Gallery Opening:

There’s a new new gallery opening tonight in Oakland, California.  A friend of mine out there (who’s also one of the featured artists) told me about it, and if you’re in the area, it’s most definitely worth heading out there!  I wish I were in Cali right now so I could go… it sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun!

It’s called the Gray Loft Gallery, and it’s at 2889 Ford Street #32 in the Jingletown section of Oakland, CA.  The gallery opens its doors tonight at 6P, with The Love Show displaying during a special opening reception until close (9P).  The Love Show features 50 artists and runs from February 10 to the 25, and, “…is not a Hallmark Valentine show, but rather a visual dialogue about love in its many incarnations and interpretations.”  No only will you see more traditional art forms, such as photos, paintings, monoprints and sculptures, but the gallery will also have handmade purses, hats, jewelry, hand-blown glass, cards and textiles on display.  The theme of love doesn’t mean this is a Hallmark Valentine show.  Art featured in The Love Show reflects love, passion, lust, hope, romance, broken hearts, true love, and self love.  Sounds like a great show!

Today the Grey Loft Gallery folks are working hard to put the finishing touches on things… you know, sweeping floors, making sure the art is not upside down… all those silly things 😉

So if you’re in Oakland, go, and have fun for me.  I’ll be here in Chicago.  With the snow.

If you can’t make it to the opening tonight,  you should head over there on Saturday the 11th, because there’s going to be a wine tasting!  How awesome is that?  Art and wine?  Win!
