Crossing Boundaries
For SF Bay Area artists

Friday June 2 – Saturday July 22, 2017

Reception for Artists Friday June 2, 5-8pm. Coincides with Santa Rosa's SOFA District First Friday Open Studios

Boundaries, real and metaphorical, are inherent in the human condition. In the global political climate in which we find ourselves today, monuments to division, whether physical – a “big, beautiful wall” – or idealogical, such as racist and nationalistic policies, can become catalysts for creativity and activism.

This show is an opportunity for artists to confront and to cross the barriers separating us, creating discourse across boundaries. Suggested themes include displaced populations, refugees, immigration, gender identity, personal or emotional boundaries.

This is a non-juried show open to Sonoma County and Bay Area artists. Artwork should be no larger than 40 inches on any side. Artists may enter up to 3 pieces in any medium.

Drop off artwork: Tuesday and Wednesday May 30 and 31, 1-5pm. Entry forms are available at the gallery and may be filled out at the same time as dropping off art. All pieces must be for sale. Artists receive 55% of sales and Chroma Gallery 45%.

Entry fee: $15 per entry. $40 for 3 entries

Deadline: 05-30-2017
