February 2nd through April 25th, 2020
Stephen Ingram has been photographing nature subjects for over 30 years, and has lived in the Eastern Sierra since 1994. He photographs primarily landscapes and botanical subjects, but over the past ten years has focused more on abstracts and clouds. He has also shifted to having his images printed only on metal or canvas, surfaces that can accentuate contrast and texture in certain subjects. Stephen’s photos have been published in numerous books, magazines, calendars, and field guides, and have also been available as fine art prints and note cards. Stephen is the author and photographer of Cacti, Agaves, and Yuccas of California and Nevada (Cachuma Press, 2008), and photographer of Rock Creek Wildflowers (CNPS, 2015). You can see more of his work at ingramphoto.com
“This exhibit showcases the inspiring beauty of our local mountains and the amazing and ethereal cloud formations we witness in the Eastern Sierra. Clouds are both literally and figuratively one of nature’s highest forms of abstract art.”
“Here on the lee side of the Sierra Nevada, we are very fortunate to live in a cloudspotter’s paradise, as well as a mountaineer’s paradise. Our local mountains are popular photographic subjects because of their grandeur and the seasonal changes they exhibit. Mountain landscapes are usually improved with the presence of interesting clouds and light, but clouds themselves can be ideal photographic subjects because of each form’s unique and changing characteristics, and because of the way clouds absorb and reflect light.”
Eastern Sierra Plein Air Artists
March 16th through July 11th, 2020
The Eastern Sierra Plein Air Artists are a group of enthusiastic artists of all mediums. Their main focus is to work on location one day a week as a means of friendship and support in a continuing desire to put on paper the splendor that surrounds them. En Plein Air is a French expression which means "in the open air" and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. MAC Gallery & Art Center is thrilled to host this talented group showing pieces completed outside in many of our most beautiful locations.

Mono Arts Council is committed to preventing the spread of COVID-19 while maintaining a fun and relaxed environment. The following precautions will be in place during our indoor classes for the foreseeable future.
All participants, instructors, and staff will be required to wear a mask for the duration of the class (creative and colorful masks are encouraged!). Classes will be limited to 12 participants to allow for socially distant seating. Participants will be given their own set of sanitized supplies and will be personally attended to if more supplies are needed. Each participant will have one glass of wine included with their class fee. Glassware will be cleaned and sanitized between each class and wine will be poured by our staff. We are looking forward to making art in a fun and safe environment and we welcome any questions or concerns regarding your safety.
