Downtown is a concept, not a location. Downtown is anywhere, in any town. It’s where ideas flourish when artists mingled. The Downtown Group. The Downtown School. New ideas were born. The style was edgy and new and not widely accepted as art.

Join the Downtown Modernists in its introduction to the community. Founded in Reno, Nevada, in February 2023, Downtown Modernists is a newly formed group of artists hailing from the Reno-Sparks and Truckee-Tahoe region working primarily in the abstract style who are seeking to build a coalition of like-minded artists for salons, group shows, and the exchange of ideas. Their goal is to bring their art to local audiences yearning for original, modern, and contemporary paintings.

This group show by Downtown Modernists features the work of Susan Christopher, Joanna Drakos, Jutta Gietl, Ashley Gottlieb, April Gratrix, Andrea Laue, and Jessamyn Parker.

Join the artists for their reception, Tuesday, July 9 from 5-7 p.m. The show runs from June 17 through July 26, 2024, at McKinley Arts Center, Gallery West, 925 Riverside Drive, Reno, NV 89503. Hours are Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free of charge to the public.
