SPRING ART EXHIBITS AT LTCC

Lake Tahoe Community College will host free artist receptions Thursday, April 14, from 5-7 p.m. The public is invited to celebrate the talents of LTCC’s faculty, staff and students. The event offers a chance to meet the artists whose work will be on display and enjoy light refreshments.

In the Haldan Gallery inside the library building, works created by LTCC faculty and staff will be showcased. Each member of LTCC’s Art Department, faculty and staff alike, was invited to share two pieces of their artwork. Many of the people who make up LTCC’s Art Department are practicing and professional artists in their own right. You can meet the artists, including faculty members Phyllis Shafer and Bryan Yerian, and learn about their techniques at a free talk in the Haldan Gallery at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday.

In the Fine Arts Building’s Foyer Gallery, just outside the Duke Theatre, there will be an exhibit of photographs taken by LTCC students enrolled in a once-a-year Death Valley landscape photography class taught by Pat Leonard-Heffner and Richard Johnson. This photography class has been offered for over a decade, providing students with an opportunity to explore the diverse and stark beauty of Death Valley over a two-day trip each spring. To capture the park’s beauty in different light, students rise early to catch the sunrise and then work through the afternoon for gorgeous sunset opportunities. This exhibit will feature some of the best photos taken by students in this class over the years, including works by Rosalie Brady, David Mori, Peter Larson, Tom Martin, Les Allert and Kurt Buttstadt.

Both of these exhibits will be open to explore through mid-June. Haldan Art Gallery hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Fridays 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Foyer Gallery can be accessed Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For more information about these exhibits and LTCC’s Art Department, contact Phyllis Shafer at 530-541-4660, ext. 251, or send an email to shafer@ltcc.edu.
