Currently on Exhibit
Paintings by the members of the Oakland Art Association will be on view in the 2nd floor art gallery.
The Oakland Art Association is a non-profit group of roughly 55 members, several of whom have been active over most of its almost 60 years. The association is involved most in arranging show venues for its members in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties but also in support of specific art programs with-in the Oakland Unified Schools. Typically, they have about 10 juried shows each year, where members are invited to show original work which is competitively judged, and cash prizes are awarded.
During September the Association will have a show of paintings only at the Rockridge Library, a new show at the Oakland Chamber, and a third show at the Alameda County Law Library (125 12th St., Oakland).
Additionally, the Association sponsors a number of so called "Satellite" shows featuring the work of a single member artist. Currently two Satellite shows are being displayed; First Federal Saving Bank, 6058 College Ave, Oakland and at Piedmont Gardens, 110 41st Street, Oakland.
Membership in OAA costs $50 per year, and is open to all artists who would like to have their work shown in local venues. To learn more about OAA consult our website: www.oaklandart.org .
