Local water color artist Judy Berland’s “Virginia Street Bridge” limited edition giclee is now available exclusively at The Frame Shop at Lakeside. Constructed in 1905 in the heart of downtown Reno, the Virginia Street Bridge became an icon of Reno’s rich and storied past.   Legend has it that new divorcees walked down the Washoe County Courthouse steps, decree in hand, approached the railing of the Virginia Street Bridge and cast their wedding rings into the Truckee River.


The bridge was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1980.  After more than a century of use, the bridge was demolished in 2015.  These beautiful giclees make wonderful gifts or souvenirs of your visit to Reno, available exclusively at The Frame Shop at Lakeside, matted or framed. We invite you to stop by and own a piece of Reno’s iconic history.


Whether you are a local or a visitor, we’re sure you’ll enjoy visiting our gallery.  Treat yourself or a friend and feel good about supporting a local business and your local art community!

The Frame Shop gallery offers an eclectic selection of art for sale in its gallery.  Originally known primarily for its western art, including signed and numbered limited editions by well-known artists such as J. F. Policky, Bev Doolittle, Jack Terry and David Stocklein, more recently the gallery is home to more and more local and regional artists.  While western art will always be represented, The Frame Shop gallery is committed to increasing its focus on local art.  Our current offerings include limited and open editions by Elizabeth Carmel, Linda Dufurrena, Roy Powers, Lady Jill Mueller, Chris Talbot, Barb Kallestad, Dave Guisti, Kazue Kurebayashi and more. We even have two oversize original performance paintings of Jimi Hendrix and Ray Charles by world-renowned Rock & Roll Hall of Famer David Garibaldi.

For our local history buffs, we have a collection of black and white vintage Reno photographic prints dating from the 1930’s and 1940’s, as well as several authentic historic Nevada maps dating from the 1800’s and 1900’s. Our selection varies, so feel free to stop by often.

New to our gallery, "Tiny Planets" by local photographic artist Vincent Cascio.  In his own words:


"Tiny Planets came to life when I discovered I had all the right combination of images, lenses and software.  Each planet I create takes 28 images to complete.  I know there are many other ways and styles, these are in the style I enjoy most."


Available at The Frame Shop at Lakeside matted or framed, 14" x 14". Other images available, and other sizes available by special order.

Don Dondero (1920 – 2003)

For nearly fifty years, Don Dondero was celebrated as one of Reno’s most notable and accomplished publicity photographers. As northern Nevada’s primary Associated Press photographer, his work was also distributed widely round the world. From capturing civic celebrations and commercial commissions, to significant regional events and Reno’s illustrious celebrity nightlife, Dondero documented a bygone era, securing his legacy as one of northern Nevada’s most prolific and important photographers.  

Upon Dondero’s passing in 2003, he left a treasure trove of iconic images, a selection of which are now available for sale as high-quality digital archive pigment prints. Pictured here is a small sampling of the many available images. 


Available at The Frame Shop at Lakeside. Please contact us for special order details.
