     Local Ceramic Artist and Sculptor Guy Gilmore met with Make Tahoe to talk about his latest show, "The American Dream", opening on Thursday, October 11, 2018 from 5 to 7 pm at the Lake Tahoe Community College Foyer Gallery. Lake Tahoe Community College is located at 1 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe, California. The Foyer Gallery is located directly inside the entrance to the Fine Arts Building. "The American Dream" will be on display through the entire fall quarter. Admission is free and the exhibit is open to the public during normal business hours, which includes evenings and weekends when classes are in session.

     All of the work you will see in "The American Dream" was made locally by artist Guy Gilmore, right here at the Lake Tahoe Community College Art Department, but the message displayed is of national concern. If widespread drug addiction is due to drug abuse, what would you call abuse of capitalism through unmitigated greed? "The American Dream" exposes the dark reality of this American nightmare, the Opioid Epidemic. Gilmore has created a visually powerful exhibit of ceramic, bronze, and mixed media work to get your attention. He shares his story and message in hopes of helping others avoid the trap.

from the event announcement:

"Tahoe Timescape" is a public art project by experimental philosopher and artist Jonathon Keats that will photographically document the next thousand years of environmental change in the Lake Tahoe Basin. The project will deploy four Millennium Cameras around all four shores of Lake Tahoe, each one taking a thousand-year-long photographic exposure between 2018 and 3018. The exposures will not only show the view in front of the camera, but also record how it develops over time, revealing dynamics ranging from urban development to climate change. The exhibition will feature site documentation and project materials from "Tahoe Timescape" as well as work made by SNC students depicting their visions of Lake Tahoe in one thousand years.

     The panel talk will take place in the Prim Library from 5 to 6 pm. Speakers include Jonathon Keats, Geoff Schladow, and Russell Dudley. Mia Hanak will be the moderator. The reception will take place in the Tahoe Gallery from 6 to 8 pm. Check the facebook event for further information and updates.
