West Coast Biennial features original art from West Coast artists living in California, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. The exhibition provides a forum for both established and emerging artists working on the west coast in a diversity of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture and mixed media.

WIth over 100 works by Bay Area artists, working in a variety of media, this beautiful exhibit is open to the public in the Historic Benicia Arsenal.

Jennifer Perlmutter, Juror, balances the influences of nature and civilization in her work, combining environmental character with urban features in a complex layering to create a push-pull of color, figure and texture. Botanicals were her first subjects, used to explore watercolors and oils in the late 90s.
