working toward the same goal, to create and share their process with each other and the Reno community.

RGJ documents many of the creative businesses on Dickerson Road.

“People can go to Dickerson Road and see experimental sculpture, rich oil paintings, performance art and hand-forged steel sculpture work, learn ceramics, take an art class in just about anything, take an improv class, buy a succulent, get a keg and get their car fixed,” said Shapiro, RAW’s executive director.”  Read full article here.
