This original exhibition is the second installment of a
triennial series showcasing the talent of and diverse scope of
photographic work being done by photographers living within the
Museum's home state. Sixteen different artists, all of whom reside
in California, are featured in the exhibition and all of the
work has been created within the past five years.
The artists are both established and emerging and the variety of
work is as varied as the state of California
itself. Staking Claim: A California
Invitational embraces the digital medium but also
remains true to, and in some cases reinterprets, traditional
photographic processes. The result is a dynamic exhibition
that highlights the constant evolution of the art form.
