DESCRIPTION

Please come for Community Open House on September 22nd from 2-5pm and stay for the Opening Reception from 5-7pm.

Special presentation on the occasion of Berkeley Art Center’s 45th anniversary @ 6pm

Local Treasures, a bi-annual exhibition series started in 2010, features artists who have had a significant impact in the artistic fabric of this community. Co-curated by Berkeley Art Center Director, Suzanne Tan and Richard Whittaker, publisher of works & conversations, the focus of this year’s exhibition is on Bay Area ceramics and includes the work of Clayton Bailey, Viola Frey, Ted Fullwood, Jon Gariepy, Mary Law, Annabeth Rosen, Nancy Selvin, Richard Shaw, Sandy Simon, John Toki, and Wanxin Zhang. An array of masterful and mysterious works in clay, the exhibition presents a compelling individualistic and authentic approach to the medium as expressed in the work of these accomplished artists. A full color catalog with lead essay written by Nancy M. Servis will accompany the exhibition.

We extend our deepest gratitude to the Zellerbach Family Foundation and The Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation for their generous support of this exhibition and  to the Winifred and Harry Allen Foundation their support of the exhibition’s accompanying catalog.
