People can get an up-close look at how one artist captures the beauty of the Sierra Nevada during an oil painting demonstration this week.

Artist Charles Muench presents “Pack Mules and Plein Air-Exploring the Sierra Backcountry” this Wednesday, May 11, during the Tahoe Art League’s meeting at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center.

“Charles Muench is an artist living in between the Sierra Mountains and the high plains desert of Nevada,” according to Muench’s online biography. “He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts — with great distinction — degree from San Jose State University. He studied primarily under Maynard D. Stewart, a student of Frank Vincent DuMonds and the son of a renowned Utah landscape painter, LeConte Stewart. After receiving his degree, Charles attended classes at the Art Students League with David Leffel, Michael Burban, Jack Faragasso and others. In 1992, Charles moved to Madrid, Spain, where he painted the city and countryside, studied Velasquez, copied master works in the Prado, and attended classes at the Circulo Bellas Artes.”

Charles was the featured cover artist in the April 2013 issue of Southwest Art magazine. He was also included in the July 2012 issue of Art of the West magazine and has been featured in the June 2010 American Art Collector, among others.

Muench’s work is displayed at the Irvine Museum and he was unanimously elected as a Signature Member of the California Art Club

The senior center is located at 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd.
