What: Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition - Celebrating the Art & Artists of Emeryville


The small East Bay enclave of Emeryville is designated by the California Arts Council as one of only 14 districts across state that serve as premier Cultural Districts, highlighting thriving cultural diversity and unique artistic identities.


The Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition serves as a celebration of the city’s vibrant collective creativity and an invitation for community members and visitors to experience a sampling of artwork created by Emeryville artists. Each year a panel of Bay Area art professionals is invited into private studios and art spaces to select the pieces for the annual exhibition. The result is a carefully curated group show featuring the works of nearly 100 artists and craftspeople that live or work in Emeryville. The exhibition is open to artists of all media and includes paintings, sculpture, photographs, ceramics, textiles, furniture, jewelry, glass works, and literary arts. For more than 30 years, the exhibition has continued to uncover emerging talent, along with new work by established artists.


The Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition is sponsored by Emeryville Celebration of the Arts, Inc. Independent curator and exhibition designer Kathleen Hanna is curator and juror. The other 2019 jurors are George Lawson, director/owner of George Lawson Art Gallery, Emeryville, and Elizabeth Shypertt, co-founder of Velvet da Vinci Gallery in San Francisco.


There will be a gala public reception with the artists in attendance on Friday, October 4, from 6 pm to 9 pm. A no-host bar will raise funds for the Emeryville Youth Art Program.
