Valentine's Day may be over, but the Gray Loft Gallery is filled with incredible and affordable art by some of the best emerging and established artists in the Bay Area, and the Pacific Northwest.  

 On display are photographs, paintings, monoprints and sculptures, which reflect love, passion, lust, hope, romance, broken hearts, true love and love poetry. The gallery also has handmade purses, hats, jewelry, hand-blown glass, hand crafted cards and textiles that reflect the theme of love. Art in The Love Show is priced from $8 to $500. 

Collect art and buy local, which supports the arts in Oakland!

The inaugural show in Oakland’s newest alternative art venue has been a huge success.  We hope you will come and support our artists as well as our mission to provide an alternative to traditional gallery spaces and to exhibit work by emerging as well as established artists who want to show their work in an unconventional venue.  

The third floor gallery is located in the heart of Jingletown, an historic and thriving artist district Oakland, in the first legal artists live/work building in the area.  

A few examples of the work included in the show are below. Please visit our blog to see the complete list of artists and more photographs of the gallery and the art.
