First Fridays of the month is the Oakland Art Murmur, and as a new resident I headed out to see what I could see just a few blocks from my apartment.
This time I kept it in Temescal, and cruised by 4707 Telegraph, Smokey’s Tangle next door, and the Royal Nonesuch. Next time I plan on extending my range by biking around; the galleries in the “Murmur” are spread throughout Oakland, in Temescal, West Oakland, and Uptown. The show at 4707 Telegraph was called Babylon.
I like this piece, by Shannon Shaw:
And this one, by Richie Bucher:
The show at the Royal Nonesuch Gallery was called Lending Library.
I really don’t want to be a hater, but didn’t I see something like this at 826 Valencia Pirate Store?
Visitors were invited to take one item from the drawers. This is what I picked.
Twins were a theme at the Lending Library.
I saw a 2-headed turtle in Venice Beach once.
I don’t know what is in these drawers.
