Thursday, July 3rd, 2008 at 4:13 pm in Art Murmur, Night Owl, Oakland nightlife.

It might be July 4 Independence Day but that won’t stop the first Fridays Art Murmur gallery stroll. Mercury 20 will be open from 6-9pm and invites folks to drop by after the picnic and before the fireworks for the opening of two¬†shows: Fields of Disturbance, paintings by Joan Weiss and Misremembering You, mixed media and sculpture by Chela Fielding.
Visit the Web site for interviews with gallery artists. Can you guess which of Mercury 20 featured artists was the nanny for a famous feminist artist? Who hopped a train and rode the grain car to Sparks and back? Check out the interviews for answers to those questions and more:
Mercury 20 is at 25 Grand Ave (at Broadway) in downtown Oakland. For more info, call Kathleen at 510-701-4620 or email mercurytwenty@gmail.com.

    Just read your article about Trio Bistro closing. I was a regular on Wednesday nights for tango and loved that restarurant and Kimala and Chantal. They have been much missed in our community while the restaurant has been closed, and it is very sad to hear they will close permanently. My friends and I would often show up on a Saturday night, late, (after 11:00 p.m.) and Kimala and Chantal would put tango on so we could dance, and always be ready to cook something and serve us drinks. It felt like our own private club. They are wonderful people and will be much missed. I would love to be part of some kind off send of for them.

    The Friday art murmur shows are great. I love seeing all those people in downtown Oakland after hours. I’ll be back for sure on Aug. 1.
