I Am the Dream for Myself and Photos from the Field

The Arts Council presents two concurrent photography exhibitions at the Treetop Gallery this winter: PHOTOS FROM THE FIELD, Images from F/STOP and I AM THE DREAM FOR MYSELF, Images by Refugee and Immigrant Youth. The opening reception is on December 9, from 4-6pm, 5009 Highway 140, Mariposa, and the exhibition runs from December 9, 2016 to April 9, 2017.

PHOTOS FROM THE FIELD features artwork created in the Arts Council’s F/STOP, a free lifespan learning program for Mariposa residents 55 years of age or older. F/STOP classes focus on the artistic elements of photography and are designed to promote creativity and self-expression.

Generous support for F/STOP comes from the California Arts Council’s Local Impact program.

I AM THE DREAM FOR MYSELF shares the stories of refugee and immigrant youth through images from the AjA Project’s permanent collection. The AjA Project is a nonprofit organization providing photography-based programming to transform the lives of youth and communities. AjA is an acronym for the phrase, “Autosuficiencia Juntada con Apoyo” which translates to, supporting self-sufficiency.

Following this reception, please join us for a fundraising dinner, generously hosted by Yosemite Bug Hostel’s June Bug Cafe who will donate a portion of the night’s proceeds to support our Summer Art Camp. Yosemite Bug Hostel’s June Bug Cafe: 6979 CA-140, Midpines
