Main Street Gardnerville is proud to present “Carson Valley Fall Colors” photos in the latest Sidewalk Gallery display featuring photos from residents of the Carson Valley. This project is being sponsored in part by A.B.E. Printing, which helped make this latest display possible.
A small committee of volunteers chose 16 photos out of about 90 entries. Entries from the following are featured in the current display: Merry Muller, Brad Cockman, Allan York, Colleen Hendrickson, Gerry Myers, Malinda Humphrey, Margaret Pross and Priscilla Forster.

To purchase prints from the gallery, please contact Main Street Gardnerville at 782-8027. They will then put you in contact with the photographer to make arrangements.
The next great opportunity for hobbyists, students, professionals and everyday smart phone users is to capture “Winter Wonderland” aspects of “Our Town” and the Carson Valley during the winter months and to have them on display for all to enjoy. Submissions can be from this year or previous years.
Please submit small, digital versions of all entries via email to or drop off the photo on a disk to 1407 Hwy 395 in Gardnerville.
If selected, the photographer will need to provide the photo in 3 MB or larger format.
Deadline for submission is December 6th.

Over the past two years, the “Sidewalk Gallery” has featured the great artwork of DHS Photography Students, members of the Carson Valley Art Association, and Main Street Volunteers. Each display has been mounted by volunteers on the boarded up windows of the old, vacant building at the corner of Eddy Street and Hwy 395 in Gardnerville in the hopes of giving an old, vacant building 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.
