Grand Opening Reception – Alameda Artists Group Show September 13

August 23, 2013 in Events, General

Studio 23 Gallery opens in Alameda


We are excited to announce that Studio 23 Gallery officially opens its doors to the public on Friday September 13th, 2013, at 7:30 PM during the Second Friday Alameda Art Crawl.


Studio 23 acts as a studio and workshop during the day for artists and owners, Jessica and Wesley E. Warren.  Once a month the Studio is open to the public and will feature work by local bay area artists.


“Ideally, we want Studio 23 to provide a place for artists to conspire and inspire each other, as well as finding innovative ways to give back to the community. We offer workshops as well as creative events designed to nurture and promote local talent.”

Jessica Warren

Artists and Co-Founder or Alameda Artist Group and Studio 23.


The gallery’s mission is to support local artists; those that are already established and emerging artists new on the scene.  The gallery will focus on unique, contemporary, experimental, and modern visual art as well as classic techniques with a fresh perspective.


The Alameda Artists Group, a Bay Area artist collective with over 80 members, regularly meet at Studio 23 for workshops and sketching groups. ( Most of the work on display will consist of work created by members of Alameda Artists Group.


Many artists in the collective paint with traditional medium such as acrylic, oil and watercolor, but we also have artists that paint with coffee, house paint, spray paint and other non-traditional medium.


You may have seen the giant metal robot sculpture installation “Friendly Lord Zondar”, by artist Wesley Warren,  featured on the roof of Studio 23 during the month of July. He was created with recycled metal and mechanical parts sourced from local scrap yards. If you missed it, don’t worry, he will be making an appearance at the Grand Opening.


Studio 23 is hidden behind the old Alameda Lock and Glass building at 2309 B Encinal Ave. Just off Park St., between Oak and Alameda Ave. Regular gallery hours are second Fridays between 7:30 PM and 10:30 PM and for special events.



Grand Opening Artists Reception and Party

Friday September 13th, 2013

Show Me The City: Artists Renditions of the Bay Area.


Local artists show you their city with works inspired from all over the Bay Area. Psychedelic videos projected on the wall and accompanied with electronically synthesized music, giant robot sculptures and flowing wine fountains are just a few of the exhibits on display at the upcoming show, as well as many original paintings, drawings and lino cuts.


The Grand Opening, “Show Me The City”, includes exterior, interior and abstract works, showcasing a variety of styles and techniques.  Studio 23 creates a sensual environment for all art enthusiasts and critics alike by encouraging productions that are sharp and edgy.


The artists inspirations and creations are limitless, a sketch at a coffee shop, a photograph of a fence, a painting of a lamp post, or a watercolor of a street scene.


The opening reception starts at 7:30 PM and runs until 11 PM, Friday September 13th, 2013. This is a great time to visit Alameda Art Galleries and there will be several shows opening on this same evening.

It could be a sketch of a person in a coffee shop, a photo of a fence, a painting of a lamp post, or a watercolor of landscape or street scene.

Art and Living

May 4, 2013 in Cheryl Harawitz

Painting and drawing helps me slow down enough to capture the beauty of temporary moments, helping me feel connected with everything living. When I spend time with others making and viewing art, I discover new ways of seeing. When I am alone making art, little explosions of insight happen spontaneously. Sometimes I like what I produce, and sometimes I don’t. But I always feel that engaging in art is time well spent.
