Cynosure: guiding star, center of attraction. For Cynosure, eleven newer East Bay galleries have been invited to present a sampling of the emerging talents with whom they work. Though the artists included hail from near and far, they all represent the distinctive character of East Bay contemporary art.

The East Bay contemporary art scene has been gaining increasing recognition in recent years. What began as a loose network of artist collectives is evolving into a vibrant new gallery district that has, in the last three years, established a reputation for making challenging art accessible to a broad public of viewers and collectors. These galleries provide an important forum for emerging artists, including students and graduates of UC Berkeley’s Art Practice program, as they are the first point of entry into the professional landscape for so many young talents. These spaces, in the backyard of Berkeley’s campus, also provide experiential learning opportunities for art students and art appreciators from throughout our community.
