Introductions 2020: Call for Artists

Root Division

Entry Deadline: Jun. 8

1131 Mission ST
San Francisco, CA 94103


Root Division invites artists working in all genres to submit work for our annual juried exhibition, Introductions 2020. Each year, Root Division presents the work of 12 Bay Area artists in an exhibition and catalogue juried by three prominent arts professionals.

Introductions highlights emerging Bay Area artists without gallery representation. Artists are selected through a highly competitive juror review based on the conceptual and formal strength of the work. The resulting exhibition includes a diverse range of media and subject matter featuring video, installation, sculpture, photography and painting.
Introductions is a keystone of Root Division’s exhibition programming — offering exposure to emerging artists and a chance for the public to learn about up and coming creative voices.

Eligibility requirements:
▪ Artists must be living in one of 9 counties of the San Francisco Bay Area.
▪ Artwork submitted for review (or work very similar in nature to that submitted) must be available for listed exhibition dates.
▪ Artists cannot have existing gallery representation in the Bay Area.

Exhibition Dates: August 19 – September 26, 2020

**We are working to develop responsive and virtual modes of sharing this exhibition in the event that the COVID-19 situation continues to affect our programming into the summer and fall months.**
