Check gallery website for hours and additional info

November 10 – December 31

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

Transmission Gallery Oakland presents Painting Out of a Corner, a solo exhibition of M. Mark Bauer’s colorful, intricate and fantastical paintings.

​Contemplating the absurdities of our destructive interactions with environment and each other, Bauer deals with his trepidation through intricately detailed scenarios replete with multilayered meaning and complex characters. Up close, one can begin to truly take in the undulating patterns, beautifully blended color shifts,  wry humor and fascinating twists that make up Bauer’s painted worlds.  New details emerge with a second, third and fourth look, lending the work a sense of movement and energy.

John Kerpel ‘s Earth Gems will be showing in our small space gallery, concurrent with Bauer’s featured exhibition. Kerpel’s sense of design and fine craftsmanship together celebrate and elevate animal species as precious jewels. Both exhibitions have a strong connection to preserving the natural world and its myriad species.

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).
