Yosemite Renaissance is a non-profit art organization founded in 1985 to encourage artists to create diverse interpretations of Yosemite National Park and the surrounding Sierra Nevada region. The organization seeks to inspire a new generation of people to understand, preserve and protect our wild lands and natural places.

The Yosemite Renaissance Exhibition is an annual exhibit that offers an opportunity for artists inspired by nature and the American wilderness to display and promote their art. The exhibit opens at the historic Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery in the heart of Yosemite Valley, then travels to other art centers across California.

Philosophy and Approach

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 natural resources. 

Subject matter must be related to the landscape, environment, wildlife and people of Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Nevada region. Both representational and non-representational submissions are allowed. We encourage artist who apply to celebrate the beauty and wonder of nature through art, but also to consider and explore environmental issues, ecology, biology, forestry, current events, political, spiritual and cultural themes.

Contributing artists should be aware of the geographic range of the show. While the nexus of the exhibit is Yosemite, the scope of the show also includes Sequoia National Park, Sierra National Forest, Ansel Adams Wilderness, Mono Lake, Bodie, the White Mountains, and more. The high Sierra, east side and west side foothills and canyons from Lake Tahoe to Tehachapi are all included! The area is huge, consisting of thousands of acres of rugged peaks, deep valleys, forests, lakes and streams.  If your work is inspired by these places, it will be considered.

Mastery of traditional media, technical expertise, style and personal vision are important factors in the selection process.

One of the goals of Yosemite Renaissance is to encourage innovation. Jurors will consider the use of new tools, technologies, materials and techniques.


$5,000 in cash awards will be announced at the opening reception at the Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery.

A small box of Crayola crayons, an American child's first art related possession, contained eight glorious wax colors.  Three of them RED, YELLOW, and BLUE gave  these kids the ability to create all the colors of the rainbow.  In addition, however. so many first art projects focused on these crayons as they were packaged - strong primary color artistic elements.

This call is about images in which one of these colors stands out as a critical element of your photographic composition.  You will determine which of the three colors RED, YELLOW or BLUE represents each image you submit.  They can be black and white photographs with a single point of color, red, yellow or blue monochromes, or any image where red, yellow or blue stands out as a focal part of the photograph. Is the blue sky the most important part of your image, a red umbrella or maybe a big yellow flower? Have you modified a print to be all shades of red?  This is a theme to have fun with.
