Latest Exhibit at Branch Gallery

If you find yourself in Uptown Oakland now thru August 7th stop in to Branch Gallery to check out the latest exhibit Everyday is Not the Same, featuring stunning minimalist works by local artists Hadley Williams and Pablo Manga.

Beyond the impeccable attention to detail, what also sets these works apart from traditional minimalist works is the fact that both artists are using unconventional materials. Pablo limits his material to industrial tapes and Hadley uses many kinds of materials including hang tags, tissue paper and correction tape.

This an exhibit worth checking out in person, images online do not do it justice.

The exhibit runs thru August 7th.

The gallery will be open late from 6-9pm for First Fridays July 2nd and August 6th.
regular gallery hours: Thurs- Friday 12=6pm, Saturday 12-4pm.

PLEASE NOTE: we will be closed Saturday July 3rd.
