The Tahoe Art League invites the public to participate in a demonstration by Thaleia Georgiades to learn how to add drama and interest to artworks through changing the point of view. This event will be held as part of its monthly meeting on March 11, at 6 p.m. at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center and is free to the public.

Georgiades has lived in California for more than 30 years and her passion is to spend as much time as possible exploring and painting the landscape — especially the Sierra mountain regions. Her home and studio are located just below crest of the High Sierras. Whenever possible Georgiades packs on foot or horseback into the high country to camp, paint, photograph, fish and explore, but she also loves to travel and paint throughout the western states. Georgiades’s work has been exhibited all over the country and continues to earn numerous national awards. She has a comprehensive background in art that includes a degree in art and education, graphic art and a variety of independent studies with many well-known artists. She is experienced with many different media, but currently works almost exclusively with pastel, which is a dry form of pure pigment (not chalk). Georgiades prefers to paint the landscape, but she often depicts a variety of other subjects as well. Much of her work is produced all or in part on location (en plein air), and she prefers to finish a painting all in one sitting (ala prima), but she also produces larger work from her studio.

The Tahoe Art League meets the second Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, located at 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe. The public is invited to attend. For more information visit http://www.talart.org/.
