The Compound Gallery & Studios
Friday afternoon I test walked the route for the upcoming Oakland Urban Paths walk in the Golden Gate district in North Oakland. On Saturday, July 12, we'll be exploring the Golden Gate district with artist and historian Sue Mark, who has lined up a number of great speakers. Sue and I walked past The Compound Gallery and Studios, where co-founder Matt Reynoso gave us a tour of the gallery and studios.
The Compound Gallery is expanding, and doing an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for it. They'll be moving the wood and metal shops, and making a larger area for creating pottery, as well as adding new studios. There are some interesting donation perks, so check it out.
Next time you're in North Oakland on a Wednesday through Sunday, check out the latest show at The Compound Gallery. It's a short walk from Actual Cafe and Victory Burger, a couple of great local options for a bite to eat.
