The new popUp Gallery @ Autobody Fine Art in Alameda makes its debut with:
“STILL LIFE – A NEW POINT OF VIEW”
A new gallery joins the lively Alameda art scene with a gala opening reception Friday, July 6 from 6 to 9 PM.
popUp Gallery’s inaugural exhibit, “Still Life – A New Point of View”, features the work of 7 exceptional Bay Area artists who interpret the classic art of still life in fresh and unexpected ways ranging from mysterious to flamboyant. The exhibit includes a fascinating collection of paintings, drawings and photographs plus sculptures in glass and metal.
The new popUp Gallery at Autobody Fine Art, 1517 Park Street in Alameda, is a creative collaboration between Autobody’s Executive Director, Jacqueline Cooper, and popUp Gallery Directors, Gabriele Bungardt and Mi’Chelle Fredrick who believe in the importance of fostering creativity.
popUp Gallery’s mission is to provide free exhibition space for deserving artists who might otherwise remain anonymous. In exchange for this opportunity, artists who sell work through the gallery contribute 20% of the sales price to selected art-related non-profit organizations whose work benefits other Bay Area artists. Paying it forward in this way ensures that artists will have a place to share their work with the community and their creative voices will find an audience.
popUp Gallery invites you to join the artists – Sue Averell, Gabriele Bungardt, Ken Draizen, Mi’Chelle Fredrick, Dan Granett, Chris Tedesco and Elizabeth Zanzinger – at the gala opening reception on First Friday, July 6, 2012 from 6 to 9 PM.
