Eleven ICB members have been selected to exhibit work in The de Young Open. ICB ART, located in Sausalito, is a community of artists, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognized. The de Young Open’s second triennial juried community art exhibition will showcase talent from across the nine Bay Area counties in the museum’s Herbst Exhibition Galleries on the lower level. This year, 7,700 submissions were juried by a group of local artists and museum curators. Of those submissions, 900 pieces were selected for the show. Designed to celebrate and support the Bay Area’s local art communities, this exhibition allows artists to offer their works for sale and retain 100% of the proceeds. The exhibition runs through January 7, 2024.

The San Francisco State University creative writing graduate went on to write for publications like the San Francisco Bay Guardian and KQED Arts among others prior to joining the Marin Magazine staff. Topics Kasia has covered include travel, trends, mushroom hunting, an award-winning series on social media addiction and loads of other random things. When she’s not busy blogging or researching and writing articles, she’s either at home writing postcards and reading or going to shows. Recently, Kasia has been trying to branch out and diversify, ie: use different emojis. Her quest for the perfect chip is never-ending.
