Some artists I did not get good (or at least adequate) pictures of last night, but who were in attendance: Heidi Cregge, David Seiler, Kelly Monson,  Jon Carling, Dan Nelson, Thomas Christopher Haag, Jack Eastgate and Aaron Petersen

Note from Obi

It feels like a family: the assembly,  this crew, this quilt of brilliant local art. We been doing this for years – different venues, different faces, sure, but  many of these artists I’ve been representing for years, and know better than I know certain legs of my own family. The result? a warm vibe, an accepting space, an invented family, a buzz that belies the alcohol stupor we all stumble around in looking for our pens and paper. We used to do it every week. Perhaps you remember – now, we will do it once a season. The above represents some snapshots I took with last night, at our Springtime event. Special thanks to Mua for housing this event. If you are an artist, living and working in Oakland and want to be part of this, all you need to do is be in my face and (of course) be serious about your art. email me at, coyoteandthunder@gmail.com.
