March 5 – March 28, 2014
Reception: Friday, March 7th, 6 – 8pm
“Experience the Southern Sierra Nevada from the viewpoint of painters, poets, sculptors, photographers and storytellers.” Late last year, the Arts Alliance of Three Rivers produced an exceptional book highlighting the creations of artists and writers as they pay tribute to the extraordinary wonders of the Southern Sierra Nevada. Titled Sierra Wonders, the project resulted in an remarkable document of this special place we who live here in this Central California region call our backyard. Proceeds from sales of Sierra Wonders books benefit the Jonnum-Young Scholarship Fund, providing support to young people pursuing higher studies in the Arts.
Arts Visalia is proud to partner with the Arts Alliance of Three Rivers in producing this exhibition highlighting works by artists and writers involved in the Sierra Wonders publication. In doing so, we hope to shine a light on these talented individuals and as well as to generate local awareness of the project and the worthy cause of supporting young artists in their pursuit of careers in the Arts.
Sierra Wonders: Treasures in Our Backyard will be on display at Arts Visalia from March 5th through March 28th with an opening reception to be held on Friday, March 7th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Attendance is free and open to the public.
This exhibition has been made possible with generous support from the following:
