In its fifth year, the goal of Introductions 2011 is to showcase the talent of emerging artists in the San Francisco Bay Area, offering them exposure to the art community and beyond. This exhibition is a keystone of our 2nd Saturday Series, giving the public a chance to view the cutting edge of local art production. Selected from over 200 submissions, this year's jurors -- Linda Geary, Andres Guerrero, and René de Guzman -- chose 12 finalists for the conceptual & formal strength of the work presented. The exhibition includes an array of painting, drawing, sculpture, video, photography and installation.
Linda Geary: Artist; Professor of Painting & Graduate Fine Arts, CCA
Andres Guerrero: Owner, Guerrero Gallery, San Francisco
René de Guzman: Senior Curator of Art, Oakland Museum of California
