Haldan Gallery Artist Reception

Meet artists Tony King and Pamela Glasscock and enjoy free refreshments at an Artist Reception for their new show, "Recent Works," located in the Haldan Art Gallery in the library building from 5pm-7pm on Thursday, Jan. 18. They will also host a free artist talk at 5:30pm - all are welcome!

Glasscock was born in Colorado and studied fine art at Stanford University. In 1974 she met her future husband, Tony King, in New York, where the couple pursued their careers until the early 1990s. During this time Glasscock focused on landscape and still life in silverpoint, a Renaissance drawing technique.

The couple spent summers in California until 1992, when they relocated permanently to Sonoma's Freestone Valley with their two sons. After the move, Glasscock began to paint flowers from her own garden and those of her friends. Her drawings and watercolors of flowers are meticulously rendered, created with amazing scientific precision.

King, a Massachusetts native, originally started at Stanford as a science and math student. But after his sophomore year and a few art classes, King left to study drawing and painting for a year at the New York Studio School before returning to Stanford to compete his BS in math. After the couple's move to Sonoma, King began focusing on vivid plein air paintings. More recently, he's worked on a series of large-scale paintings of coastal images, showing the "chaos at the edge of land and water.”

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 Foyer Gallery located in the Fine Arts building will be photographer Les Allert's "Tailings." Free refreshments will be served at all three locations, so stop by to meet all of the artists and enjoy treats with your fellow art lovers! All of these exhibits are free to attend, and will remain open until March 23, 2018.
