Calvin Canepa is hosting a celebration of his recent works on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 6-9 p.m. at the El Dorado Hills Inn Express, 4360 Town Center Blvd.

This is Canepa’s first show in five years and will feature more than 20 unique and beautiful paintings.

Canepa is a premier landscape and still-life artist who paints the South Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, and Mother Lode areas of the beautiful Sierra Nevada in oils.

He has spent the past five years painting and improving his technique.

Canepa was raised in picturesque South Lake Tahoe and was heavily influenced by the splendor and beauty of one of the most stunning areas of the country.

A prodigy, his first paintings garnering regional recognition when he was only in grade school.  He loved to paint and was completely devoted to his passion for art throughout his teen years.

He continued to gain significant regional recognition and success that evolved into a strong San Francisco Bay area following.

Receiving an art scholarship, he attended the Academy of Art, San Francisco, where he refined his skills while studying art history and theory.

Canepa and his family now reside in an area he loves to paint, Placerville. He continues to show his paintings both locally and in the Bay Area. He frequently gives painting demonstrations in Placerville and at wineries in the stunning Shenandoah Valley.

He is active in the local art community and gives entertaining and engaging oil-painting lessons utilizing his 35 years experience.

A portion of the sales from this show will be donated to the El Dorado Community Foundation’s cultural arts fund.
