SIERRA ART TRAILS 2019 - Yosemite Foothills Open Studio Tour - Friday, Saturday & Sunday, October 4-6, 

Welcome to Sierra Art Trails 2019, our 17th annual Yosemite Foothills Open Studio Tour. The exhibit is the largest art event in our area, showcasing a wide range of fine art and fine craft in communities throughout Eastern Madera and Mariposa Counties.

The region encompassed by the show includes Oakhurst, Coarsegold, North Fork, Yosemite Lakes Park , and communities along Highway 49 from Ahwahnee to Mariposa. The show takes place in artist’s studios, homes, art galleries, wineries, and other businesses throughout the area.

Sierra Art Trails is open to visual artists and artisans working in all media including but not limited to; painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, photography, printmaking, mixed media, papermaking, woodcarving, digital art, jewelry, textile arts, and art glass.  Mass produced crafts, gift items, etc. will not be accepted.

Sierra Art Trails is open to both local artists and artists from outside the area.  Artists with studios located in Eastern Madera and Mariposa Counties are encouraged to show in their home studios, and to share their show sites with others.

The planning committee will work with artists who do not have access to a suitable show site to help them find a location to show their work.  First consideration is given to artists living within the area, but the show is open to any artist interested in participating in the event, regardless of where they live.

Artists must be Present to Participate - Artists must be present at their sites both Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Friday is an optional day for participating artists. 

Since our first exhibit in 2003, Sierra Art Trails has built a dedicated audience excited to attend year after year. In addition to visiting with the artists and purchasing works directly from the people who create them, visitors are encouraged to explore our communities, patronize our hotels and restaurants, and learn more about our area.

As an artist, there are many reasons to consider applying for the show. Participating artists are featured in the tour catalog, included in a month-long Preview Exhibit, and benefit from an extensive advertising campaign.  While successful sales are important, the promotional exposure alone is well worth the cost of participation.  Networking opportunities, offers to participate in other exhibits, and post show sales often result from participation in Sierra Art Trails.

Artists interested in applying can view the complete prospectus, and find general information on our website at www.sierraarttrails.org

Half a century after the advent of color film, black and white & monochromatic photography continues to capture our collective imagination. Utilizing tone, contrast, texture and shape, monochromatic photography strips its subject to only the most essential visual elements; revealing a sense of soul, substance and meaning – separate from the shifting sentiments, symbolism and cultural associations of color imagery.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that demonstrate the fundamental qualities that make black and white & monochromatic photography an enduring, contemporary art form. All subjects, genres, capture types, black & white and monochromatic, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

DUSK to DAWN:

Pick up a camera for the first time and odds are the images taken will be in full daylight.  Learn about sun glare, flat light, shadow.....  But then your world expands as you explore opportunities from the rest of the 24-hour day from DUSK to DAWN. That time, from that bewitching hour when it isn't quite dark, through the night, to the early blue semi brightness that envelops your the world in morning, provides huge opportunity for spectacular images.Capture the softness of light at dawn and at dusk. Take long exposures of the moon and stars in the sky.  Create night photos of lit office buildings, headlights in motion, streets, houses etc. and find a wonderful subject where a black night sky provides a dramatic background. First and last peeks of sunlight can provide some amazing opportunities as well.

SHOW DESCRIPTION - “Figurative Expressions”-  Figurative art grapples with a notoriously difficult subject - the human figure. Throughout art history and across all cultures, this has remained a subject to which artists have been continually drawn: To portray the human subject in a way that exposes us to the soul of the person whether as a child, adult or aged person, and which allows us to connect with our own humanity.

JUDGESarma Karsiere is classically trained and a native of Riga, Latvia.  She specializes in figurative artwork through her drawings, paintings and digital art.  Sarma has taught at Cosumnes River College, Sacramento City College and the Crocker Art Museum. A quote from the newspaper, The Mountain Democrat,  follows: 

"She is an internationally recognized artist from Riga, Latvia. In her art she explores the possibilities found in the cross-pollination of traditional and digital media. Her artistic expressions come in the form of drawings, paintings and digital art.Karsiere has been teaching studio art for more than 15 years and is currently an adjunct faculty member with the Los Rios Community College District.“My work interweaves realism and abstraction and is guided by inner journeys evident in compositions of seemingly unrelated, even contradictory bits of reality, archetypes, signs and symbols. These, brought together, form a manifest stream of unconscious, a dreamlike state of revelation or a moment of deep philosophical thought, at times carrying meaning beyond the verbally definable,” said Karsiere."

CATEGORIES- all mediums are accepted.

AWARDS - RIBBONS AND MONETARY AWARDS: 

Best of Show- $100; 1st Place - $75; 2nd Place - $50; People's Choice – ribbon

Women by Women

  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $6.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

The history of photography has a long tradition of representing women as subjects but has less to say about women as artists. Today, the roles of women in photography are both behind the camera and in front of it. Who understands women better than women? The female perspective offers an important view of the many facets of womanhood and womens’ role in society. This exhibition seeks women photographers who explore and celebrate the myriad ways that they render female-identifying subjects. 

Our juror for Women by Women is Kat Kiernan, the Editor-in-Chief of the photography magazine Don’t Take Pictures, as well as the Director of Panopticon Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Beauty of Nature

The falling of snowflakes coming down
Making a blanket of white on the ground.
Autumn with red and gold-leaves,
Falling to the ground, in a cool breeze.
The rising of the sun of crimson,
A buzzing of the Bees,
As they go on their mission.
A cool-breeze blowing in the trees.
The beautiful- flowers of red, yellow, and blue.
The sparkling of grass, with morning-dew.
The sea is beautiful, with Blue-sky above.
The flying of sea-gulls and of doves.
The birds singing up in the trees,
As a gentle-wind blows the green-leaves.
Beautiful-butterflies going their way.
The beauty of nature, really make my day!

By Winifred Bullard

SECONDARY COLORS:  Orange, Purple, Green

Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow.

Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises

A garden of purple is always in bloom!

NYC4PA "Primary Colors" calls for entry have been some of our favorite contests. Though red, yellow and blue are, in fact, primary colors but they not the not the only important hues out there for the color photographer. 

SECONDARY COLORS:  ORANGE, GREEN, and PURPLE are as impactful and can be the foundation for equally compelling imagery.  Images in which one of these colors stands out as a critical element are what we are looking for. The image can be a black and white with a single point of color, a Green, Orange or Purple monochrome, or any image where a SECONDARY COLOR stands out as a focal point. The possibilities in nature alone are endless with green leaves and lawns, orange bursts of autumn color and purple flowers as well as magical purple hazes that can set over late afternoon scenes.  Clothing, pumpkins, traffic lights, automobiles, the list goes on and on. 

Once again we invite your best and most creative.

NOTEFor each image you will select one of the categories ORANGE, PURPLE or GREEN.

Awards:  There will be one Best of Show for the Adult Division and one Best of Show for the Youth Division.  Each shall be awarded $250.  There will also be two Juror’s Awards (no monetary award).  All awards are made based upon consideration of the actual exhibited prints on the wall.
