Yosemite Renaissance is an annual juried competition/exhibition intended to encourage diverse artistic interpretations of Yosemite. Its goals are to bring together the works of serious contemporary artists that do not simply duplicate traditional representations. Historically, the arts have played a very important role in the establishment of our State and National Parks. It is our hope that they can be just as important in future efforts to preserve and protect that heritage.
Entries should be recent works on the landscape, environment, wildlife, and people of Yosemite or the Sierra Nevada. Both representational and non-representational submissions are accepted. Entries may be in any fine art medium including painting, photography, drawing, and printmaking, textile and sculpture.
Entries in the form of digital files are due by November 15, 2008. The entry fee is $15 per entry. There is no limit to the number of entries an artist may submit. Up to 45 pieces may be selected for the exhibition.
