RENO — Local artists and photographers will create works for the fifth annual Winnemucca Ranch Mt. Rose show at 3 p.m. Tuesday with special guest Vivian Olds, granddaughter of Sarah Olds, who homesteaded Winnemucca Ranch.

The paint-in will take place at Pyramid Highway and Winnemucca Ranch Road. The effort is in protest of the zoing of Winnemucca Ranch by the city of Reno for 12,000 homes. This needs to change. The artists also are interested in development along the Mt. Rose corridor.

The annual Winnemucca Ranch/Mt. Rose show will take place Nov. 17 at the Hobson/Salvagery Collective Gallery. The show will benefit Voters for Sensible Growth, a watchdog group that encourages infill and opposes sprawl.
