The East Fork Gallery artists are having their annual spring reception and open house noon-4 p.m. April 6

The annual reception features a show change with all the artists represented in the gallery displaying their paintings, photography, pottery, hand painted porcelain, fused glass, jewelry, sculpture, and more.

There will also be a members’ art raffle where each of the 10 members has contributed a unique piece of art that can be won.

Raffle ticket purchasers select the art they want to win and put tickets in the boxes of their choice. Tickets are $1 each, six for $5, or an “arm’s length” for $20.

The artists encourage the community to “come in now, come in often and buy tickets for your favorite original artwork.”

The drawings will be held at 4 p.m. April 6 and you do not have to be present to win.

“Enjoy some food, wine, and great local art by 50 local artists,” gallery members said. “You just might be the winner of a local masterpiece.”

There are many gift items and original cards available as well.

A featured and sought after Easter tradition in the gallery are hand-painted wooden eggs, each individually created by Elfriede Short.

She has offered these to the public since 1986.

The longest established cooperative art gallery in the Valley, East Fork Gallery, is located in The Record-Courier Center, 1503 Highway 395, Suite “K” in Gardnerville.

Additional parking is available behind the building.
