Saturday, 10 September 2016 - 5:00pm

In celebration of our 80th Anniversary at the Richmond Art Center, this major exhibition Making Our Mark looks to artists who have exhibited, supported, and enriched our programs. Some of the celebrated artists including James Melchert, Hung Liu, Squeak Carnwath, and Lia Cook, had their first exhibitions at the Richmond Art Center and serve as the heart of the Bay Area art community–teaching, mentoring, and lighting a path for younger artists.

We invited each of these artists to put forward a younger artist: someone whom they have personally taught or mentored or whose work should be visible. This is in line with our history and mission at the Richmond Art Center–giving a voice to new artists and opening our galleries to new visions.

Other artists participating in Making Our Mark, include William T. Wiley, Christopher Brown, Mildred Howard, Richard Misrach, Deborah Oropallo, Enrique Chagoya, Allan deSouza, Michael Hall, Johanna Poethig, and Dru Anderson.

The Richmond Art Center has invited Allan deSouza, Professor of Photography and Chair of the Department of Art Practice, University of California Berkeley, to guest curate Marking New Paths, an exhibition of work by current degree candidates, which will be presented in the Community Gallery.
