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!

Expressions with Pastels

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.


​​“My response to nature is always about color, fluidity and the transcendency of organic shapes.  Rather than depicting realism, I react to nature by choosing unexpected color with a specific intent to create an emotional feeling in my work and oftentimes, purposefully distort traditional botanical shapes.  The inherent meditative qualities of flora are catalysts for my work.”

Patti Christensen Woodard is a lifelong artist, Nevadan, and graduate from the University of Nevada, Reno.  Her paintings take us on a visual journey of floral impressions and semi-abstracted interpretations of organic forms in an expressive, decorative style.  Veiled layers of color, visual strokes, and texture are distinctive hallmarks of her work. 

A Signature Member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast, Sierra Pastel Society, Patti is the recipient of numerous awards. Her work is collected privately and with the Nevada Historical Society.

Stop by The Frame Shop at Lakeside and experience Patti’s exquisite floral pastels up close and personal through September.  See more of her work at

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.

Virginia Street Bridge, Judy Berland
