Announcing Oakland’s newest alternative art venue located in one of the oldest artist warehouse lofts in the area which now houses the Gray Loft Gallery. The space was conceived by Jan Alderton, who saw potential in the beautiful 3rd floor space when the studio became available recently.
The gallery will be an alternative to traditional gallery spaces and will show work by emerging as well as established artists who want to show their work in a more unconventional venue.
The inaugural show will feature work by more than 25 artists. On display will be photographs, paintings, monoprints and sculptures which reflect love, passion, lust, hope, romance, imagination, true love, self love. This is not a Hallmark Valentine show, but rather a visual dialogue about love in its many incarnations and interpretations. The gallery will also have handmade purses, hats, jewelry, cards and textiles that reflect the theme of love.
Opening reception: Friday, February 10, 6:00 to 9:00 pm
