DESCRIPTION

The 26th Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition carries on the city’s tradition of celebrating the broad diversity of art and artists within its community by presenting 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 develop provocative works for the annual exhibition. The individual pieces demonstrate the range of Emeryville artists and show their engagement with a host of aesthetic, political, and social concerns. This inclusive community exhibition provides the opportunity to view the work of new artists showing along with continuing artists, resulting in a uniquely ‘Emeryville’ experience.

The Annual Exhibition includes paintings, sculpture, photographs, prints, and ceramics. The collection of artwork for the 26th Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition was selected by a jury of art professionals through artist studio visits. For the second year, independent curator and exhibition designer Kathleen Hanna is serving as curator and juror. The other jurors are Kate Eilertsen, Executive Director, Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, and Seb Hamamjian, Director, Hamamjian Modern, San Francisco and Santa Cruz. (Works on exhibit are for sale.)

 “It is really impressive to me that, even after all these years with the exhibition, with the influx of new artists and the growth of established artists, everything feels new and fresh with the twenty-sixth Annual,” states Sharon Wilchar, Exhibition Coordinator and Chair of the City of Emeryville’s Public Art Advisory Committee.

Contributing artists include Robert Ortbal, sculpture; Canan Tolon, painting; Rik Ritchey, mixed media; Kirk Crippens, photography; Rae Dunn, ceramics; Dean Santner, wood; M. Louise Stanley, painting; Jerry Carniglia, painting; and Ann Weber, sculpture.
