Making Your Mark presents a rich array of works on paper, exploring the various methods and materials used in modern artistic practice. Showcasing 50 superb prints and drawings, we sample the breadth and beauty the Hechinger Collection, which has the unique theme of hand tools and hardware. Focusing on the creative process, the works represent some of the varied media and tools at an artist’s disposal. Making Your Mark’s celebration of the visual and conceptual aspects of drawing and printmaking educates and inspires in the best way, leaving viewers engaged, and rapt with curiosity.
Some of the most influential artists of the twentieth century are featured in the exhibition, including Jim Dine, Richard Estes, Walker Evans, Howard Finster, Ke Francis, Jacob Lawrence, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, and Wayne Thiebaud.
Making Your Mark: Prints and Drawings from the Hechinger Collection is organized and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.

Yosemite Renaissance 36
August 11 - October 3, 2021
Yosemite Renaissance was founded in 1984 by the Yosemite Art Guild, a consortium of local Yosemite landscape artists. Their mission... “to motivate artists to develop diverse interpretations of Yosemite and its varied landscapes.” Since then, more than 4,600 artists have participated in Yosemite Renaissance programs, setting the bar for creative excellence and inspiration in the Yosemite area. Artists from around the country have been showcased in Yosemite Renaissance’s annual exhibit, featuring artwork depicting Yosemite and the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains. The Carnegie Arts Center has hosted the traveling exhibition for most of its long history, and we are proud to do so again.
