Ceramic creations are provided by Jesse Martin, and masterful silk designs by Colembe Trisan. Chrisi Donovan’s interactive, themed furniture art treasures for children and adults transports one to that magical place of fun and imagination through chalkboards, magnets, crayons, and a mythical creature or two. And, Rustic Tree Creations and Don Augstein’s wood and metal works will showcase their furniture art with reclaimed and natural elements.
You can see and feel the passion for Tahoe-Truckee’s mountain culture and the people who live here captured in Kevin Klein’s dynamic photography and Joanne Corso’s paintings.
And the excitement keeps coming with multi-talented artist Joanne Corso’s hand painted cards, watercolors, acrylics, oils, and silks. Joanne will be in the Market Place ocassionally for sit-down, on-site portraits.
Everyone needs to be pampered and nurtured. With Holly Beatie’s High Sierra Botanicals, there’s plenty of pure, natural, Earth friendly goodies like essential oil scented soaps, face, hand and body creams and lotions, aromatherapy sprays, pet and kid safe medicinals, and more.
