TAHOE/TRUCKEE - On Sunday Oct. 21, 30 local artists each plan to donate a piece of artwork with a minimum value of $400 to "A Fine Evening with Fine Art." Each of the 30 guests will leave with one artist's creative piece. This intimate event offers guests an opportunity to meet the artist whose piece of artwork they will take home. All proceeds from the fundraiser go to North Tahoe Arts (NTA) in Tahoe City.
"Thanks to our local artists who continue to support North Tahoe Arts and to our board members, in particular, Jane Jenny and Pam Sutton, who have worked diligently with the Lahontan Lodge staff and local artists to put together this creative fundraiser," said Kellie Cutler, executive director, North Tahoe Arts. "We will be showcasing local talent and offering the community a one-time opportunity to receive a piece of fine art at an exceptional value. We just secured a piece valued at $3,600."
North Tahoe Arts, located in Tahoe City for more than 24 years, has been supporting the arts in the Truckee North Lake Tahoe area with events such as the ARTour in July, summer Kids Art Camps and numerous Art Openings in the Artisan Shop throughout the year.
"We're passionate about keeping art and art activities for all ages a vital commodity in our community. But like most nonprofit organizations, we need community support to keep our passion alive," said Cutler.
A Fine Evening with Fine Art will take place on Sunday, Oct. 21, 4-7 p.m. at The Lodge at Lahontan Golf Club at 12700 Lodgetrail Drive in Truckee.

"We can't thank our artists enough who are donating their art and time to this event. Without them, we'd struggle even more in today's economic climate to keep our programs and Artisan Shop alive. Now we just need community support too. Please join us on Oct. 21 for a Fine Evening with Fine Art," Jane Jenny, NTA board member.
