Gray Loft Gallery ~ Closing Party!

Closing Party!
Join us for the last day of this exhibit
August 24, 2:00 to 6:00 pm

Meet the artists, enjoy local wine and experience the gallery which has been called a "hidden jewel" in Jingletown.


A three person exhibition featuring
paintings by Lynn McGeever, glass sculpture and paintings by Bruce Pizzichillo, photography by Elizabeth M. Williams.

This exhibit is on display until Saturday, August 24.
Open Saturday from 2:00 to 6:00 or by appointment.

2889 Ford Street, third floor, Oakland


Lynn McGeever’s paintings from her Boundary Crossing series evolved from quick aerial watercolor sketches she drew from airplane windows while flying across the country. This body of work attempts to capture the beauty of man-made fields, roads and canals and the tension created when they intersect with the natural world of grasslands, woods and rivers.

Bruce Pizzichillo is showing paintings and glass sculpture, which have been influenced by jazz, dance, poetry, film and architecture.  Bruce works in glass, metal, wood, paint and found objects, incorporating new techniques and materials in his art with every new piece. This diversity opens him to a fuller expression of simple ideas. 

The photography of Elizabeth Williams seeks to freeze-frame that moment when we experience visual ambiguity, relying on conditioned perception to determine what we are seeing. Purposefully enigmatic, her images are intended to elicit and prolong a state of not knowing. Derived from urban environments, Elizabeth’s images are the result of serendipitous discoveries and capture the decisive moment beautifully.
