July 23 to July 29 on stands now


Artist Jude Bischoff interprets the beauty of the Tahoe-Truckee region from the mountain peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the wildflower-lined creeks and rivers to the iconic black bear in his vivid and colorful artwork, including “Plein Air Forest Bear” depicted on our cover. “These sensory experiences dance across my paintings with purpose and life force.  Harnessing life’s beautiful wildness with vision and insight delivers the viewer of my paintings a world of joy, rhythm and unbridled aliveness,” Bischoff says of his work. Bischoff is one of the many artists participating in the first Truckee Open Art Studios Tour from July 24 to 26 in venues around Truckee. See Arts for details. | judebishcoff.com
