The 24th Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition celebrates the work of Emeryville artists and includes paintings, sculpture, photographs, prints, textiles, ceramics, and glass works. This unique and inclusive community exhibition presents new discoveries each year. 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 for the annual exhibition. 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 for the 24th annual exhibition was selected by a panel of jurors including, Paul Tomidy, independent curator and visual artist; Mina Dresden, owner, Mina Dresden Gallery, San Francisco; and Steve Pon, Gallery Exhibitions Supervisor, SFMOMA Artists Gallery, San Francisco. Tomidy returns for the fifteenth year to curate this exhibition. (Works on exhibition are for sale.)

The mission of the non-profit Emeryville Celebration of the Arts, Inc. is to foster an appreciation for the arts and artists of Emeryville, and to promote the city as a culturally vital and progressive center for living and working.  For more than twenty years the Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition has continued to support this mission by providing a free public venue, open to all, to experience the rich diversity of artistic expression of those who live and work within the city of Emeryville.

“The Celebration of the Arts is a door to the arts community that is an enduring part of Emeryville – its past, present, and very hopeful future,” states Sharon Wilchar, Exhibition Coordinator and Chair of the City of Emeryville’s Public Art Advisory Committee. “Every day hundreds of artists are working here.  This juried exhibition is their yearly showcase.”

The 2010 Exhibiton features the works of 94 artists and craftspeople. Contributing artists include Kirk Crippens, photography; Rae Dunn, ceramics; Ana Lisa Hedstrom, textiles; Teresa Kalnoskas, painting; Shawna Peterson, neon sculpture; Rik Ritchey, sculpture; Dean Santner, furniture; and Camille Seaman, photography.
