Marin Community Foundation Hosts “Transitions’”

Novato, CA (January 5, 2015)—The Marin Community Foundation will host an exhibition,“Transitions,” from January 21 to May 15, 2015, featuring thirty North Bay Area artists aged sixty years and older.

The exhibition will be held at the Foundation’s offices at 5 Hamilton Landing, Suite 200,Novato, CA.

A public reception will be held Wednesday, January 21st from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.

In early November 2014, a Call for Artists was made to North Bay counties including Marin,Sonoma, Mendocino, Napa, and Solano, for artists over sixty years of age whose recent work displayed some form of transition in their art or their life. Artists typically make several transitions throughout their careers, including changes in medium, changes in studio space,and changes in subject matter. The artworks selected represent transitions in the lives ofolder adult artists both metaphorically and literally.

This exhibition includes approximately one hundred artworks selected by three jurors:Megan Wilkinson, former Executive Director of the O’Hanlon Center for the Arts in MillValley; Satri Pencak, independent curator in Sonoma County and former curator of the Sebastopol Center for the Arts; and consulting curator for the Marin CommunityFoundation, Patricia Watts, former Chief Curator at the Sonoma County Museum in SantaRosa.
