Bay Area Currents is a critically acclaimed juried exhibition showcasing the region's top emerging artists.

Juror Michael Schwager met with 15 artists – representing eleven different Bay Area cities – during studio visits to select work for the exhibition.

Featured Artists: Chandra Baerg, Elizabeth Bennett, Jennifer Brandon, Madelyn Covey, Katie Dorame, Rodney Ewing, Julie Garner, John Hundt, Monica Lundy, Chelsea Pegram, Anna Simson, Patricia Thomas, Chris Thorson, Stephen Whisler, Shannon Wright
