Story and art provided by Carnegie Art Center.
True to tradition, the Carnegie Arts Center will present Yosemite Renaissance 34 from now through October 6, 2019.
Artists from all over the United States submitted entries of varying mediums, including paintings, prints, textiles, mixed media, photographs and three-dimensional works. On display will be 61 works by 60 artists. All works interpret the majesty of Yosemite National Park and the Sierra region.
The Yosemite Renaissance program celebrates its 34th consecutive exhibition this year. The exhibit opened at the Yosemite Museum Gallery in February before traveling to the Kings Art Center in Hanford in June.
It cultivates diverse contemporary expressions of Yosemite and the Sierra to maintain an unbroken continuum between the Yosemite artists of the past and those working today.
The arts have played an important role in the creation of state and national parks. Past and present artists reveal deeper truths about the American landscape, communicate the value of the wilderness as a national treasure, and, most importantly, serve as a force to preserve and protect it.
Local and regional artists represented in this year’s traveling exhibition include Jared Barbick, Susan Bolen, Kanwarjit Singh Boparai, Diane Breuer, Jennifer Fosgate, Franka Gabler, David Hoffman, Kirk Keeler, Kristin Kessey, Kerik Kouklis, Gretchen Lee, Kathy Marks, Katy McCulloch, Denise Oyama Miller, Sandra Lee Scott, Lisa Van De Water, Monique Wales, Marilyn Wear, and Claudia Welsh.
