Boundaries and Balance
For SF Bay Area artists

ACCI Gallery in Berkeley, California is the oldest artists co-op west of the Mississippi. It is located in the Gourmet Ghetto area of Berkeley in a beautiful corner location that enjoys old and new visitors seven days a week. For the first time in our history, ACCI is putting out a call for entries to artists from the counties that surround the San Francisco Bay. Our theme is Boundaries and Balance, works created in a 12" x 12" format.

The theme is inspired by the work of Russian artist Kazimir Malevich who, in 1913, created a painting titled Black Square which is said to have been the first painting that wasn’t about a thing or of a thing; rather, it focused on the square, which is by its geometric nature, always in balance. A painting within a square format challenges the inherent static balance of the form with its own dynamic balance within the shape. All works must be no larger than 12” by 12”. 

The juror for this exhibition will be Mark Shunney, curator for the gallery at UC Santa Cruz. Please read the prospectus for requirements and further information.
