Kala Art Institute and Honorary Auction Chairs Jeremy Stone and Craig Nagasawa invite you to join us for Art Kala 2021, an exhibition, auction, and benefit to support Kala’s artistic, cultural, and educational programs.

Celebrating Kala’s 47th year, Art Kala 2021 brings together Kala’s creative community and features the inventive and meaningful art being made in the Bay Area. We are thrilled this year to honor Demetri Broxton, Jordan Ann Craig, and Carissa Potter as the 2021 recipients of Kala’s Master Artist Award.  The exhibition will include work by Kota Ezawa, Jim Melchert, Masako Miki, Kelly Ording, Steuart Pittman, Ron Moultrie Sanders, Seiko Tachibana, Tara Tucker, Ryan Whelan, Lena Wolff, Chelsea Wong, and many many more!

From March 12 – May 16th you can view and bid on the artwork on Artsy or in the Kala gallery (open Tues-Fri, noon to 5 pm) at 2990 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94702. No appointment needed for the regular gallery hours on Tue – Fri.

All proceeds from this event support educational and cultural programs that directly serve artists, children, and the community-at-large.
