WNCC Douglas dean gets artwork for birthday gift
Bus Scharmann chose a nice view of Job’s Peak for his birthday, and Western Nevada Community College art student Rayma Rich painted him a picture of the well-known mountain.
Scharmann, dean of WNCC Douglas, was presented with the completed oil painting Monday. He chose the view from several different photos of Valley scenes at his birthday in September, and the work is a gift to him from WNCC staff, according to office manager Diane Nungary.
Presenting the painting to Scharmann were Rich and her painting instructor, Mark Tompkins, who teaches several art classes at WNCC Douglas.
The art classes are being expanded for the spring semester, Nungary said. Art classes are increasingly popular in Douglas County.
An open house on April 16, 1999, will kick off a student art show at the college that will last until the semester ends in May.
New in the spring are various Community Service classes for adults and children under the direction of Deanna Abbott.
Registration for spring classes continues this week. To obtain a catalog, or for more information about art and community service classes, stop by the campus at 1680 Bently Parkway S. off Buckeye Road in Minden weekdays or call 782-2413.
