Art in our Showroom
BVW Jewelers Gallery features exhibitions of established and emerging artists in our Reno, Nevada showroom. We focus on showing dynamic visual art with a strong focus on local artists. We believe that art is integral to cultural values, and continued growth of social awareness. Therefore, a percentage of the commission the gallery collects when an artist’s work sells goes to a Greater Northern Nevada community charity.
Back-Pack Kids is a Food Bank of Northern Nevada program that provides nutritious, easy-to-prepare weekend food for selected students at 22 Washoe County Schools. Back-Pack Kids targets homeless children and children showing signs of chronic hunger. These children depend on school meals during the week but have little or nothing to eat on weekends.Do you want to help? Call them at: 775-331-3663.
In Our Showroom: Emily Reid
Emily Reid is a local art teacher in Reno, and also teaches classes in Truckee, and Virginia City. She lives on a tiny 2-acre farm with a collection of about 30 cast-away animals that inspire some of her artwork. Her animals get bad-ass names bestowed upon them by her human child, like Butterfly Sparkle, Midnight Dragon and David. To accompany her animals’ fantastic names, she paints them in bold colors and patterns. She hopes that her artwork brings joy to your personal space in your homes and serves as symbols of the virtues our spirit animals and friends share with us.
Emily studied art in Florence, SC, Bozeman, MT, and Sydney Australia. And last year licensed a commissions series to West Elm that is sold internationally.
The rainforest animals you see here were created for a children’s picture book, “Jillian The Chameleon” written by David Anthony Clark, which is expected to be in print in the next year!
