Fresh Works has become an increasingly popular opportunity for top Bay Area artists to try their luck in having their work professionally appraised and exhibited. Harrington Gallery Director Julie Finegan notes that “last year over 200 artists participated. Finegan adds that the Harrington Gallery receives submissions from across the Bay Area and beyond. All submitted works are carefully reviewed by the jury, who then decide which ones to include, and in addition to these works select a limited number of outstanding winners. @ Cityofpleasantonca.gov>
