"Pathways" is a juried exhibit focused on the choices we make and the paths we take. This exhibit is intended to draw attention to "Pathways" both literally and conceptually. In addition to the countless roads and paths in the physical world, pathways are also found in nature, science, philosophy, spirituality and our personal lives.

The jury will consider subject, craftsmanship, aesthetics, innovation, creativity, and content during the jury process. It is not necessary that works focus on a specific issue, however the jury will consider the intent of the work in relation to the overall theme in the selection of works for the exhibit.

Sierra Art Trails is a California based non-profit arts organization dedicated to supporting artists and artisans, promoting art education, and benefiting our communities through cultural tourism.
