Thousands of Californians enjoy the beauty and wonder of national parks like Yosemite, just a few hours’ drive from Lodi. But artists look at the parks with a totally different eye.

Artistic views of Yosemite and other national parks across America have been captured in a new book called “Art of the National Parks.”

These paintings will be exhibited for three days only at the Knowlton Gallery in Lodi, to celebrate the book’s release.

Inspired by 19th century painters and photographers, Congress passed legislation preserving America’s spectacular natural resources for the enjoyment of all.

Today, artists continue to play a significant role in interpreting these iconic panoramas, intimate corners, and diverse wildlife within our National Parks.

In “Art of the National Parks,” by Fresco Fine Art Publications, 70 painters and sculptors offer distinctive visions of eight of the nation’s most beloved wild lands. More than 430 pages are filled with full color artworks in a large book format.

Featured artists who painted Yosemite Park are John Budicin, Jane Culp, Gil Dellinger, Moira Donohoe, Kim Lordier, Clark Mitchell, Penny Otwell, Joseph Paquet, Marc Pandone and Charles Waldman.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
