Lake Tahoe Community College hosting artist receptions
Lake Tahoe Community College is kicking off 2018 with a trio of free artist receptions and exhibit openings.
The festivities, including free refreshments, will take place on Thursday, Jan. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m.
In the Haldan Art Gallery inside the library building will be Tony King and Pamela Glasscock’s “Recent Works.” The couple will also host a free artist talk at 5:30 p.m.
In 1974 Glasscock met her future husband, King, in New York, where the couple pursued their careers until the early 1990s, according to a press release. During this time, Glasscock focused on landscape and still life in silverpoint, a Renaissance drawing technique.
In 1992 the couple relocated permanently to Sonoma’s Freestone Valley. After the move, Glasscock began to paint flowers from her own garden and those of her friends. King began focusing on vivid plein air paintings.
More recently, he’s worked on a series of large-scale paintings of coastal images, showing the “chaos at the edge of land and water.”
In the Foyer Gallery located in the fine arts building will be photographer Les Allert’s “Tailings.” After studying photography at Mohave Community College in Arizona, Allert began creating large format, fine art photography, which he’s been practicing for more than 20 years, concentrating on landscapes, modern and historic architecture, and most recently, abstract features found in these subjects, according to a press release.
After moving to Alpine County in 2007, Allert began taking photography classes at LTCC and has participated in the annual Student Art Exhibit each spring.
In the Student Gallery centered in LTCC’s main building commons will be new works of art by the talented members of the Tahoe Art League.
All of these exhibits are free to attend, and will remain open until March 23.
The Haldan Art Gallery hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., closed on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.
The Foyer Gallery and Student Gallery can be accessed Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
