Meet photographer Les Allert and enjoy free refreshments at an Artist Reception for his new show, "Tailings," located in the Foyer Gallery in the Fine Arts building from 5pm-7pm on Thursday, Jan. 18.

Allert developed a strong interest in the biological sciences while collecting reptiles with his neighborhood friends back in Simi Valley, where he went to high school. He went on to earn his bachelor’s degree from California State University, Northridge in Biology. He worked for the federal government for 30 years, starting at Yosemite National Park as a naturalist. His talks often relied on slide photography, which began his interest in 35mm photography. 

After studying photography at Mohave Community College in Arizona, Les began creating large format, fine art photography, which he’s been practicing for more than 20 years, concentrating on landscapes, modern and historic architecture, and most recently, abstract features found in these subjects. After moving to Alpine County in 2007, Les began taking photography classes at LTCC and has participated in the annual Student Art Exhibit each spring. He strives to expose viewers to new ways of looking at the environment around them, and to see those often overlooked things in it.

Two other Artist Receptions will also be held on LTCC's campus from 5pm-7pm on Jan. 18. In the Student Gallery centered in the Main Building Commons will be an exhibit of the latest works from the members of the Tahoe Art League. And in the Haldan Gallery located in the library building will be "Recent Works" by Tony King and Pamela Glasscock. An artist talk will be held at 5:30pm that evening in the Haldan.

Stop by to meet all of the artists and enjoy free refreshments with your fellow art lovers! All of these exhibits are free to attend, and will remain open until March 23, 2018.
