Berkeley Central and Kala Arts Institute present In Formation, the inaugural exhibition of the Berkeley Central Arts Passage. Please join us for a reception on Wednesday, December 5, 6-8pm. In Formation kicks-off this new exhibition series featuring artworks from Berkeley-based artists and the Kala community. With three exhibitions yearly, Berkeley Central Arts Passage looks forward to being a part of the vibrant downtown Berkeley Arts District and forging new connections between artists and audience.

In Formation hosts a fresh perspective on the inner workings of formalism – color, form, and interdependency: Bean Gilsdorf’s flag-like rubbings of neighbors’ cars; Maggie Haas’s brazen yet delicate paintings of building units; Jesse Houlding’s “truck drawings” made surprisingly on his way around town; Jesse Boardman Kaupplia’s inside-out explosion of the traditional print-making process; Crystal Roethlisberger’s rendezvous with incremental variation; and Anthony Ryan’s permutations of order in wood, screenprints, and woven paper.
