Check gallery website for hours and additional info

November 10 – December 31

Opening Reception, Saturday, November 12th, 1-4pm

Transmission Gallery presents Jon Kerpel ‘s Earth Gems in our small space gallery.

Recognizing the vital importance of diversity of species as an indicator of the health of our natural world, Kerpel’s sense of design and fine craftsmanship celebrate and elevate animal species as precious jewels. Each occupies a special niche, surrounded by a myriad of wildlife silhouettes interspersed with elegant bead details. Universal symbols radiate a calming symmetry as supporting elements in Kerpel’s totemic pieces. 

Showing concurrently in our featured exhibition is Mark M.  Bauer: Painting Out of a Corner. Bauer’s colorful and surreal works also addresses the preciousness of our environment though perhaps with much more trepidation and pathos. 

​All are welcome to join us for the Opening Reception, Saturday, November 12th from 1-4 pm. See the work, greet the artists, enjoy the light refreshments out on our deck (weather permitting). The event is free and open to the public with free street parking nearby.

Transmission Gallery Oakland is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, noon to 5 pm and by appointment (Closed for Thanksgiving Break Nov 24/25, closing at 4pm on Dec 24th and 31st).
