Foldvary-Anderson awarded artist of the year

Artist/designer Carol Foldvary-Anderson has been recognized by the community of Carson City as Artist of the Year. The awards are sponsored by the Nevada Appeal and Cat 10 of Carson City.

The former South Lake Tahoe resident was recognized for her 20 years of involvement in the arts on various levels. She has designed and created public works of art for Western Nevada College, designed more than 15 mugs for the souvenir market in the San Francisco Bay Area, created T-shirts that are distributed nationally and last year was honored with the creation of the Carson City 2000 Silver Millennium Coin that was minted at the Carson City Mint.

The Nevada State Legislature gift shop commissioned Foldvary-Anderson to render an illustration of the building in Carson City and also depict an illustration representing the Assembly Chambers. Her involvement with the community extends to her teaching talents in the areas of calligraphy, drawing and fun art projects, which she teaches to both children and adults at Western Nevada Community College, Brewery Arts Center, Valhalla with the Tahoe Tallac Association, Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department and in Reno with Sierra Arts.

In acceptance of the award she said, “I am honored to be recognized by the community as Artist of the Year. I find great encouragement in the fact that what I have found to be my love and passion being seen as a contribution to many lives in the community in which I live. Your acceptance of my talents ignites the spark to further my dreams and accomplishments in the arts.”
