Opening Reception: Sunday, December 10, 5 - 7 pm
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 Maria Porges, Associate Professor at California College of the Arts. Porges is an artist and writer whose work has been exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions since the late eighties. She received a SECA award from the SFMOMA and has twice been in residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts. A finalist for the Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Art Writer's Grant in 2014, her critical writing has appeared in many publications, including Artforum, Art in America, Sculpture, American Ceramics, Glass, the New York Times Book Review, and a host of other art magazines. She has also authored essays for over 100 exhibition catalogues and dozens of scripts for museum audio tours.

Special thanks to all of the talented BAC Members who entered work in our 2017 Artists Annual Exhibition. The Artists Annual Exhibition is an exciting opportunity for artists to have hundreds of eyes on their work and in particular, the eyes of this year's juror Maria Porges, Associate Professor at California College of the Arts.
The following artists have been selected for an exhibition titled "This Place" which will include urban and rural, natural and supernatural environments that portray a sense of place.

This multimedia exhibition and live event feature the work of poet and storyteller Alan Bern; dancer and choreographer Lucinda Weaver; and artist Robert Woods. With deep roots in Berkeley, all three have been working along parallel lines and then weaving their work together in site-specific collaborations. Woods and Bern have worked together under the fine publishing imprint Lines & Faces for more than forty years. Weaver, who danced with the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company, and Bern have performed together for fifteen years as PACES: dance & poetry fit to the space. Bern and Weaver will perform a dance/poetry collaboration based on broadsides by Bern and Woods that feature Bern’s translations of Dante and his poem “Dialogue,” a dramatic exchange between Hildegard of Bingen and St. Francis of Assisi. The illustrated broadsides exhibit by Woods and Bern will be on view during gallery hours March 7 - 17, 2018.
All funds from tickets and art sales donated to the BAC by the artists. A brief reception will follow each performance.
