Yosemite Artists-in-Residence Exhibit

 

Yosemite Art Exhibit Features Diverse Works by Artists-in-Residence

A unique art exhibit opened in June 2009 at the Yosemite Museum Gallery. The exhibit featured work from seven professional artists, all part of the Artists-in-Residence program. The program, established over 20 years ago, is coordinated by Yosemite Renaissance. Professional artists are invited to live in the Yosemite for up to one month, allowing them to immerse themselves in the park, visiting the spectacular expanse that is Yosemite and capturing the hidden gems behind the traditional icons.

Included were paintings, prints, drawings, fabric art and sculptures by John Barnett, Jane Culp, Tom Killion, Bruce Klein, Hearne Pardee, Bonnie Peterson and Gina Werfel. This diverse exhibit continued through November 8, 2009. 

Yosemite Renaissance, a non-profit corporation, encourages diverse interpretations of the Yosemite and the environment of the Sierra Nevada.  Its goals are to bring together the works of serious contemporary artists that do not simply duplicate traditional representations; to establish a continuum with past generations of Yosemite artists; and to help re-establish visual art as a major interpretive medium of the landscape and a stimulus to the protection of the environment.
