Gray Loft Gallery presents The America That I Love

Join us for The America That I Love
an afternoon of music, poetry and performance 
on Saturday, April 29, 3:00 pm
The performance has been created by Minoo Hamzavi,
renowned Bay Area performance artist.

On view in the gallery is Tangible Abstractions,
a group painting show featuring the work of
Jo Ann Biagini, Betsy Kellas, Mary Ann Leff,

The collective vision that unites these five Bay Area artists is the relationship of shape, rich evocative color, saturated surfaces, markings and sense of scale in this collection of mixed media and oil/acrylic pieces.

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 for 5 years. 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

Hours: Saturdays 1:00 to 5:00
Sundays by appointment  (call or
