Tuscarora Plein Air

Northwest Reno Library
2325 Robb Drive

Ron Arthaud: "From Intimate to Grand: Tuscarora Plein Air"

"... explores the contrast between the vastness of the seemingly endless horizons unique to the Tuscarora landscape, with smaller paintings that zoom in to portray the details of place: a fallen fence, an abandoned car, the shadows off a corrugated roof.

Th artist works on location, or en plein air, preferring the light, color and experience that comes from being in the moment with his subject."

Through May 6.
