who WE ARE
Celebrating the HeART of Reno.
Driving the Reno Creative Movement.
The Reno Fine Arts Collective celebrates, promotes and advances the unique creative spirit of Reno Tahoe.
Founded by father-daughter team Kevin O'Keefe and Briana Dolan, the Reno Fine Arts Collective launched as an online and counter gallery in February 2021. The first physical gallery ran as a successful pop-up in downtown Reno from July-November 2021, featuring over 400 pieces of art rotated periodically, weekly artist TALKS and community hosted events. As development is underway for the next permanent location, the Collective continues to grow and thrive, representing local creative talent, presenting and promoting to the world a gallery of what is uniquely special from Reno-Tahoe.
In a wider and more far-reaching project, the RFAC shares in leading an inclusive citywide project that embraces the creative spirit of the region. The Reno Creative Movement aims to put a spotlight on local artists and creators, as well as to mark Reno, on both a regional and national level, as a burgeoning artistic and cultural center. Through the Reno Creative Movement, RFAC envisions citywide events and an outpouring of new community creative energy, attracting art enthusiasts from near and far to be a part of the exciting and inspiring Reno-Tahoe creative scene. The Movement aims to raise Reno's finest artists to a new and alluring stage, setting a powerful creative fire that won't soon go out.
The first showcase of this vision will launch in September 2022 as the region's first international art show - RTIA SHOW.
