Artists in action at Tallac Historic Site

Visitors can witness the creative process first-hand when they visit the Artists in Action program at the Tallac Historic Site this summer. Ira Kessey and Sandy Hartley are two of many artists who are participating in the Artists in Action program.

Kessey, who has been working independently as a stone sculptor and glass artist for more than 20 years, will display many of his fine works. Many of carvings in stone have been shipped internationally and one item was presented to Raisa Gorbachev, wife of Mikhail Gorbachev, former president of the Soviet Union, on a state visit to San Francisco. Kessey will be at the Anita Gibson log cabin from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday through Monday until September. He can be reached at (530) 386-2346

Hartley, who has 30 years of glass design experience, will be showcasing many of her stained glass creations. In addition, she will display original fiber art furniture in which she wraps rug wool on wooden dowels and places it in the furniture as a covering. Her art shows include Santa Fe Furniture Expo and being accepted into the prestigious Fountain Hills Arizona Show. She also has taught stained glass classes with Eastern New Mexico University for nine years. She will be at the Anita Gibson log cabin from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Tuesday through Friday until Sept. She can be reached at (530) 544-2935.

The Tallac Historic Site is located three miles north of South Lake Tahoe on State Route 89. Admission is free. For more information call (888) 632-5859.
