Introductions 2023


Root Division presents Introductions 2023, the 17th iteration of our annual juried exhibition. The Introductions exhibition showcases the talent of thirteen emerging artists, highlighting artists without gallery representation in the San Francisco Bay Area. Three jurors selected the artists based on the conceptual and formal strength of their work through a highly competitive juror review process. The resulting exhibition includes a diverse range of media and subject matter featuring painting, sculpture, photography, and textiles. This presentation is one of the keystones of Root Division’s gallery program, offering artists exposure to the art community and beyond through an exhibition, reception, and a print publication.

Second Saturday Reception: September 9, 2023, 7-9pm
