The Main Street Gardnerville “Sidewalk Gallery” continues to draw attention with various photo displays.

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. The current display features photos from residents in the Carson Valley.

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 has been extended to Dec. 9. There are several great Christmas events happening this week in the Carson Valley that will provide some great photo opportunities for contributors.

This project is being sponsored in part by A.B.E. Printing, which helped make this latest display possible.

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.
