DESCRIPTION

Emeryville Celebration of the Arts, Inc. presents the 27th Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition, a juried show featuring works of eighty artists and craftspeople - both established and emerging - who live or work in Emeryville. The work includes paintings, sculpture, photographs, ceramics and textiles. 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.

This year’s exciting Bay Street location was generously donated by Madison Marquette. The character of Bay Street Emeryville is drawn from the rich history of its bayside site as a place where people have gathered for decades to live, work and play, providing the perfect environment to showcase this unique community 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 citywide exhibition provides the opportunity to view the work of new artists showing along with continuing artists, resulting in a uniquely ‘Emeryville’ experience.

Contributing artists include Canan Tolon, painting; Po Shun Leong, wood; Kirk Crippens, photography; Rae Dunn, ceramics; Ana Lisa Hedstrom, textiles; M. Louise Stanley, painting; Sara Paloma, ceramics, Yvette Buigues, mixed media; and Ann Weber, sculpture. Works on exhibit are for sale.
