Music icons subject of Lake Tahoe art display on South Shore
Some of music’s most recognizable faces are hanging in the Foyer Gallery at Lake Tahoe Community College.
Photographer Jim Grant, of the Nevada Appeal and The Record-Courier, is displaying “Music Through the Camera Lens,” 20 images taken at concerts put on annually at Harveys Lake Tahoe in Stateline.
Grant said the images aren’t your average photos; they’re manipulated in Photoshop to look almost like paintings. Some resemble the style used by Andy Warhol, he said.
“I had all these images and I wanted to make digital art,” he said. “It’s something different than the usual Tahoe landscapes.”
The photographer said he’s been working on the project since last fall, slowly but surely manipulating the photos, a process that takes a couple of hours per image.
The display includes images of Sheryl Crow, Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, Ringo Starr, Steven Tyler and others.
It can be seen through Dec. 3. Grant, who also teaches at the college, will give a brief talk about the exhibit at an artist’s reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29.
Lake Tahoe Community College is at 1 College Way in South Lake Tahoe.
