Ever hear about the Art Salon of Paris in the 1800's and New York in the early 1900's. Our artist friends agree that we need a place today to gather, discuss the arts, show current work and reflect on past artist's work. It is an experiment, testing to see whether the topics that intrigue us have meaning and significance beyond a select few, and seeking to create a time/space within which we can stir a lively, rigorous discussion about the state of art - local, national and international - yours, mine, and ours. Karl Blomseth initially created Fertile Minds Foto Workshops and this Art Salon is an extension beyond the narrow focus on photography. We have regular, monthly Art Salon gatherings where both new and confirmed artists meet, together with willing amateurs.

NOTE: It is our intention to build bridges, not to tear bridges down. We are not here to judge, jury or critique any artists' work.  If artists want critique of work, it is up to them to seek out a mentor in their own field.  The audience and guests are encouraged to be positive and supportive of the artists, not judgmental.  Our mission is to have fun and to LEARN ABOUT ART in a safe environment.

Respectfully yours,

Karl Blomseth, founder

Wendy Blomseth, co-founder

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
