Voices In Color is an art benefit for the North Tahoe Family Resource Center celebrating the creative voices of artists and community members. In its inaugural year, the art show, which is sponsored by local businesses will feature the work of local artists and hold a silent auction fundraising event benefiting the North Tahoe Family Resource Center. The theme of the show is Creating Community Through Artistic Voice. Submissions are due Wednesday, May 21, 2014. Artists are encouraged to interpret the theme broadly from their own unique perspective. Most importantly, Voices In Color joyfully, exuberantly and thoughtfully reminds us of the power of art to transcend struggle and stereotypes to reveal our common ground and celebrate the Tahoe Truckee community. The art show will be held June 8, 2014 in Kings Beach, CA.
Voices In Color is open to any individual living in Tahoe, Truckee, Nevada/Placer County and Reno. The goal of ‘Voices In Color’ is to build Community through Artistic Voice. To that end, professional artists and everyday creative types are encouraged to submit work.
What type of work may be submitted?
Submitted work must be original work, completed by an individual within the past five years, including fine craft, painting, photography, sculpture, graphics (i.e., drawing, printmaking) or mixed media.
