Galleries host weekend of events

The Carson Valley Art Gallery Association continues with its Second Saturday events in November. The CVAGA was formed by the seven galleries in Carson Valley to promote visual arts in the area. Each gallery holds special events on the second Saturday of every month - from artists' demonstrations, music and food to workshops and special art shows. A gallery brochure and map is available at all seven of the Carson Valley Galleries.

The events scheduled for November are:

n Peruvian Music and Artwork is scheduled at Artisans International, 1653 Lucerne St., Minden. Musicians will be playing from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and Peruvian artwork will be 10 percent off all day. Art includes Aztec-inspired, hand loomed wool tapestries, hand-quilted arpilleras and semi-precious jewelry set in Peruvian silver.

n Ornament painting with Elfriede Short demonstrating will be at East Fork Gallery, 1503 Highway 395, Gardnerville. Short originally painted solely in oils, but has since expanded her talents to watercolors, acrylics and pastels.
