Photography by Karyn Yandow:
Using nature as metaphor to explore human spirituality and
connectedness, Karyn weaves a common thread throughout her work that
reflects upon the poignant meditative beauty of spirituality, loss,
fragility and hope that reaches beyond the eyes and into the soul.

About the Gray Loft Gallery...
It's our 2nd birthday!Founded in 2012, the gallery has been referred to as a hidden gem in Jingletown and noted by Kenneth Baker,SF Chronicle,
in his Visual Arts Don’t Miss Column as “…a space gaining prominence in
the Bay Area…” The mission of the gallery is to provide exhibition
opportunities for artists in a setting that is an alternative to the
traditional gallery model. We hope to inspire, engage and celebrate
artists in our community and beyond. We acknowledge the achievements of
emerging, mid-career and established artists – with an emphasis on
those who live and work in the Bay Area, in a non-traditional art
We believe that Art is a wonderful vehicle for
communication, community building and inspiration. We want to encourage
the appreciation and interest in the arts by presenting work in a
non-exclusive, welcoming, professional and fun environment. We hope to
cultivate the belief that art is for everyone, and that art belongs in
our community at large, not just in traditional gallery and museum
The Gallery is a unique venue located on the 3rd
floor of one of Oakland’s oldest artists’ work/live warehouses in the
historic artist district Jingletown.
