Open Studios + Black Warrior Project RSVP

 Registration is closed for this event


Join us as Root Division commemorates 20 years of cultivating community-minded artists and arts-minded community!

Join us on June 11 for the final event* in a series of 20-Year Anniversary festivities! This exhibition celebrates Root Division’s mission of serving a diverse community of artists. From 5–7 pm, Open Studios offer the community an opportunity to meet artists and learn more about their unique studio practices. From 7–9 pm, join the opening reception of the Black Warrior Mentorship Project and Studio Fellowship Exhibition

The Fellowship Exhibition in the back gallery features an  eclectic array of work from 7 Root Division Studios Fellows. In the front gallery is a culminating show from Bay Area Black Artist Studio Fellow, Aambr Newsome:
 The Black Warrior Mentorship Project honors 4 Bay Area Black educators. Based on thoughtful interviews with the educators, Aambr has created large dimensional wood paintings showcasing how these mentors practice self love as well as appreciate and motivate others–aiding them in becoming warriors in their communities. 

This event is free or pay-what-you-can with registration. 

Proceeds directly benefit local artists, free art classes for Bay Area youth, and the continued success of Root Division's unique model for keeping artists working at the heart of San Francisco.

Every level of support adds to our celebration and vision for the future!
