More than 30 incredible works from local artist David Holsey will be on display at the Lassen County Arts Council’s gallery on Cottage Street during the month of October, and the Council has a big reception planned for Tuesday, October 8th.
Holsey, a well-known local musician for the past 50 years, expanded his artistic interests several years ago to include painting and drawing. After retiring he began studying art at Lassen College, focusing his talents on graphite pencil drawing and oil on canvas.
His works have been displayed in a visual arts presentation at Lassen College and his earlier work was shown at the Arts Council’s gallery in 2011 and 2012.
Holsey’s art was also displayed in a local law office for two summers.
Holsey loves to discover new mediums and venues for his artistic expression. Working with poet Art Porter he illustrated a book for the Lassen County Historical Society and is currently studying printmaking and the history of Asian art.
The prolific artist is in his 4th year of academic study and the presentation at the Lassen County Arts Council’s October art show will include 32 paintings and drawings created in the last year.
Everyone is invited to attend the gallery opening at 807 Cottage Street, October 8th, beginning at 5:30p.m.
