Piedmont Center for the Arts

4th Annual Juried Art Show

Jan. 7 - Jan. 29


Opening Reception Friday, Jan. 6 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.





Piedmont’s well-recognized annual Juried Art Show returns for the fourth year at the Piedmont Center for the Arts.

The public is cordially invited to an Opening Reception at the Center this Friday, January 6, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The call for entries went out this year to a wide range of artists throughout the greater Bay Area, and the response was impressive. More than 170 artists submitting 550 art works, including paintings, photography, prints and drawings. A total of 30 artists were selected to exhibit their works, representing art from all nine Bay Area counties, from Sonoma to Santa Clara. 

Selections for the show were made by two curators from Bay Area museums who served as judges of the 2017 exhibit. The selections this year were made byCarin Adams of the Oakland Museum of California, and Piedmont resident Sarah Roberts with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.  A total of $4000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the top artists through an endowment by the Thornborrow family.  

For the first time in the art show’s four-year history, the work of two Piedmont artists, Melanie Macy and Larraine Seiden, was selected for display.  

The Juried Art Show Exhibit will be open for viewing on Saturdays and Sundays, from 12 to 3 p.m., Saturday, January 7 through Sunday, January 29.

As a non-profit organization, the PCA brings the exhibit to the public for free, but welcomes donations for the continued development of the facility and programming.
