Former art department chairman Foster to speak


David Foster will be the presenter for the March meeting of the Tahoe Art League at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center.

Foster was chairman of the art department at Lake Tahoe Community College from 1976 to 2008, when he retired after the spring quarter. He is largely responsible for the program and facility at the college, including the Haldan Art Gallery, his dream come true.

As a full-time instructor, he taught art history, drawing, design, color, life drawing, painting, watercolor, photography, ceramics, sculpture and bronze casting. In 1995, he initiated and conducted the college’s international art study abroad summer program. He is currently teaching the color class and anticipates participating in future programs abroad.

Retirement has allowed Foster to spend more time working on his art. This fall, he returned to Pietrasanta, Italy, to work in one of his favorite mediums ” the marble Michelangelo used. David will debut one of his marble sculptures, “Wall Street”, which he created in Italy last fall. For more information, visit

The Tahoe Art League meets from 7-9 p.m. the second Wednesday of the month at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Guests are welcome. Visit
