The gallery will be open from 1:30 to 5:30

Join us for the Closing Reception for Figure. This is your last chance to surround yourself with great art, meet some of the artists in the show and revel in this celebration of figurative art.  Not to mention the opportunity to taste some award winning wines from Rock Wall Wine Company 

Check out Facebook for more examples of art in the show, installation and reception photos.

Figure, a group show that celebrates figurative art, includes ink drawings, paintings, watercolors, photography and mixed media abstractions of the figure.   “The use of line, symbolic color, and an abstracted compositional flat space, illuminate underlying culture and the human condition. Beyond portraiture, figurative paintings have sought to distill imagery to an abstract system which conveys elements of power, tension, and resolution.” ~ Jan Wurm

Celebrate the season and give ART!

Gray Loft Gallery - voted "Best Art Gallery" in the 2016 Oakland Magazine Award - has promoted the rich art culture of Jingletown and the greater Bay Area since 2012. The gallery has been referred to as a hidden gem in Jingletown, and noted by Kenneth Baker, former SF Chronicle Art Critic, 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. A number of artists began their art career at Gray Loft Gallery.

“I have always enjoyed this gallery, superb atmosphere and lighting. The polished and worn hardwood floors creek slightly in places as you climb to the third floor, providing a granular and unique, organic aesthetic. This is a do-not-miss venue in the East Bay.”  –  Facebook Review
