This juried show features works by more than 100 established and emerging artists and craftspeople who live or work in Emeryville. Now in its 29th year, the exhibition showcases a splendid array of paintings, sculpture, photographs, ceramics, and textiles. The individual works demonstrate the range of Emeryville artists and their engagement with varied aesthetic, political, and social concerns. In addition, Emeryville’s Poet Laureate Sarah Kobrinsky and other local poets offer readings, and Emeryville dance troupe Nancy Karp + Dancers performs a site-specific work. A gala reception with the artists on October 2 is free to the public, with a no-host bar to raise funds for the Emeryville Youth Art Program. Works on exhibit are for sale. Admission to the show is free, and this year’s exhibition space is donated by Emeryville business Grifols, a global health care company.
