The Crucible’s new gallery in Oakland’s historic Cathedral Building, at the triangle between Broadway and Telegraph Avenues, announces it’s second exhibition. “eARTh” celebrates art created from elements directly derived from the earth: glass, clay, stone and plaster. Featuring works of art by Crucible faculty and students, and selected Bay Area artists, this exhibition illustrates the visions of talented artists and showcases many of the skills taught at The Crucible.
An opening reception will be held Friday, November 6th, 6-9PM. Exhibiting artists, including Janet Hiebert, Richard Friedman, Warren Warren, Tachina Rudman, Billy Hiebert, and others will be there to share insights about transforming earthly elements into works of art.
For ten years, The Crucible has provided the Bay Area with space and resources for unique learning and collaborative experiences, and has produced some of the most stunning theatrical events seen in the Bay Area. The Crucible promotes creative expression, reuse of materials, and innovative design while serving as an accessible and highly visible arts venue for the general public. And now, they’re making art even more accessible to visitors and denizens of Oakland’s Uptown area.
As the revitalization of the Uptown area draws more and more people to explore new restaurants, shops and events in this neighborhood, The Crucible’s Cathedral Gallery provides a compelling and welcoming site for visitors and those working in downtown Oakland. Great art is visible from the street and sidewalk through windows on three sides of the gallery 24/7 and for closer browsing during gallery hours.
