In its sixth year, the goal of Introductions 2012 is to showcase the talent of emerging artists in the San Francisco Bay Area, offering them exposure to the art community and beyond. This exhibition is a keystone of our 2nd Saturday Series, giving the public a chance to view the cutting edge of local art production. Selected from over 230 submissions, this year's jurors -- Sergio De La Torre, Valerie Imus, and Kimberly Johannson -- chose 13 finalists for the conceptual & formal strength of the work presented. The exhibition includes an array of painting, drawing, sculpture, video, photography, and installation.

Six Female Artists Redefining Portraiture

3 February - 3 March 2012 

Featuring Works by Nicole Crescenzi, Brynda Glazier, Ashley Harris, Stephanie Inagaki, Cathy Lu, and Marta Spurgeon

Aggregate Space presents a group show in which portrait is undone. Standard effigy is abandoned as the subjects become secondary to the artistic vision and technique. The resulting sculptures, photographs, and drawings embody new realizations of beauty.
