This perennial Triton audience favorite is a wonderful showcase for some of the best talent around.

This year’s guest juror is Kevin B. Chen! Kevin has been involved in the Bay Area arts community for over two decades as a curator, writer, and visual artist. He currently serves as faculty at San Francisco State University’s School of Art and at Stanford University’s Department of Art and Art History, a member of Recology's Artist in Residence Program Advisory Board, and a Curatorial Committee member of Root Division and Pro Arts Gallery.

He has curated projects for Headlands Center for the Arts, University of Nevada Reno, San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, San Francisco Art Institute, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries, SOMArts Cultural Center, and Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco & Kearny Street Workshop. He was the Program Director of Visual Arts at Intersection for the Arts for over 15 years, where he curated over 70 exhibitions and hundreds of public programs. He has been a funding and residency panelist for Creative Capital Foundation, Multi-Arts Production Fund, Alliance of Artists Communities, Creative Work Fund, City of San Jose, SF Arts Commission, and Headlands Center for the Arts.

In addition to awards presented in four categories (painting, drawing, printmaking, and photography) selected by the guest jurors, a Best of Show award winner will be selected by the Curatorial Team of the Triton. The winner will receive a solo show at the Triton Museum of Art. Now that's a prize!

Congratulations to those whose work has been selected to be included in this year’s Salon exhibition.
