ArtPush announces the publication of EAST BAY ARTISTS 2020
EAST BAY ARTISTS 2020 is a stunning 9″ x 7″ 100-page full-color LIMITED EDITION art book showcasing the best of East Bay Art. Mixed Media, Paintings, Sculptures, Photographs & Illustrations and Printmaking are just some of the exceptional art featuring 100 of East Bay’s most talented artists.
2020 is a year none of us will ever forget and history will revisit for decades if not centuries. EAST BAY ARTISTS 2020 was driven in part by the COVID-19 Pandemic when visiting galleries and studios has not been possible. But the real inspiration came from the incredible diversity and creativity of the hundreds of artists who have exhibited their work and been part of ArtPush activities over the past several years. EAST BAY ARTISTS 2020 is a celebration of this time, of the artists featured in this book and to all artists everywhere. We feel privileged and fortunate to have among us so many talented and generous artists. More than ever before, during this time of isolation, art is needed to inspire and support connection among us all. We are deeply thankful to all those who contributed to this book in so many ways.
