“We are very excited to host the 32nd annual Yosemite Renaissance art exhibit at Gallery 5. It is a great honor to present this inspirational art exhibit celebrating Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada wilderness we know and love.” - Jon Bock, Director, Yosemite Renaissance
"I have no trouble describing how I work – I paint on a handmade Japanese paper called kyoseishi and then embellish the piece with hand embroidery. The “why” is more complicated but also more interesting to read about, as it speaks to why one creates art at all." - Mary Beth Schwartzenberger
"The intent of my art is simple – to share the beauty I see in nature with others. I often visit national and state parks, family farms, some of the 10,000 lakes here in Minnesota, and even go on Sunday drives in the country to be inspired by the beauty of animals and nature. A camera is always within my reach during any trip I take." - Theresa Grams
“Visual artists, writers and musicians have been inspired by our area for centuries. We want to encourage contemporary artists to share new interpretations of the region, explore the issues we face, and celebrate our environment through art." - Jon Bock
Yosemite Renaissance provides a contemporary perspective on the century-old artistic traditions of depicting the landscape, issues and ideas surrounding Yosemite National Park.
