Sierra Art Trails taking applicants

This is the first year the Sierra Art Trails is using SmarterEntry for the online application process.

As an artist, there are many reasons to participate in the Sierra Art Trails. Artists are featured in the tour catalog, they benefit from an extensive advertising campaign, and are included in an exhibit at K-Jewel Gallery in Fresno in August, and the exhibit at Stellar Gallery in Oakhurst in September. Art sales in 2017 exceeded $120,000. The event has also produced networking opportunities, offers to participate in other exhibits, and post-show sales.

This year’s supporters include Valley PBS, Valley Public Radio, Visit Yosemite Madera County, K-Jewel Radio, Sierra Telephone, Fresno Philharmonic, the Madera and Mariposa Art Councils, and many other businesses, organizations and individuals.

The application is available at: https://client.smarterentry.com/SAT/ or visit the website at sierraarttrails.org.
