April 11, 2015,
is Slow Art Day, an annual global event that aims to transform the act
of viewing art. On a single day each year, people all over the world are
encouraged to visit local museums and galleries to look at five pieces
of art for an hour. After the slow-viewing exercise, participants enjoy
lunch with the artists to talk about their experiences.
Join us at Gray Loft Gallery to view the current exhibit COMMON GROUND - a perfect show to experience on Slow Art Day - a group show of seven artists whose collective vision is unified by abstraction.
Details: Arrive by 11:15 and bring a bagged lunch, the gallery host will have dessert and beverages. Art viewing will be from 11:30 to 12:30, lunch will follow. A number of the artists in "Common Ground" will be joining us for lunch and conversation.
Check out Slow Art Day for more details about this annual event. You can also see photos from previous Slow Art Days on our Facebook page.
We hope you can join us for this inspiring experience.

About the Gray Loft Gallery Gray Loft 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 space.
