“Our members are award winning artists in juried competitions. Many have their work in corporations and International collections. A number have been featured in National art magazines,” said Merylyn Whited of the Timberline Gallery.

Events of all kinds help to celebrate the occasion of the Yosemite Grant 150th Anniversary both inside Yosemite and in the surrounding gateway communities. Gallery Yosemite is a new venue for creative artists to express their love for Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada.
