BAC's Artists Annual is a celebration of our members who form the deep and rich art community that makes Berkeley Art Center such a unique organization. This salon-style exhibition features small works in a variety of media. The exhibition is presented in two parts: a non-juried presentation, followed by a juried show. This year the juror will be Renny Pritikin, Chief Curator of the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. 

HERE, Part 2 will open January 21 and run through February 26, 2017.
