The many artists located throughout the foothills will be showcasing their work at the annual Sierra Art Trails next weekend.
“The Sierra Art Trails Yosemite Foothills Open Studio Tour is the largest and most anticipated annual arts event in the area,” said Jon Bock with Stellar Art Gallery and head of the committee that put the event together each year.
“The show gives art enthusiasts the chance to see fine art and fine crafts in the making, and to get a firsthand view of how artists live and work.”
Artwork from dozens of artists will be on display at galleries and other locations throughout Oakhurst and the surrounding area. The types of media used are also diverse, with everything from painting, sculpting, photography and more will all be shown.
“The artwork on display is truly stunning,” said Jarrod Lyman with the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau, one of the sponsors for the event and also a display site. “The beauty of Yosemite and the surrounding Sierra Nevada area in which we live serves as inspiration for the many artists who call the region home, and that shows in the amazing works of art they create.”
The event takes place Friday, Sept. 30 through Sunday, Oct. 2 from 10 am to 6 pm. The cost is $18 for two adults. The Sierra Art Trails catalog, which contains extensive information on each artist highlighted, also acts an admission ticket.
