In preparation for the Sierra Art Trails "Valley View Yosemite Trails, Currents and Visions," exhibit, the submission deadline for any artist wishing to participate is March 10.
This is a juried exhibit focusing on Yosemite National Park, and in particular Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias, the regions designated as protected by the Yosemite Land Grant in 1864.
The show will feature works that address the history, present state, and possibly future of Yosemite National Park. Works will address historical subjects, current issues, and predictions or speculations on the future of the park, including folklore or mythology.
The exhibit will run from April 5 to May 4 at Oakhurst's Stellar Gallery, 40982 Highway 41.
A gala reception will be held 4-8 p.m., Saturday, April 12, at the gallery.
Yosemite's magnificent waterfalls, magnificent granite walls, and redwood forests have earned the park a reputation as one of the most spectacular natural areas on earth. Yosemite draws visitors from all over the world, and has inspired artists, writers, and the public for nearly two centuries.
"Ultimately it is our goal that the exhibit will shine a light on what Yosemite means to us, both as individuals and as a culture," Sierra Art Trails President John Bock said.
