Friday/Saturday Events Within-The-Point


Live Music TONIGHT @ Lobot Gallery
Tune-Yards, Quinn, Eleanor Murray & Invisible River

DARK ROMANTIC a sequence of new works

LoBot Gallery 1800 Campbell Street, Oakland Directions
Saturday, September 26th @ 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Fusing principles of art jewelry and up-cycling, Erika culls readymade materials such as plastic zip ties and reclaimed utilitarian articles to meticulously craft desirable, wearable adornment. At the same time, these sculptural works offer symbolic, often humorous narratives about shame and longing in the vein of the Dark Romantics of literature. Worn on the body or hung from a cross-beam, an ominous visual weight tethers these fabulous, featherlike objects.

My favorite quote: Terry played by Marlon Brando lay badly beaten by Johnny Friendly who is played by Lee J. Cobb and his goons…

Terry: Get me on my feet.
