TRUCKEE, Calif. andamp;#8212; If you have a camera or even a photo-shooting phone, you must have some great photographs of life in Truckee. Maybe it’s a photo of your little brother learning to ride a bicycle. Maybe it’s a picture of your pet. Or a remarkable sunset over Donner Lake, a flower pushing up through the snow, a hot dog skiing or boarding shot, or a group of friends rock climbing or swimming or hiking.To date, the Truckee Public Arts Commission (TPAC) has hosted several exhibitions of work by local artists at the Truckee Donner Recreation andamp; Parks District’s Community Recreation Center, with its stunning natural light and expansive wall space. This winter, TPAC wants to make everyone an artist by sponsoring a community exhibit of everybody’s view of Truckee through the lens. Both film and digital photos will be accepted.Amateur and professional photographers alike, of all ages, are invited to submit up to 12 photographs of the Truckee area for the upcoming exhibit titled “This is Truckee!” Images should be no larger than 8″ x 10,” and printed on premium photo quality paper. They do not have to be framed or mounted. Photographers should add their name and a caption to the front side of the photo. If you do not wish to be identified by the viewing public, please add your name and caption on the back of the page.Look for the entry forms on the TDRPD website: tdrpd.com.Images are due at the Rec Center by 5 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 30, and will be on display at the Rec Center from the beginning of February through May of 2012. An opening reception will be held on the evening of Friday, Feb. 10, 5-7 p.m. to celebrate all the contributing photographers.The success of this show depends on community participation, so don’t be shy.
