SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Cali.(KOLO) - A new art exhibit opened Aug. 17 and continues until Sept. 2. It features works made of ashes from the Caldor Fire inside the Haldan Gallery at Lake Tahoe Community College.

.Artist Shelley Zentner has about 30 pieces on display at Lake Tahoe Community College.

They’re made with charcoal from the Caldor Fire, which just had its first anniversary.

As time went on she decided these pieces would look great in an exhibition, so Zentner kept painting.

”Hope was something that kept coming back again and again. I started to find myself drawing things coming back to life, the grasses coming back to life, the vegetation, but also the rising sun,” Zentner said.

Zentner says 100% of the profits from artwork sales go to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
