California National Parks: Stories of Water

– Exhibition at the Wildling Museum

The Wildling Museum of Art and Nature presents its third juried exhibition showcasing California’s nine national parks this fall. California National Parks: Stories of Water features 37 artists and 39 selected artworks from more than 240 submissions. These artists are competing for $4,000 in awards, and the exhibition is on view September 23, 2023 – February 19, 2024.

The public is invited to an opening reception and awards ceremony at the Wildling, Sunday, September 24, 2023, 3 – 5 p.m.

The exhibition explores various impacts of water – or its lack – in California’s national parks. The artists used a wide range of media and techniques, from acrylic, oil, and watercolor paintings, to photography, mixed media, and textile art.

The Wildling Museum is grateful to juror Nathan Vonk, owner of Sullivan Goss – An American Gallery, located in Santa Barbara, for judging the impressive number of entries.
