Artist in residence: Apollo

Posted in Local Culture | November 19, 2013 | By Georgette Riley

One of the leading Environmental Artists in the World, Apollo, will be the featured “Fall Artist in Residence” at Forest Suites Resort through December 14, 2014. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the artist, as well as view six of his original Tahoe paintings in the Forest Suites lobby. In addition, Apollo will have an “event book,” reviewing his past achievements, and an opportunity to win a Limited Edition Artist Proof!

Apollo is best known for his Marine Life, Endangered Species, Endangered Habitat and Tropical Art. He combines the style of realism with a touch of animation. Apollo captures the essence of spirit in his subjects and reveals their beauty on canvas. The artist’s mission statement perfectly aligns with our environmental views here at Lake Tahoe:

"The beauty of our planet should be held in respect as well as reverence and awe! As the care takers of this precious jewel called Earth, it is our duty to become more harmonious with our environment; for what we hold in our hands is a trust for future generations. What we do today creates tomorrow." © Apollo

Georgette is a South Lake Tahoe resident and the Tahoe South marketing manager. She loves life outdoors and can usually be found exploring the lake and trails.
