1. Preview: “Carpe Diem” Group Show at Loakal

    by Elizabeth MaskaskyPosted on April 2, 2014

    Last weekend, an eclectic group of 19 Bay Area artists convened at Oakland’s Loakal Art Gallery for an epic, 24-hour live painting show that commenced at 8 a.m. on Saturday and wrapped up the following Sunday morning. Each artist was given a 4’ by 8’ panel and, in the spirit of the show’s title, “Carpe Diem,” asked to “seize the day” by spending the next 24 hours engaging with the community through live art-making.

    The subject matter and artistic styles vary widely between the pieces, as each artist chose to take the theme in their own direction. The line-up is packed with local street art heavy-hitters, including Eddie Colla, Jet Martinez, Nite Owl, and Zoltron. At the same time, there are a number of artists, including Brett Armory, Jessica Hess, Max Kauffman, and John Wentz, who are more known for their painterly, expressionistic works on canvas and paper. The show’s opening reception will take place this Friday, April 4, from 6 to 10 p.m., and will be another great opportunity to meet the artists, as many will be in attendance.
