Keeping in step with current SIP protocol and the challenges of social distancing, the 34th Annual Emeryville Art Exhibition will be presented online, featuring 169 pieces of artwork by 85 Emeryville artists. This year the 2020 virtual exhibition allows visitors to be socially-distanced yet culturally-connected with a live-streamed opening night event, online artist interviews, videos, art shop, down-loadable art map, poetry workshop, and more.
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 selects the pieces for the exhibition though a jury process. The result is a carefully curated group show featuring the works of artists and craftspeople that live or work in Emeryville. The exhibition is open to artists of all media and includes paintings, sculpture, photographs, prints, ceramics, textiles, video, 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. Contributing artists this year include painters M. Louise Stanley, Frank Cole, Gail Tarantino, Foad Satterfield, Yuzo Nakano, and John W Wood; choreographer Nancy Karp; clay artists Cuong Ta, Jeff Margolin, James Morris, and Bill Schwob; photographers Susan Scott, Troy Ziel, Addie Jenkins, Xan Walker, and Jeannie O’Connor; printmakers Kazuko Watanabe, Julitette Chone´, and Erin Fong; Ann Holsberry working in mixed media; sculptors Ken Kalman, Kim Thoman, Cheryl Coon, and Mark Galt; and a special tribute to artist Joseph DiStefano.
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 2020 jurors are Christine Koppes, Curator and Director of Public Programs at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (SJICA), and Kathryn Funk, independent exhibits organizer and curator, formerly with SJICA, Montalvo Arts Center, and Fresno Art Museum.
