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.
