Overview

Above: Column VII by Emil Yanos

The annual American Artwork presents a juried collection of contemporary painting, photography, sculpture and craft. Now in its 17th year, copies are printed in Hong Kong and mailed to design firms, art consultants, galleries and high-income zip codes.

The publication is juried by California College of the Arts painting instructor Howard Eige and former Oakland craft gallery owner Jan Christensen-Heller.

Originally titled American Art Collector, our publications were called "stunning" by the San Francisco Chronicle, and "works of art in themselves" by the Sacramento Bee. Since 2002, we have exhibited over 3500 emerging and mid-career artists, with some great feedback.
