Resident Feature

“Slopes of Diablo” Juried Exhibition

May 14 – June 25, 2022 

Every four years the Valley Art Gallery holds a juried exhibition celebrating the iconic mountain that dominates our skyline. As it changes from winter’s green to summer’s gold, it brings out the best work in any artist that observes it! This year’s event features the finest of over 100 entries, juried by the celebrated local artist Randy Sexton. For a complete list of participating artists, see our website. 

Of course, our Spring Collection of some 300 new endeavors will continue to be available on our unique sliding panels. This includes work from across a wide spectrum of media, motifs, formats, sizes and price points — all available for sale or rent through our exclusive “No Regrets” rental program. 

Also on hand is our unique display of unusual fine crafts and artist-designed gift cards. 

Please note that we’ll be happy to arrange a personal one-on-one appointment at your convenience during, as well as outside regular business hours. Call or email the gallery. 

Our new show is sure to extend our over 70 plus year tradition of presenting the best of the best East Bay artists — a record we’re quite proud of. 

So please, drop by the gallery and have a listen. 

Free, open to the public
