The Haldan Art Gallery at Lake Tahoe Community College will open selections of artwork from the Hanna Porter and Growdon Family Collections will be displayed in the Haldan Gallery. The show features an array of different mediums, content, and styles from an assortment of national and international artists starting April 18, 2013.
The pieces in these collections have been acquired through a spectrum of strategically planned purchases and serendipitous opportunities.
The Gallery’s mission is to present rotating exhibitions of both historical and contemporary artists to our students and community. The goal of each art exhibition is to intrigue, teach, challenge, delight, and in some way, expand gallery visitors’ knowledge of art. A variety of instructional tools will accompany each exhibition to enhance our visitors’ learning experience.
For the past ten years, Art Department faculty have worked with the administration and foundation to develop a realistic plan for an art gallery able to serve our community. Through donations from many community groups and individuals, the SLT Soroptimist Club and the administration and foundation board, the Art Gallery and Discovery Center have become a reality!
The gallery is closed Saturday-Monday.
