Emeryville Celebration of the Arts, Inc. announces the Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition, a juried show featuring works of artists and craftspeople - both established and emerging - who live or work in Emeryville. This year marks the 31st anniversary of the Exhibition showcasing an impressive and varied array of paintings, sculptures, photographs, ceramics and textile works. This year’s show will again expand its celebration of the arts to include poetry readings and dance performances. The Exhibition is on display October 7 - 29, 2017. The show is open daily from 11 am to 6 pm; admission is free. Each year the exhibition location is donated by an Emeryville business.

There will be a gala public reception with the artists in attendance on Friday, October 6, from 6 pm to 9 pm. Admission to the reception is free; a no-host bar will raise funds for the Emeryville Youth Art Program.

“Every day hundreds of artists are working in Emeryville and this juried exhibition is their yearly showcase,” explains Sharon Wilchar, exhibition coordinator. “The positive transformation of our city over the past 30 years is impressive. As a player in enhancing the cultural vibrancy of our city and engaging the community through the arts, Emeryville Celebration of the Arts is proud to have been a partner in this transformation.”

Truly a collaborative effort, Emeryville Celebration of the Arts’ annual exhibition is generously supported by the City of Emeryville and its business community, and depends heavily on the volunteer efforts of many including its Board of Directors, Advisory/Operating Committee members, artists, residents and numerous others who help pull together the details of the show. The exhibition represents the unique character of Emeryville, a city that is small in size but grand in the scale and spirit of its collective creativity. The individual pieces of artwork in the Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition 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.
