Roger Kinnaman - The Other Side of Reno
Metro Gallery in City Hall hosts paintings by local artist Roger Kinnaman. “The Other Side of Reno” is a collection of work that showcases the cultural and environmental assets of the Great Basin. Kinnaman’s show focuses on three areas: the Sierra Nevada Landscape, local dance artists and still lives that are inspired by Reno’s music scene. Kinnaman is a former college instructor who continues to push his own technical skill through the representation of diverse subject matter.
Roger Kinnaman received his MFA from Indiana University and has taught at Lake Tahoe Community College, Truckee Meadows Community College, Western Nevada Community College and the University of Nevada, Reno. Kinnaman’s work has been shown nationally and is a part of the collection of the Nevada Museum of Art. His artwork is in the permanent collection of The Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia and he has been a supporter and donor to The Winter Weekend Auction that has raised funds to support President Carter’s work in the areas of health and world peace. Kinnaman has received numerous awards from the Nevada Arts Council and from Sierra Arts.
