Sesko_heart_boxJust in time for the holiday season, Carole Sesko, contemporary artist from Truckee, holds her bi-annual open art studio and sale at the end of November.

You’ll find functional art, mixed media, and new contemporary paintings

This year, give something meaningful from the heart, from a local artist.

Personal yet powerful, Carole’s constructivist art is a reflection of her joyous connection with the magical beauty of her surroundings.

Working out of her quaint studio above historic downtown Truckee, Carole creates original paintings, mixed media collage, and functional art.  She has also played an integral role in the progression of the Truckee and North Lake Tahoe art scene over the years.

Sesko_Blue_BowlComing from an architectural design background, Carole’s artwork integrates a variety of coloring and layering techniques to explore our collective experiences of time and place. Most of her pieces include a mix of acrylic paints, wood, canvas, paper, metal, textiles, and a variety of recycled objects to add texture and context. She started painting with acrylic on canvas in 1993 and eventually developed her signature style of layering metallic paint with solid colors to achieve iridescence and vibrancy.

She states that her color palette changes each year, adding that she’s never found a color she didn’t find interesting. Along with powerful colors and textures, music has also influenced her work.

Carole is originally from the Berkshires in Massachusetts, where she received her Associate of Arts degree from Simon’s Rock College, followed by a Bachelor of Science degree in Design from the University of California, Davis. She has lived in Truckee for more than twenty years, and has helped coordinate art exhibits such as ArTour, collaborative projects, and public art installations around Truckee, Lake Tahoe and Reno, Nevada.

Carole’s studio is located at 10326 High Street in downtown Truckee. From the downtown Truckee roundabout near I-80, turn uphill onto High Street. First house on the left. (extra parking next door at Martis outlook.)
