Berkeley Central and Kala Art Institute are pleased to present In Formation, the inaugural exhibition of the Berkeley Central Arts Passage. Please join us for a reception for In Formation on Wednesday, December 5, 6-8pm.

In Formation kicks-off the new Berkeley Central exhibition series featuring artworks from Berkeley-based artists and the Kala Art Institute 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 Kauppila’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.

For nearly four decades, Kala Art Institute in West Berkeley, has fostered artistic innovation and excellence through artist residency programs that attract regional, national, and international artists. The range of media supported by Kala’s facilities includes printmaking, photography, book arts, digital media, and video. Emerging and established artists have the opportunity to use Kala’s facilities to develop and exhibit new and experimental artwork. Kala’s public programs include gallery exhibitions, custom printing, art sales, open enrollment classes and workshops, facilities rental, special events, and youth programs.
