Transitions is the theme of the 7th Annual Juried Art Show presented by Piedmont Center for the Arts, now running on weekend days from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. until May 16.

PCA received a record 500 submissions of original art created within the past year and 35 pieces were selected by guest jurors René de Guzman, Senior Curator of Art at Oakland Museum of California, and Danielle Fox, Principal of Slate Gallery in Oakland, according to the PCA website.

Cash awards of $4,000 are allocated annually to the top award winners, with an emphasis on honoring emerging artists in the Bay Area thanks to a generous gift by the family of John P. Thornborrow.
