ArtSpan and the California College of the Arts have partnered to showcase 30 under-30 emerging artists from the Bay Area in a juried exhibition. The opening reception is on Thursday, June 5 at Varnish Fine Art Gallery in the SOMA district. The show is comprised of ArtSpan SF Open Studios artists and CCA alumni, faculty and students.

ArtSpan, CCA, and Varnish Fine Art Gallery invite you to see the next generation of Bay Area Artists in "30 Under 30," opening Thursday, June 5 and continuing through June 28, 2008. This collaboration celebrates the Y Generation of entrepreneurial artists, honoring them for their talent, drive, and bravery in a world that is progressively getting harder to gain ground in.

This show was open to under-30 ArtSpan artists and members and CCA students, faculty, and alumni. Jurors Kerri Stephens and Jennifer Rogers of Varnish Fine Art Gallery and Justin Giarla of the Shooting Gallery selected 30 artists from the numerous submissions. The changing times bring forth new ideas and understandings to visual art, and this show was especially interested in the responses of the Bay Area Generation Y crowd. The goal of this exhibition is to give young artists a voice and assist them in the building their careers. ArtSpan recognizes and celebrates the excellence of art institutions like CCA, which provide the necessary tools for its students' success in their chosen art form. ArtSpan is an organization that supports all artists, regardless of where they are in their careers.
