Madera County Arts Council is proud to sponsor a juried photography exhibition “A Different Look at Yosemite’s Treasures.”

The exhibition will take place May 13, 2014 (Tuesday) through May 27, 2014 (Tuesday), with a reception to be held Saturday, May 17, 2014, 4-7 pm.

Entries will be accepted from any California resident (residents under 18 years of age require parental approval). Entrants will be asked to attest that they created the image and that it has NEVER been publicly exhibited. Signed releases will be required for any submissions including recognizable individuals.

Madera County Arts Council recognizes that Yosemite National Park has been a mystical and visual inspiration for generations of visitors and residents. In an 1890 magazine article, John Muir wrote beautifully about “The Treasures of the Yosemite.” Photography is one of the many ways artists and tourists alike have recorded and shared Yosemite. This themed photography show will encourage local residents and park visitors to look closer at all the wonders of Yosemite – plant, animal, geological, hydrology, architectural, and share their personal vision of Yosemite through photos and a short narrative explanation that includes specifics of image location, equipment, technique (if applicable) and personal meaning/inspiration of the image.
