Bay Area Currents Juried Exhibition


Exhibition Opening: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2018  6-9PM        Smith Andersen North GALLERY

Bay Area Currents was established to provide an opportunity for local artists working with photography to exhibit in the Bay Area and to discover and connect with other artists in the community. There was no single theme for this call, instead we were looking to see what everyone has been up to of late.  What we received showed a broad range of interpretations of photography including documentary, expressive, and experimental works manifested through a wide variety of styles and approaches.
