Gardnerville artist Anne Armijo is showing artwork at the Copeland Cultural Art Center, 1572 Highway 395 in Minden, through Jan 31.
Her watercolor, acrylic and mixed-media paintings capture local scenes, birds and flowers from an unexpected viewpoint.
"It's a wonderful opportunity," Armijo said of the show. "I love nature, and I love Carson Valley. I enjoy the landscape and the skies are fabulous."
An artist reception is 5 to 7 p.m. Friday with light refreshments served.
Armijo serves on the Carson Valley Art Association board and shows locally with it as well.
In her mixed-media pieces, Armijo adds wire to a painting so it looks as if the viewer is looking through a fence or a screen. She also adds beadwork to her pieces.
She recently received an honorable mention from the Delicato's Fine Art show in Manteca, Calif., for her work "Marching Momentos," a landscape scene of Virginia City.
"I felt very honored," Armijo said. "My goal this year is to enter a lot more shows outside the area."
Armijo's hand-dyed silk scarves and eyeglass cases can be seen at East Fork Gallery, 1503 Highway 395 N. Suite K, in Gardnerville.
A percentage of nd all donations benefit the Carson Valley Arts Council.
John Humphrey is showing his wildlife and landscape photographs in the center gallery.
