Arts events roundup
Wines on the Lake and several other Heavenly Village boutiques and stores are offering a Wine Walk from 2 to 5 p.m. this Saturday to support the nonprofit Tahoe Arts Project.
Cost is $20 and includes a wine glass with the TAP logo, along with a map of Heavenly Village highlighting participating stores. Check in near Wines on the Lake.
A raffle will round out the event with local merchants donating a variety of prizes. Raffle tickets are $5, and the winner does not need to be present.
Proceeds will go toward fees for TAP’s 2008-09 season. The arts project’s programs provide more than 5,000 K-12 students the opportunity to experience live performing artists.
The mission of Tahoe Arts Project is to provide cultural enrichment and diversity for the community through the arts and education with focus on youth. For more information, call (530) 542-3632.
The Underground Artists and Tahoe Arts and Mountain Culture (TAMC) will present “Tahoe: Lost & Found,” a juried art show and auction one year after the Angora fire.
The theme of the show is to capture a sense of what was lost in the fire, as well as what was found in individuals, as a community and in the landscape.
The show is open to all media and encourages out-of-the-box thinking.
Visitors will be able to read about the latest adventures of photographer and artist Jim Stamates, including a recent tour he guided to Costa Rica.
Stamates’ blog also includes information on his “Theory of Rhythms,” photography, nature and new company, In the Rhythm Tours and Workshops.
