The Carson Valley Art Gallery Association is pleased to announce the continuation of the Second Saturday Art Trail event for the month of October. In this event, seven art galleries of the Carson Valley feature special demonstrations, art shows and refreshments for visitors. It has met with great success over the last few months.

New for the art galleries will be the Art Trail brochure in which all the galleries are listed with descriptions of the type of work to be found, addresses and phone numbers for the galleries, and a map. Brochures can be found at many tourist attractions and resorts throughout Reno, Lake Tahoe, Carson City and Carson Valley, or at any participating gallery.

The October schedule includes ready-made scarecrows and other Halloween items for sale all day at East Fork Gallery and a reception for quilt artist Rose Hughes from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Artisans International Gallery. There will be a reception for Reno oil painter Nancy Giannini from 1 to 4 p.m. at Artistic Viewpoints Gallery and a chance to meet artist Greg Drinkwine and enjoy refreshments from noon to 5 p.m. at the Davis Gallery.

There will also be a new show and sale of fine art prints at Art!Rageous.
