Set on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, the Tahoe City Fine Arts and Crafts Festival will give visitors a special opportunity to meet with more than 45 artisans and crafts people showcasing a wide variety of arts and crafts including photography, oil paintings, ceramic vessels, jewelry and much more.

Providing a unique venue for patrons to view original handmade creations while enjoying the outdoors, this free event take places over two weekends, Aug. 16-18 and Aug. 23-25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, at the Boatworks Marina Green in Tahoe City.

This year’s featured artists include Laura Morton. Morton’s studio is in Grass Valley and her medium is metal plates, ink and paper. Morton’s etchings are created with a plate of metal, usually copper or zinc.

A resist is applied to the plate and then an etching needle is used to draw an image. The plate is then immersed in an acid bath, which reacts chemically with the etched area. In this way a printing plate is made and Morton typically creates 30 prints per edition, each numbered individually.

She uses 100 percent acid free cotton rag paper and top quality watercolors and inks. Her framing materials are also archival (acid-free) and designed to last for centuries.

Another featured artist is John Jeffery whose studio is in Blairsden-Graeagle. His medium is wood and metal.

“I appreciate and love the sound of temple bells found in monasteries and meditation halls. Over the past five years, I learned to weld and studied pitch, tone and the art of metal work as I began to experiment with creating my own bells and chimes,”said Jeffrey.

Jeffrey’s wife Nancy helps with design, production and artistic finishes. Together, they enjoy working with recycled materials and the creative process of teasing out the uniqueness of each bell, chime and bowl.

Jennifer Cull is from Penn Valley and her medium is stone.

“All my vases and sculptures are carved using traditional hammers, chisels, rasps, riflers, and then polished by hand with sandpaper. I do it this way because I want to help keep the traditional methods and skills of stone carving alive. When I work I use no inspiration other than the stone itself and the beauty around me. I simply study the texture, colors, grain and shape of the piece I’m working on and try to see what would look most natural as a finished sculpture. Making sculpture into vases has added a fun element to my work and lets the people who own them contribute to the look and feel of their piece,” said Cull.

The event is presented by Boatworks Mall and Tahoe City Downtown Association in an open grassy area overlooking Lake Tahoe between the Boatworks Mall and the Tahoe City Marina at 760 N. Lake Blvd. off Highway 28.
