The Potential Of Objects

April 2 – June 5, 2022
Reception: Saturday, April 2, 3-5pm

The Potential of Objects is a new exhibition highlighting eleven emerging artists with ties to the Bay Area who use everyday materials to thoughtfully explore the human condition. In their hands, objects double as conduits, vessels, mirrors, and talismans to engage with a range of social and political issues. The works on view deploy a variety of media—clay, textile, assemblage, photography, performance, sound, and more—and aspire to spark dialogue and debate. The exhibition considers the capacity of sculpture to transform our relationships—both to the world that surrounds us and to one another. Artists in the exhibition: Teresa Baker, Ashwini Bhat, Demetri Broxton, Sophronia Cook, Tyler Cross & Kyle Lypka, Renée Gertler, Cathy Lu, Masako Miki, Natani Notah and Peter Simensky.

Admission: $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students. Free for members.
