Artists-in-Residence

What better way to appreciate the East Bay than to see it through the works of nationally renowned artists who live and work here. These painters, sculptors, and furniture- and jewelry-makers find inspiration throughout the area: not just in the gorgeous natural scenery, diverse culture, and thriving artists’ communities but in the high-tech environment that surrounds us. You can even bring their works home. Yes, if you’re feeling especially generous to yourself or a loved one this season, there’s no better gift than that of great local art. Here are some of our favorite practitioners.
