CARNELIAN BAY, Calif. — North Tahoe Arts has been a creative force and an educational resource for the visual arts in the North Tahoe area since 1990.

As a nonprofit organization, NTA's success depends on support from our local community.

"The last couple of years have been particularly challenging," says Kellie Cutler, NTA's Executive Director. "Art needs to be available to everybody and we strive to keep our programs affordable. However, we also need to maintain high quality, and every dollar is precious."

With that in mind, this year main fundraiser for North Tahoe Arts will be a picnic and art sale this weekend on the grounds of the iconic Old Tahoe-style lakeside home of Jane and Ron Jenny in Carnelian Bay.

Guests will enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch and an opportunity to purchase original artwork at value-based prices. The art includes paintings and photography as well as sculpture, ceramics, art glass and jewelry.

Art experiences, including workshops, will also be available. To ensure something for every pocketbook, there will also be prints, unframed art and small treasures. All art has been generously donated, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit North Tahoe Arts.

​Reservations are encouraged for Saturday's event. Tickets cost $50 per person to attend. A $100 ticket also includes an annual NTA membership. Sponsorship packages are also available.
