Celebrating Gateway Expressions at The Ansel Adams Gallery

Last week, our gallery partnered with Yosemite National Park and the Yosemite Conservancy to host the 9th Annual Gateway Expressions Student Art and Photography Contest! This contest celebrates the artistic creativity of local youth living in Yosemite’s gateway communities.

Each year in Yosemite this contest is held, and is open to all students in grades TK-12 who live in gateway community districts including Bass Lake, Groveland, Chawanakee, Mammoth, Bishop, Mariposa, Oakhurst, and Sonora, California.

Our gallery had the pleasure of exhibiting selected student artwork and photography for this special event, and participating in an awards ceremony to honor student artists.

Thanks to all of you who came out to support this important program!

We hope you enjoy this collection of moments from this year’s celebration:
