Award-winning WASC artist reception set for Tahoe City

Staff report

TAHOE CITY, Calif. — Starting this weekend, James Harold Galleries in Boatworks Mall in Tahoe City will feature Lake Tahoe resident Lainie Vreeland's innovative original mixed-media paintings.

Meet-the-Artist receptions for Vreeland's "Essence of Light" exhibit are scheduled for Friday, June 19, 5-7 p.m.; and Saturday, June 20, noon to 5 p.m.

"Blending her creative interests with her love for nature, Vreeland's artistic energies are directed toward imaginative two and three-dimensional compositions centered on God's gifts of earth, water, and sun/moonlight," according to an exhibit press release. "Her unique style and thoughtful textural techniques create an ever-changing perspective, with each imaginative composition transforming as the light and viewpoint changes."

Vreeland was inducted in 2013 into the esteemed National Association of Women Artists, Inc. in New York City. Established in 1889, NAWA is the first established professional women's art organization in the United States.

Vreeland's original two and three-dimensional artistry have shown in the National Association of Women's Artists Gallery, New York City; Riverside Branch Public Library, New York City; Whistler House Museum, Lowell, Mass.; Monmouth Museum, Lincroft, N.J.; The Sylvia Wald & Po Kim Art Gallery, New York City; and The Armory Art Center, West Palm Beach, Fla.

As a multi-award winning artist, Vreeland has also been featured in various magazines and newspapers, and she has several prestigious awards for her artistic work using various mediums.
