The Exhibition carries on the city’s tradition of celebrating the broad diversity of art and artists within its community by presenting new discoveries each year. The sheer number and array of artists living or working in Emeryville illustrates the city's cultural vibrancy and provides an impressive creative pool that continues to develop provocative works. The individual pieces demonstrate the range of Emeryville artists and show their engagement with a host of aesthetic, political, and social concerns. This inclusive community exhibition provides the opportunity to view the work of new artists shown along with continuing artists, resulting in a uniquely ‘Emeryville’ experience.

The Annual Exhibition includes paintings, sculpture, photographs, prints, and ceramics. The collection of artwork was selected by a jury of art professionals through artist studio visits. For the second year, independent curator and exhibition designer Kathleen Hanna is serving as curator and juror. The other jurors are Kate Eilertsen, Executive Director, Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, and Seb Hamamjian, Director, Hamamjian Modern, San Francisco and Santa Cruz.
(Works on exhibit are for sale.)

Contributing artists include Robert Ortbal, sculpture; Canan Tolon, painting; Rik Ritchey, mixed media; Kirk Crippens, photography; Rae Dunn, ceramics; Dean Santner, wood; M. Louise Stanley, painting; Jerry Carniglia, painting; and Ann Weber, sculpture.
