The community is invited to three free art exhibit opening receptions at Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC). On Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibits include printmaking by artist Emmy Lingscheit in her show “Departure,” housed in the Haldan Art Gallery in the library building. In the Foyer Gallery in the Fine Arts building, explore recent paintings by artist Kelley Hackleman in her show, “Slightly Disheveled,” and In the Student Gallery in LTCC’s Main Building, artworks created by regional high school students will be on display. Cash awards will be given to the winners during the reception.

Light refreshments will be served at all three receptions, and the artists will be on-hand to discuss their techniques and inspirations. All three exhibits will continue to be open to the public through mid-March.

For those interested in printmaking, the LTCC Art Club is also hosting a free printmaking demonstration with Lingscheit on Friday from 3 to 5 p.m. in Room F101, followed by a slideshow and lecture at 6 p.m.

Lingscheit was born and raised in South Dakota. She earned a BFA in painting from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, and also studied art at Palacky University in the Czech Republic. She later worked at the Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis. Her work has been included in several national and international juried exhibitions and invitational exchange portfolios. As a Graduate Teaching Associate at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, she taught printmaking and art foundations courses and also traveled to Poland for a residency supported by the printmaking program. She continues to make and exhibit her work while also teaching printmaking full-time at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

South Lake Tahoe native Hackleman studied under LTCC art instructor Phyllis Shafer. This will be her first solo show, featuring oils on canvas that are darkly humorous, portraying the natural world in slightly odd, quirky ways. Each canvas tells a narrative, but it’s up to the viewer to decide what that narrative is. “I want the viewer to be able to look at a piece and find their own meaning, create their own personal story, without the distraction of my thoughts and feelings getting in the way,” Hackleman said.
