The Gray Loft Gallery celebrates the achievements of emerging and established artists, with an emphasis on those who live and work in the Bay Area, in a non-traditional art space.  The mission of the gallery is to provide exhibition opportunities for artists in a setting that is an alternative to the traditional gallery model.  The Gray Loft Gallery is a unique venue located on the 3rd floor of one of Oakland’s oldest artists’ work/live warehouses in Jingletown, a vibrant arts district.

Weekend events will include wine tastings and artist talks. Check our website for updates.

Sunday Graffiti Paint-over…

Neighborhood clean up

Today was a warm sunny Sunday.
Armed with paint rollers, and huge buckets of paint several of us met together to paint out graffiti on local Jingletown buildings.

Today was a great day to see just how the Jingletown community works, several of us gathered to do a bit of clean up.
All the while more Jingletown locals wandered in and out with dogs, bikes, and chatted as we painted, swept, scrubbed and cleaned up around the White Elephant Sale Building.
I ran into with Lee the Puzzlemaker on my way home and we talked about an art project I am working on this month.
