Root Division Introductions, 2012

In its sixth year, the goal of Introductions 2012 is to showcase the talent of emerging artists in the San Francisco Bay Area, offering them exposure to the art community and beyond. This exhibition is a keystone of our 2nd Saturday Series, giving the public a chance to view the cutting edge of local art production. Selected from over 230 submissions, this year’s jurors — Sergio De La Torre, Valerie Imus, and Kimberly Johannson — chose 13 finalists for the conceptual & formal strength of the work presented. The exhibition includes an array of painting, drawing, sculpture, video, photography, and installation.
