Opening Night is Fri., Oct. 10, from 6-9pm in Heritage Square at 6121 Hollis St. next to Bucci’s. The buzz: local artist Tony DeMartile will create digitally evocative iPhone portraits of reception attendees* and an astounding 117 artists and craftspeople, who live or work in Emeryville, will transform the exhibition space into a fountain of creativity with their visions and talent. On Opening Night visitors can meet the artists and talk about their artwork (all pieces are for sale), as they nibble on tasty treats. A no-host bar will feature wine and beer and donate proceeds to the Emeryville Youth Art Program. Food and beverage donors include Doyle Street Café, Watergate Market, Townhouse Bar & Grill, The Broken Rack and Ruby*s Cafe.
Don’t miss this unique Emeryville community event as the Bob Johns Trio will jazz up the art exhibit vibe. Read more about the 28th Annual Emeryville Art Exhibit.
Each year the exhibition location is generously donated by an Emeryville business. This year the space at 6121 Hollis St. in Heritage Square is donated by Wareham Development.
* Opening Night is free and iPhone portraits are a $25 donation to benefit the non-profit Emeryville Celebration of the Arts.
