Introductions 2009
An Exhibition of One Dozen Emerging Bay Area Artists

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 12, 7 to 10 pm
Exhibition Dates: September 9 - 26, 2009
New Gallery Hours: Wednesdays - Saturdays, 2-6 pm (or by appointment)

This exhibition features painting, drawing, photography, sculpture & video by 12 emerging artists living and/or working in the Bay Area. Chosen from over 160 submissions, jurors Glen Helfand, Meg Shiffler, and Eleanor Harwood decided on each artist for both the formal and conceptual strength of the work presented. The goal of Introductions 2009 is to create exposure for emerging artists in San Francisco by showcasing their artwork. This exhibition is part of Root Division's ongoing Second Saturday Exhibitions Series in which we present a unique event or exhibition opening on the second Saturday of each month. The goal of the series is to present engaging and high quality artwork, thereby nurturing the accessibility & appreciation of Bay Area visuals arts & artists.
