Please join us for a First Friday Art Walk event at The Crown
June 7th, 2019 | 5pm – 7pm
We’re honored to have the work of Michael Ryan in our space. His work addresses some of the topics that we are passionate about: Observing the world in fresh new ways, a reticence to classify the world in strict terms, and the mass produced plastic packaging that distorts the world we live in. Ryan addresses these issues by looking at these forms and the way they distort the space, and the information surrounding them – visually and metaphorically. These abstractions reveal hidden images, and even emerging languages..
Ryan’s process involved a mash-up of traditional oil painting techniques with printmaking strategies in an attempt to mesh the mechanical with the brushstrokes of human touch.
The Crown Gallery
The Crown seeks to give exposure to local and international artists through The Crown Gallery, and hosts new artists each quarter. The Crown Gallery is currently accepting submissions for the first quarter of 2020, and is seeking artists who approach issues related to environmental sustainability, intersectionality, the City of Oakland, and of course, coffee.
We cannot wait to host you at The Crown!
One of the special things about The Crown is that we are located in the heart of Uptown Oakland – a veritable paradise for coffee lovers & foodies alike. However, parking is limited in the area, and we highly encourage public transportation or ride sharing. For more information on visiting The Crown, please click here.
