Lone Tree Gallery hosts touring exhibit

Twenty-five years ago Nevada artist Lady Jill Mueller toured her exhibit Great Basin National Park: Impressions from the Soul, An Artist View.

Friday marks the opening of her second touring exhibit, Great Basin National Park: Revisited at Lone Tree Gallery in Minden.

The Friday evening reception coincides with the gallery’s 28th anniversary, which will include the gallery’s artists in attendance with new works.

The reception is 4-8 p.m. at the gallery at 1598 Esmeralda Ave.

“When I first moved to Nevada in 1986, I saw the state had just received its first and only National Park. I vowed to do an exhibit of paintings and etchings to tour around the state, showing the people of Nevada their own crown jewel,” said Mueller. “In revisiting the park this year, I was delighted to not only be back but to see it has increased in popularity. Twenty five years of changes in my painting pallet is shown in the current exhibit.”

Mueller, in her 36th year as a professional artist, has displayed her work at Lone Tree Gallery since she moved to Nevada. Besides the Great Basin exhibit and Mueller’s work, the gallery offers a diverse collection of originals, prints, sculpture, furnishings, gifts and more.

The gallery features landscape, western, native American and wildlife subjects by the regions finest established and emerging artists.

Gallery hours are 10a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, Saturday 10 to 5 p.m. For more information, contact Barry Jobe at 782-2522, or

Cash mob at Especially For You

Main Street Gardnerville’s next cash mob is Oct. 5 at Especially For You, 1218 Eddy Street.

Cash mobbers are asked to show up at the business anytime during regular 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. business hours committed to spending $10-$20.

Cash mobs are part of a movement aimed at supporting local businesses and rebuilding communities.

“Cash mobbing is an increasingly popular way to enable community members to make a difference for locally owned businesses,” Main Street officials said.

Locals are asked to join the Facebook group, Main Street Gardnerville Cash Mob, then invite their friends to do the same, sharing the idea with their friends.

Especially for You has been in business 17 years, and is located in the heart of Carson Valley.

It has the latest trends in fashion and accessories, and brands such as Brighton, Tribal, French Dressing (FDJ) and many, many more.

They will be offering some cash mob specials on clothing and jewelry.

“According to the American Independent Business Alliance, when a consumer spends $100 in a locally owned business, $45 of it stays in the community,” said Main Street. “When that same $100 is spent in a national chain store, only $13 stays local. A cash mob is just one way that a shopper can have a huge impact on our local economy.”

A cash mob business is selected via random drawing of Main Street Gardnerville Business Members.
