BAYarts explores diversity this month

The BAYarts Juried Exhibition features a variety of artists and interesting combinations of mixed media.

This March, BAYarts is hosting two gallery shows that put an emphasis on diversity.

In the Sullivan Family Gallery is the 2016 BAYarts Juried Exhibition, judged by Corrie Slawson and Susan Squires. Gallery Coordinator Eileen Stockdale says the juried show is exciting because it brings in a variety of local artists and displays media of all sorts, including combinations of mixed media they haven't seen much of before.

In the Diane Boldman Education Gallery is the spring exhibition "Pattern & Design," curated by Darrelle Centuori and Shari Wilkins. The work in this show strives to demonstrate the way patterns connect threads in a purposeful way. Centuori has been passionate about exploring this topic. "Understanding patterns is a matter of perception, and perception is often interpreted as reality. Somewhere between perception and reality is where art lives, and where new patterns may begin to be discovered."

Participants for the "Pattern" exhibition include: Adolfo Bimer, Antonia Cruz, Lauren Davies, Steve Gillett, Halim Ina, Tim Lachina, Chris Mason, Nancy McEntee, Aimee McNamee, Raheleh Mohammad, Benjamin Montague, Emily Smith, John Tellisha, Eric Vaughn, Elisa Vietri and Sam Hubish.

An opening reception for both shows will be held Friday, March 4, 7-9 p.m.
