The call for applications is open now for the show that brings together 48 photographers over 48 hours shooting in 48 different sections of Alameda. The deadline to apply is Sunday, Jan. 22. The juried competition will feature artwork using photo-based media and techniques that can earn awards in multiple categories.
A unique show of mixed media work by clients of Oakland’s Clausen House are now on display in the Signature Gallery of the Frank Bette Center for the Arts (FBCA). The show continues through March 2. Founded in 1967, Clausen House aims to help adults with developmental disabilities gain competency, develop relationships and join the community with increasing command over their own lives. The organization builds life skills through art, nutrition, health, money management and information technology classes. Art is an important component of the adult education program at Clausen House.
