Compete Yosemite Renaissance 37

Yosemite Renaissance Oakhurst, California, United States

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: December 31, 2021 – If you are an artist inspired by Yosemite and the California Sierra Nevada, this is a fabulous opportunity to share your vision!

The exhibit showcases works related to Yosemite National Park and the California Sierra Nevada region. For over 150 years, artists have played an important role in the establishment of our state and national parks, inspiring people to visit iconic natural sites, and to protect our parks, wild lands and natural resources. Yosemite Renaissance is dedicated to this ideal.

We encourage artists to celebrate the beauty and wonder of nature, and to explore environmental issues, ecology, history, current events, spiritual and cultural themes. We also encourage innovation, the use of new media, and new applications of traditional styles and techniques.

The exhibit is open to visual artists and artisans working in all media including but not limited to: oil & acrylic painting, watercolor, pastel, mixed media, printmaking, photography, digital art, drawing, fiber art, glass, woodworking, jewelry, ceramics, and sculpture. No film, video, interactive media or performance. Original works only. Limited edition prints and other multiples (photographs and digital/computer art) are allowed. No reproductions. Submitted works must be created in the last 5 years.

The 36th annual exhibit will be on display at Yosemite Gateway Art Center in Oakhurst from March 19th through May 15th, ten will travel on to Kings Art Center in Hanford, Carnegie Arts Center in Tulock, and the Yosemite Museum Gallery in the heart of Yosemite National Park.

$4000 in cash awards will be presented at the Yosemite Museum reception in February 2022.

$25 per first entry, $15 per additional entry. Maximum of 8 entries.


Jury results will be announced via email in January 2022, and will be posted on our website.

All works submitted must be available for sale. Yosemite Renaissance retains a 40% commission on sales. Once accepted for the exhibition, submitted works must be sold through Yosemite Renaissance, until the close of the exhibit.

Yosemite Renaissance is a 501c3 non-profit organization supported by Mariposa County, Stellar Gallery, Visit Yosemite Madera County, the National Park Service, and by individual donors.

Help us inspire the public to preserve and protect our parks and wild places through art!
