Yosemite Renaissance XXVI

My piece Mariposa Grove has been accepted for Yosemite Renaissance XXVI at the Yosemite Gallery Museum to open on February 25, 2011.  The opening reception is 5:30 to 7:30PM.

Mariposa Grove is 36" x 17" and is a digital print taken in the Grove in 2008 on an early morning hike.  My husband and I arrived at around 7AM and and spent 3 hours hiking the grove as I took an obscene amount of pictures.  The image is altered in Photoshop and printed on a piece of my hand made amate bark paper along with a piece of copper mesh.  The prints are attached together on a piece of 1/4" hardware cloth with waxed linen thread.




"Yosemite Renaissance is an annual competition/exhibition which is 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; 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.  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."   From the Yosemite Renaissance Prospectus
