Paula Lochridge, Main Street Gardnerville
Main Street Gardnerville has updated its “Sidewalk Gallery” with photography art work from several Douglas High School students.
The photos have been mounted by volunteers on the boarded up windows of the old, vacant building at the corner of Eddy Street and Highway 395 in Gardnerville.
A special reception will be held during the September Thirsty Third Thursday Wine Walk, Sept. 19, when the students will be on hand to talk about their work and possibly sell their pictures.
Photography was provided by the following students from K.C. Brennan’s photography classes: Olivia Abbott, Taylor Arthur, Ashley Benally, Morgan Crimm, Daija Curey, Shelby Ence, Kelsey Endter, Kelsey Fraser, Alexandra Hamblin, Savannah Lowther, Cecilia Morton, Alyssa Rickard, Carmen Shaw, Lisa Swab and Colton Witt.
The hopes of this project are two-fold, to showcase the exceptional talent of our local students and to provide a vacant building with a purpose.
Main Street Gardnerville is a community based self-help program with various members of the community volunteering to revitalize the downtown. Even though Main Street Gardnerville focuses strictly on the downtown district, the program benefits the entire community and surrounding areas.
