Holidayland on San Pablo Ave

As I mentioned, I stopped by the Compound Gallery on San Pablo Avenue Friday night to check out “Plaid Friday,” which was just one day in the span of the holiday market running until mid-December. Here Obi Kaufmann talks about showing his work for the first time in the gallery he operates Swee(t)Art Drawing Gallery. The show is called Mercurius and Obi can explain the work better than I can.

 

Otherwise, BlankSpace and the other galleries that make up the “Golden Gate Art District” are offering a bonanza of holiday gift items and for $5 you can have your picture taken with Babe, Paul Bunyon’s giant blue ox. The money goes to the East Oakland School of the Arts (one of the Castlemont small schools) and Skyline High. As I understand it from Kerry Johnson, both schools are in dire need of donations to their visual arts departments for supplies. So check it out.
