 The East Bay enclave of Emeryville is well known for its active and diverse arts community and this juried exhibition serves as the city’s annual celebration of its thriving collective creativity. Each year a panel of Bay Area art professionals select the pieces for the annual exhibition. The result is a carefully curated group show featuring the works of artists and craftspeople that live or work in Emeryville. Now in its milestone 35th year, the exhibition continues 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 2021 jurors are Rory Padeken, curator for the San Jose Museum of Art, and Jan Watten, founder and curator of Gray Loft Gallery, Oakland.
