LTCC art show draws more than 400 entries

Provided to the Tribune
Jim Grant / Tahoe Daily Tribune Donna Hughes' terra cotta "Griffin and Snakes" is one of more than 400 art-show entries on display at Lake Tahoe Community College.

Roger Walker’s “Corn Lily Suite” took best in show out of the 442 entries in Lake Tahoe Community College’s annual student art exhibition.

The college invited students who took classes from spring 2007 to spring 2008 to submit up to 10 pieces of work in 17 different mediums.

Walker’s entry is a series of five photographic images focusing on a corn stalk. In her statement, juror Candace Nicol said, “Roger Walker has taken something ordinary and brought attention to the beauty of open insect eaten holes. … The use of grainy film to create a feeling of an aquatint print creates a nostalgic atmosphere and transcends photography into the realm of painting with light.”

The exhibit runs in the college commons through June 14.
