Jingletown's Open Studios June 5, 6 & 12, 13 2010

It's time again for Open Studios in Jingletown - the East Bay's coolest art's community. Located on the Oakland Riviera, off of 880 between the Park Street and Fruitvale Bridges, Jingletown is a homey little community with a lively art scene. This June over 25 artists will be showing everything from jewelry and photography to painting and mosaics. Come for the art, stroll around to see even more art! The streets are positively littered with mosaic murals. Stop in at the 4:20 Gallery where I will be showing these new pieces. They are a departure for me in that I am experimenting with mixing the strict lay patterns of hard tile with the more intuitive flow of glass.

Institute of Mosaic Art Changes Hands

So IMA has been sold.
I wish the new owner all the best to create IMA to be a place of
beauty, peace and light, where all people will be treated
with respect and dignity.
We look forward with hope to see IMA become a
good neighbor, not only in Jingletown
but in the larger Northern California mosaic community.
