Eva Salyer
I Heart Art

Eva Salyer - I Heart Art
advisory note: contains strong art and language

     If you are a human with emotions, I’d like to share with you Eva Salyer’s online art show, I Heart Art. Salyer is a working artist, dee jay, designer, and all-around force for positive creativity and growth. She burst onto the South Tahoe art scene by way of San Francisco, bringing her vivid colors, strong brushstrokes, and passion for honoring one’s inner spirit throughout life’s challenging, joyful, unpredictable, exciting, and difficult journey.

     Eva Salyer is an emerging artist but not in the traditional use of the term. She has been creating since early childhood and selling her art since she was six. Salyer has emerged as an artist-inspirator to motivate positive action and healing through art.

     I first met Eva Salyer several years ago when she was exhibiting and selling art to fundraise for the High Vibe Society Artisan Collective. Since then she has continued to fundraise and help local non-profits with her time, energy, and hands-on efforts.

     Today, Eva Salyer is promoting her work and message, both in person and online at She is also focusing on her latest vision, Legion of Live Artists, a fiscally sponsored non-profit organization working towards grants for a living wage for visual artists who perform and demonstrate their art at live events.

The Art of Cherie Pinsky
Keynote Records and Books
2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd, South Lake Tahoe, CA
Daily 11 am to 5 pm

Painting by Cherie Pinsky

Cherie Pinsky - Virginia City School House

     Enjoy the Art of Cherie Pinsky on display at Keynote Records and Books. One of Pinsky’s favorite subjects is historic Bodie, CA. Now a ghost town and historic park, Pinsky brings us back in time as visitors to this once boomtown, walking among the wooden structures and stepping inside to explore the trappings of late 1800’s everyday life. Pinsky’s linoleum prints evoke the Arts and Crafts movement from the turn of the century and include images of some of South Lake Tahoe’s older cabins. Her more playful scenes will take you skiing and meeting friends at the top of Heavenly.

     Keynote Used Records and Books has been a South Shore staple for over 30 years, bringing you an extensive collection of books and music, including popular favorites, collectibles, and rarities. Known for its wide selection of 78's, Keynote is the perfect backdrop for Pinsky's art, providing in-store play of original 78 rpms on an antique hand-cranked turntable.

Reno Tahoe International Art Show 2023
Reno-Sparks Convention Center
September 14-17, 2023

image from Reno Tahoe International Art Show


     The RTIA Show will be anchored in Reno-Sparks Convention Center's Hall 3, a 60,000 sq ft space located directly behind the main entry and Registration Lobby (preliminary floor plan will be released in the coming weeks). The show will again occupy the Registration Lobby, but this time for new special features rather than the Heart of Reno presentation. A colored carpet will direct attendees from the main entrance, through the Registration Lobby and into Hall 3, where it will continue to direct traffic through the show. The RTIA Show will still be made up of three components, the Galleries & Features, Sculpture Walk and Heart of Reno, which will now include Foundations, showcasing artists originally from Reno Tahoe who are now living and working elsewhere. Additional space will also be provided for selected independent artists seeking to join the fair from around the nation and the world. Taking place September 14-17, 2023, the new RTIA Show dates reflect the decision to secure the best available space at the center, avoid a direct clash with NYC's Armory Art Fair, and build a much grander "After Burn" 2023 sculpture market. Thank you for being a part of the RTIA Show story!
