South Lake Tahoe artist Nina Major will be exhibiting her watercolor paintings at the Copeland Cultural Arts Center during the month of October. An award-winning artist, Major has been working on her “Nature Portrait Series” for the past several years. Rather than painting a typical landscape or still life, she creates “portraits” of natural subjects, emphasizing realistic structure and details and dramatic contrasts between light and shadow.

Describing her work, Nina said, “I want the viewer to notice something about my subjects that they would not normally notice. That’s why I normally do a very ‘close-focus’ on at least my focal point.”

Although aspen trees are a favorite subject, Nina recently expanded her subjects to include sea turtles and other tropical subjects after her first visit to Hawaii.

An artist reception will be held on Monday, Oct. 5 from 5-7 p.m. Copeland Cultural Arts Center is located at 1572 Highway 395 in Minden, Nev. Regular hours are noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
