sandy follettautumn_leafYosemite Renaissance is celebrating its 29th year with an exhibit of 49 paintings, photographs, prints and sculptures by 45 artists. Drawn from more than 700 entries, this year’s exhibit includes a broad range of works from the representational to the abstract, all interpreting the majesty of Yosemite and the Sierra.

El Dorado County photographer Sandy Follett is one of the selected exhibitors. She is a member of the Placerville Arts Association and Viewpoint Gallery in Sacramento and volunteer at Yosemite.

The goals of Yosemite Renaissance are to bring together the works of 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 major role in the establishment of parks. It is the hope of Yosemite Renaissance that it can be just as important in future efforts to preserve, protect and expand parks.

Yosemite Renaissance XXIX will be on view at the Yosemite Museum Gallery from March 1 until May 11 from 10 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m.

The public is invited to the opening reception on Friday, Feb. 28 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Roxanne Robbin, professor of art history at California State University, Stanislaus and Ted Orland, photographer, photography workshop instructor and exhibiting artist (in many past Yosemite Renaissance exhibits) will be this year’s judges, awarding $4,000 in prizes to selected artists.

The award-winners will be announced at the opening reception on Friday, Feb. 28. This exhibit will travel to the Kings Art Center in Hanford during June and July, and the Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock during August and September.

The artists included in Yosemite Renaissance XXIX are: Rebecca Alex, Jody Sears Barbuta, Annie Barrett Cashner, Robin Black, Ann C. Buell, Jerilynn Bush, Richard Castillo, Jeffrey Clark, Marci Crestani, Stephen Curl, Starr Davis, Dean Detrick Jr., Dawna Ellis, Steve Emery, Sandy Follett, Denise Gilroy, Susan Lea Hackett, Juanita Hagberg, Tony Hertz, David Hoffman, Vaughn Hutchins, Susan J. Klein, Kathy Kleinsteiber, David Lee, Marek Matusz, G. Dan Mitchell, Jennifer Murray, William Neill, Glenn Nelson, Penny Otwell, Marc Pandone, Bonnie Peterson, Cozette Phillips, Nancy Robbins, George Robertson, Gayle Simpson, Jeff Skelly, Mike Tauber, Vicki Thomas, Keith Walklet, Sarah Watts, Victoria Weller, KathyAnne White, Melissa Woodburn and John Yerden.

Yosemite Renaissance is a non-profit organization for the arts of Yosemite, supported, in part, by funds and services from the Mariposa County Board of Supervisors, Delaware North Companies Parks and Resorts and the National Park Service.
