Oil painting wins art league contest
Barbara Gustafson, a member of the Society of Decorative Painters, won first prize in the Tahoe Art League’s March art contest for her still-life oil painting titled “Tea and Onions.” Visit the TAL Art Center, 3062 Lake Tahoe Blvd., beginning in April to view Gustafson’s works.
Lady Jill Mueller of Washoe Valley, Nev., won second prize with her moody impressionistic watercolor, “Highland Mist – Scotland.” To learn about opportunities to study and travel to locations such as Scotland or France, or to paint locally with Mueller, check http://www.ladyjill.com.
Third prize went to Nina Major for “Happy Face,” her watercolor of a honu (turtle). Her prize-winning honu floats toward the viewer, aglow with reflected light in a pastel green sea. Major’s art is on display at the East Fork Gallery on Highway 395 in Gardnerville.
All three pieces will be on exhibit for one month at the Lake Tahoe Community College library and also are available to view at http://www.TalArt.org.
