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 (Part 1), followed by a juried show (Part 2). This year the juror will be Renny Pritikin, Chief Curator of the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.
Pritikin selects several outstanding artists from Part 1 of the Artists Annual Exhibition. Pritikin has been a leading figure in the San Francisco Bay Area arts community for decades serving as Co-director of New Langton Arts in San Francisco from 1979 to 1992, Chief Curator at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts from 1992 to 2004, and Director of the Nelson Gallery and Fine Arts Collection at the University of California, Davis from 2004 until 2012. In his current position at The Contemporary Jewish Museum, Pritikin leads all of the museum's exhibitions, educational and public programs, and online programming.
