2015 "A Touch of Light"

won a second place cash award at the Yosemite Renaissance XXX art show held at the museum in Yosemite Valley. The reception was held February 28-May 10, 2015.

Yosemite Renaissance is an annual competition/exhibition which is intended to encourage diverse artistic interpretations of Yosemite. It 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 approximately 750 entries, 49 were selected for the exhibition.  yosemiterenaissance.org
