ArtSpan provides emerging and established artists with diverse opportunities to display their artwork to new art appreciators and seasoned collectors throughout the year.

Art-in-Neighborhoods Exhibitions

The Art-In-Neighborhoods program strives to create visibility and accessibility for local art by connecting communities with local artists and activating vacant spaces with vibrant artwork. We partner with neighborhood businesses and building owners to bring pop-up art exhibitions and art events to dormant storefronts, empty spaces for lease, and businesses seeking artwork for their walls. Local artists who are ArtSpan members are given the opportunity to display, promote and sell their artwork in these diverse venues. The Art-in-Neighborhoods program allow otherwise unused properties/spaces to become creative arenas for celebrating local arts. Learn more about the program on our Art-in-Neighborhoods page and see below for current Art-in-Neighborhoods Exhibitions.

DESCRIPTION:

ArtSpan's annual Selections Juried Exhibition, elevates artists into a more visible place of honor. Success as a professional artist relies on opportunities to be recognized as exceptional, thus ArtSpan produces this exhibition as a vehicle to launch emerging artists’ careers as well as nurture established artists by presenting their work to a distinguished panel of art professionals. The exhibition launches with the annual ArtSpan Gala, where our biggest supporters will feast and celebrate with the selected artists and jurors. 

 

Selections 2017 will take place at Heron Arts, February 11 & 12, with participating artists invited to the ArtSpan Gala on Saturday, February 11, and a public Artist Reception on February 12. Heron Arts Center is a gallery and contemporary art center located at 7 Heron Street, San Francisco, CA, 94103.

 

THEME: ART BUILDS BRIDGES

By definition, the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement are regarded collectively as culture. The culture of San Francisco is rich with working artists, innovation, diversity, and triumph in the face of adversity. As we move forward into a new chapter of American history, we must build bridges that connect the cultural fabric of the past with our collective growth in the near future.
