More than 30 local artists are showcasing their work during the Carson Valley Day festivities at the CVIC Hall.

Sheila Clement of the Carson Valley Art Association said the association has been hosting an art show during Carson Valley Days for nearly 50 years.

“We wanted to make it part of the festivities and take part in local celebrations,” she said. “It’s a nice attraction and people get to mingle with the artists.”

Clements said artwork in photography, dry and water media, oil and acrylics, sculptures and ceramics will be displayed at the art show.

“We have a lot of local artist and a lot of talent,” she said.

For Minden artist Kaleigh Surber, one of the artists who will be featured at the show, it all started when her uncle gave her a watercolor kit when she was 11.

“I was always interested in the arts as a kid,” said Surber. “It was after my uncle gave me the watercolors that I became really interested and started becoming more and more interested throughout school.”

Since then the artist has been exhibited in various venues, including the Canessa Park Gallery in San Francisco, Gallery II on Main in Grass Valley, and the Broad Street Gallery in Nevada City.

The show opens to the public 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. today, with an artist’s reception at 6 p.m. Show hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

The Carson Valley Art Association meets at 1 p.m. the fourth Friday of the month at the United Methodist Church in Gardnerville. Everyone is welcome.
