11th Annual Fresh Works Juried Exhibition
April 1 through June 10, 2023
Reception & Awards Ceremony on Saturday, April 1, 2023, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
The Harrington Gallery is excited to welcome back the 11th edition of our annual Fresh Works juried exhibition. After a two-year break amidst the pandemic, we are eager for the return of our annual group show which showcases artwork that has been created in the past year. An open call to emerging and established artists throughout the Bay Area, 72 exemplary artworks were chosen by our juror, Ashley L. Voss. Featuring an array of mediums, visitors can expect to see works of oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, and more.
During the exhibition’s opening reception on April 1st, we will also be showcasing floral ikebana arrangements inspired by artworks in the show. Practitioners of the Sogetsu school of ikebana which is known for its versatile interpretation of plant materials, these displays will be crafted by teacher Cindy Kiraku Ting and her students. These arrangements will be on view at the gallery until Saturday, April 8th. To learn more about Cindy’s courses at the Firehouse Arts Center, visit pleasantonfun.com.
