Each   artist has personal history with the region—Roianne Hart’s grandfather built a cabin during WWII for his family in Southern California to run to in case of an attack from Japan and Alicia Meheen and family lived in the historic Kirkwood Inn while her contractor husband Jack was building the Kirkwood Meadows development. Anne Downs has enjoyed the area’s scenic hiking trails for many years; Carol Parker and Roianne Hart take advantage of the fantastic skiing. But it anne downs 300ppiwasn’t until ten years ago when Alicia Meheen, Carol Parker Roianne Hart and Anne Downs decided Tahoe would be a great place for a group painting excursion. Thus began a tradition of trips to the Lake graciously hosted by Roianne Hart’s 94 year-old mother, Eleanor. The group’s dedication to painting brought them to Tahoe in all seasons and all types of weather conditions. Anne Downs recalls, “After painting all day, it became our custom to return to a warm house where Eleanor, martini in hand, presided over a welcoming ‘happy hour’. Eleanor became our greatest cheerleader and inspiration and reveled in our creative output.”

    Although Eleanor has passed on, Roianne, Alicia, Anne and Carol still carry on the tradition and continue to enjoy their martini “happy hour” in her honor. “The Painter’s Trail to Lake Tahoe” is dedicated to Eleanor’s memory. In addition, the four artists will host a Meet the Artists Event, a “Happy Hour” Panel Discussion which will take place on Friday, September 12 from 5 to 6 pm. Wine and martinis will be served and the event is free of charge.
