Truckee Public Art Commission invites you to opening reception for ‘Truckee People’

Elijah by Carla Platt.

TRUCKEE, Calif. – A new exhibit of community shows its face at the Community Recreation Center.

“Truckee People – Portraits of a Community,” showcases portraits of all kinds: photography, drawing, painting, collage, print, sculpture, portraits and self-portraits. This show features portraits of a community, by the community, and for the community.

An opening reception will be held on Friday, Oct. 11, 5-7 p.m., with a silent auction including items from the Artisan’s Workshop, Chris Crossen, Carla Stokes, Danae Anderson, Carol Tomasic, Carol Sesko, Pam McAdoo, and more. Support art in the community, and enjoy the fun.

Seventy-five percent of auction proceeds will help TPAC launch its Bike Rack Project, sponsoring local artists to create imaginative and arty bike racks to be installed around town. The balance of the money raised will be used as working capital for TPAC to continue sponsoring community art events, such as art shows and openings at the Community Recreation Center.

Help realize TPAC’s dream of installing art in public places in the community. Spread the word, take your friends, and celebrate the arts in town.

TPAC, the Truckee Public Art Commission, focuses on creating opportunities for public art, installation art, exhibits, and art events. It operated under the Truckee-Donner Recreation & Parks District. Find them on Facebook.
