Art League hosts watercolor artist

The speaker/demonstrator for the Tahoe Art League’s June meeting today will be Kate Aubrey. Aubrey has been a watercolorist for the last 33 years and has recently expanded into multimedia works, including combinations of watercolor with gouache, pen and ink and/or pastels.

She especially enjoys working out in nature creating plein air landscape paintings. Florals and figures are also favorite subjects. She is best known for her series of old Nevada steam locomotive paintings featuring volunteers at the Nevada State Railroad Museum.

Aubrey’s exhibits include a solo show at the Silver State Gallery in Reno and a dual location group show with three other artists, “Broads Abroad,” sponsored by Sierra Arts Foundation. “Broads Abroad” was also exhibited in Winnemucca, Nev.

A self-taught artist, Aubrey has studied with noted artists Stephen Quiller, Charles Reid, Carol Orr, Ted Nuttall, Don Andrews, Lian Zhen and Mike Bailey.

Corporate collectors include Reno’s Renown Hospital, the Carson-Tahoe Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, First Independent Bank and the Reno Hilton.

Aubrey teaches drawing and watercolor classes at the Truckee Meadows Community College Continuing Education campus, as well as classes and workshops at her studio off Geiger Grade.

The TAL meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd., from 7-9 p.m. and open to all. Visit for more information.
