Truckee Public Arts Commission in partnership with Truckee Cultural District hosts “Fall into Art” in celebration of the autumn season and Truckee’s rich culture. The exhibit will showcase local artists who represent the breadth and vibrancy of Truckee’s cultural district and draw inspiration from the autumn season through February 2019.

“Fall into Art” was inspired by the regional artists featured during the Art & Soul Art Walk in September. Among them are painters Ali Armstrong, Sara Smith, Aimee Had, Monika Johnson, Mark Larson and Bridget O’Neill. Functional art on display includes Greg Zirbel’s birdhouses inspired by Truckee historic landmarks, Krista Tranquilla’s handmade jewelry art and Mountain Forge iron sculptures.

“Truckee’s landscape in autumn provides the perfect catalyst to creativity; everywhere you look gorgeous colors, varied textures and inspiration abound. We are always excited to highlight the immensely talented artists in this region who contribute to Truckee’s dynamic cultural district,” said Cassie Hebel, executive director of the Truckee Downtown Merchants Association, in a press release. | facebook.com/truckeepublicartscommission
