Summer National Juried Exhibition

Reception: June 11, 5-7 pm
Brian Gross of Brian Gross Fine Art will give a talk at the reception

Summer is coming and MarinMOCA welcomes the season with the Summer National Juried Exhibition. Juror Brian Gross of Brian Gross Fine Art in San Francisco, selected 49 artworks from a total of 1286 entries from 26 states. Artwork in a variety of mediums are represented with a strong presentation of abstract explorations. This survey exhibit shows us how artists explore abstraction from minimalism and formal grid-like color fields to more intuitive, emotion-based content. Process and artistic investigations are inspired by a myriad of sources, both external and internal.
