Artist Dave Russo has donated a giclee of his original oil painting “Emerald Bay Sunset,” valued at $800, to benefit the work of the Tahoe Art League. The drawing will be held at the Autumn Art Expo from 12-9 p.m. Oct. 1-2, hosted by the Horizon Casino Resort.

The Autumn Art Expo is free to the public, offering hundreds of pieces of art, photos, sculpture, and the works of fine artisans. Meet the Artist receptions will be held from 4-8 p.m. both evenings and will feature live piano jazz by Vince Crudele, refreshments, hand-painted wine glasses, prizes, and the final drawing for Russo’s piece.

Russo is an internationally acclaimed master painter who studied with Picasso during his teens. Russo teaches at the Lake Tahoe Community College and also invites local and visiting artists to paint plein air (outdoors) with him every summer.

Chances for this painting, as well as for art by Jill Mueller, Bonita Paulis and Phil Stevenson are available at the TAL Art Center, 3062 Lake Tahoe Blvd., and at the Showcase Gallery at the Ski Run Center near the Red Hut.
