Here is my second attempt to make black and white images of local businesses that I find interesting. The Compound Gallery in Oakland is an art space that offers studio or locker access for ceramics, silkscreening, printmaking, woodworking, and letterpress for a monthly fee. I was really impressed by the active gallery space combined with the interdisciplinary facilities available. Here are a few black and white images that I made touring the gallery. A few cell phone snapshots made it in here as well.
a really small gallery exists inside (actually rotates artists!)
above: the Artist & Gallery Owner, Lena Reynoso, and her Oakland persona series. I believe these are etchings done on letterpress
Thanks for letting me take a tour and shoot.
