Report: Swee(t)Art opens!
A Beautiful evening in April. Oakland showed up, ready to appreciate and recognize an amazing amount of work, now manifest at the Compound’s new place on 65th. I got my little corner room and am launching a year long campaign of new shows of Drawing and nothing but Drawing. Swee(t)Art opens again with a show of drawings by sculptors entitled Protoform. The reception last night was held in conjunction with the opening of the Compound Gallery, Professor Squirrel and the Artist Gallery.

I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to use this space and I promise to deliver shows that engage the art community with critical themetic issues and interestig presentations. Do you draw? Contact me. I am always hunting for new artists. I know, I know, artists are everywhere here in the East Bay, but I just can’t get enough.
Matt Reynoso and Lena Verderano Reynoso are the owners of the Compound. Their driving, positive energy has lead to this, a community of artists thriving in a once whithering and now fecund neighborhood in West Oakland. Here they are approaching their gallery for its first opening, the heavy lifting is all done, time for the reception.
