Eat Your Heart Out Valentine’s Day

Second Friday art walk coincides with lovers’ holiday

Alameda’s art scene bursts with new life each month during the Second Friday Art Walk when a series of island galleries open their doors to the public to display their latest shows. Studio 23 is one such gallery, tucked behind the old Alameda Lock & Glass at 2309B Encinal Ave.

Studio 23 will host a special event Friday, Feb. 14, when they invite artists and the general public to come by at 7 p.m. to hang out, sketch, mingle and enjoy light snacks and wine.

Artists presenting as part of the Eat Your HeART Out exhibition include El Gallo, Arianna Siegel, Cheryl Harawitz, Jeffrey Allyn, Bernadette Martinez, Mark Coleman, Jennifer King, Kristen Brown, Jessica Warren, Wesley E. Warren and more.

The Alameda Artists group meets each second Friday for an artists meet up at Studio 23.
