Northern Nevada's Landmarks Collection
At first glance, Reno Nevada doesn't look like an artist town. A second look reveals artists paintings in coffee houses, sculpture in galleries, watercolors in artists shows and much more. Northern Nevada is home to one of the best artists; ROY POWERS. For many years Roy has been noted for his unique vintage paintings of Reno, famous landmarks and surrounding area. THE NEVADA HISTORICAL SOCIETY recognized Roy for his work as a significant historical statement and, in 2001, organized a three-month display of his paintings at the NHS gallery on the University of Nevada campus. THE NEVADA MUSEUM of ART also recognized Roy's work as a Nevada Artist with an exhibit - A fragile presence: local landmark paintings of Roy Powers at the museum. ROY POWERS has been a familiar face in Reno's community and the Northern Nevada scene for more than five decades. His career in advertising and publicity led him into a leadership role in local civic activities. He launched the Reno Junior Chamber of Commerce and served as President of the Reno Chamber of Commerce. He is one of the original organizers of the Reno Air Races and served on the Board of Directors for 13 years. He has been honored as Reno's Young Man of the Year, Reno's Civic Leader of the Year and has been initiated into the Air Race Wall of Fame.
