Art Galleries

Carson Valley’s art community is vibrant and prolific.  Local artists abound, producing beautiful locally-themed paintings of landscapes, wildlife, and ranch life, all of which can be professionally framed right here.  For those who prefer more tactile art forms, many local artists and crafters turn out glass and ceramic pieces, pottery, woven wearable art, and gorgeous jewelry designs of sterling silver, gold, turquoise, and beads.  The visitor can find this local art in a variety of galleries, shops, and artists’ co-ops throughout the valley, most conveniently located along the Highway 395 corridor in Minden and Gardnerville.  For those who would like to get their own creative juices flowing, there are also art classes available in a number of mediums.
