About 2nd Friday Art Talks
Grab a beer or glass of wine and let the art talk lift your spirits right from your very own couch!

With the world facing so many challenges, artists are deeply impacted. With limited exhibitions, shows to perform at or patrons at their studios, the economic and social impact on artists is immeasurable.  You are invited to a panel discussion led by Victor Mavedzenge in collaboration with ArtPush.org where artists discuss their state, coping mechanisms and hopes for the future.

Take a look at who was in the book 2020

JurorsArtPush Board
Selection Process: There will be a simple scoring system used privately by each judge.  Our goal is to demonstrate the wide variety and diversity of styles in the East Bay.  There are a limited number of pages and not every entry will be accepted. If your work is not selected for this project it does not mean that your art is not good enough, it simply means that there is limited space.

More about the selection process:
Only works from artists living or working in the East Bay qualify for inclusion.  Images submitted that are below resolution qualities necessary for printing are automatically eliminated. In order to make the judging process as fair and unbiased as possible an online scoring application was developed so that each judge can evaluate submissions in private.

The online scoring application is a system that lists each image by number without identifying the artist. ArtPush board members evaluate each work based on a scale of 1-5: Originality, Craftsmanship, Elements of Art, Composition, Unity & Variety, Medium & Texture, Use of Space, Presentation and Degree of Difficulty. Final selections are chosen for artworks that received the highest overall score.

We deeply appreciate everyone who submitted their artwork regardless of whether or not the work is featured in this publication
