The Compound Gallery, Oakland

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. Untitled



Untitled beautiful gallery space. Here is the art of letterpress show that just finished


a really small gallery exists inside (actually rotates artists!)

Untitled a view from the gallery to the studio space


Untitled above: the Artist & Gallery Owner, Lena Reynoso, and her Oakland persona series. I believe these are etchings done on letterpress

Untitled bad cell phone photo of the silkscreens


Untitled one of the coolest things that the compound does is their "Art in a box" campaign, which sends out a monthly piece of art by different artists to subscribers.



Thanks for letting me take a tour and shoot.

Ride for Red Silk Screen

Some silkscreens that I made with Tom Roe, for  "Ride for Red," a benefit art show for AIDS life cycle, happening this Thursday @ Space Gallery on Polk St from 6:00–10:30pm. Designs inspired by photographs from personal bike rides. There will only be 8 of each print available, so if you can, please come by and check out a lot of great work, at a great gallery, for an even greater cause. Also, click through for some fun photos at Stache press. Red_birds
