Alameda Gets Artsy


For the second year now, local gallery owners Wes and Jessica Warren of Studio 23 have organized an Alameda-based celebration of art and artists. The Summer Art Fair took place last Sunday outside Studio 23 near the intersection of Oak Street and Encinal Avenue. Visitors to the fair were treated to live art demonstrations, live music, food and drink and many other fun and creative activities. Children could create their own sculptures and paintings at particular booths while others featured open art studios and even a live printing press. Among the works on display were lifelike renderings of David Bowie, Prince and Muhammad Ali in chalk and acrylic. Also participating were Alameda-based art venues: the Rhythmix K Gallery, Redux Studios, Autobody Fine Arts, PopUp Gallery, Gary Francis Art, Artistic Home Studio, Starbaby, Alameda Art Associaton along with local eateries.
