A colorful depiction of cottonwoods in the Reno area during Autumn, circa 1930s - 40s. Housed in a period frame under glass. Original Brundidge's art store label attached to reverse in a clear sleeve.    

About the artist…

If anyone could be described as a matriarch of the visual arts in Nevada, it would be Minerva Pierce. Pierce is arguably the best-known artist from the Latimer Art Club—named after California artist Lorenzo P. Latimer—which flourished in Reno during the 1920s and 30s.

Latimer frequently journeyed to Nevada to teach painting classes, helping students like Pierce to become regular exhibitors and art instructors in Reno. 

Pierce is also important for having supported local arts organizations in and around Reno, notably as a charter member of the Nevada Art Gallery, better known today as the Nevada Museum of Art.

Her exhibitions included the Nevada Art Gallery, Brundidge's art store, the University of Nevada Library Gallery, and the Nevada Art Association. While living in San Francisco, she exhibited at the de Young Museum, the Legion of Honor, and the Oakland Art Gallery. In 1938 her work was exhibited at the Third Annual Exhibition of American Art at Rockefeller Center in New York City.
