The 33rd Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition celebrates the work of Emeryville artists and includes paintings, sculpture, photographs, prints, textiles, ceramics, furniture, glass works and poetry. The sheer number and array of artists living or working in Emeryville illustrates the city's cultural vibrancy and provides an impressive creative pool that continues to create new and exciting works. The individual pieces demonstrate the diversity of Emeryville artists and show their engagement with a host of aesthetic, political, and social concerns.
The collection of artwork is selected by a panel of Bay Area arts professionals through studio visits along with digitally submitted works. Kathleen Hanna has served as curator and juror for the last seven years. The other 2019 jurors are George Lawson, director/owner of George Lawson Gallery, Mill Valley, and Elizabeth Shypertt, co-founder of Velvet da Vinci Gallery in San Francisco.
Contributing artists include conceptual artist Packard Jennings, painters M. Louise Stanley, Frank Cole, Teresa Kalnoskas, and Jayson Manzano, sculptors Mari Andrews, Mark Galt, Ken Kalman and metalsmith Curtis H. Arima, ceramic artists Jered Nelson, Cuong Ta, and Jeff Margolin, printmakers Linda Lee Boyd, Kazuko Watanabe, and Juliette Chone, photographers Ronald Davis, Jeannie O'Conner, and Susan Scott, and textile artist Susan T. Avila. Works on exhibit are for sale.
Emeryville is designated by the California Arts Council as one of only 14 cities across the state that serve as premier Cultural Districts, highlighting thriving cultural diversity and unique artistic identities. The Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition serves as a celebration of the city's thriving collective creativity and an invitation for community members and visitors to experience a sampling of artwork created by Emeryville artists.
