Group Show in the East Bay Express

From the East Bay Express

At more than 8,000 square feet of studio space, The Compound Gallery and Studios (1167 65th St., Oakland) is home base to more than a dozen artists, and a resource to many more. This September, the gallery space will present an interdisciplinary group show celebrating the recent work of its artists, and at the September 1 opening, visitors will have the opportunity to tour more than twenty studios and receive demonstrations in letterpress, printmaking, and ceramics. Make sure to return in November for a solo exhibition of work by Jeanne Lorenz, featuring an impressive installation in paint that merges late-Seventies rock albums and Kabbalistic mysticism — surely a propitious pairing. Compound Group Show 2012 runs September 1-31; Jeanne Lorenz runs from November 10 through December 16 at The Compound Gallery and Studios. 510-601-1702 or
