Artist Information

Who can participate?


The event is open to artists living and working in Madera and Mariposa Counties. Unlike many similar shows, participation from artists who live outside the area is also allowed and encouraged!


It is our belief that diversity encourages creativity, and we welcome the involvement of creative people everywhere. The show is open to artists world-wide, providing they have access to a suitable viewing location in the region encompassed by Sierra Art Trails.  


Our planning committee will work with artists who are unsure where they would like to exhibit, whether they live in the area or live and work in another city, state, or country.  


Local businesses, artists who have studios in the area, and Art Trails supporters offer to share their show sites every year.

Submissions will be accepted from fine artists and artisans working in all media including but not limited to; painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, photography, printmaking, mixed media, papermaking, woodcarving, digital art, jewelry, and art glass.   


The focus of the event is on showcasing original works by working artists.  Mass produced crafts, gift items, etc. will not be accepted.
