We are delighted to be participating in Slow Art Day again this year. Join us on Saturday, April 12! We still have a few spaces left, so sign up! Art viewing: 11:00 to 12:30 Lunch and informal discussion: 12:30 to 1:30
About Slow Art Day: One day each year – April 12 in 2014 – people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at five works of art for 10 minutes each and then meet together over lunch to talk about their experience. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing.
If you would like to participate at the Gray Loft Gallery to contemplate the Flora and Form Exhibit, please sign up on the Slow Art Day website and choose our gallery in Oakland.
Bring a bagged lunch, we will provide dessert. Artists will be present
to talk informally about their work in the "Flora and Form" exhibit.

About the Gray Loft Gallery...
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.
