Open on First Friday – M. Mark Bauer: Painting Out of a Corner

December 2 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Enjoy your First Friday Art Walk! Stop by on First Friday, December 2nd, noon to 8 pm. Check out our two concurrent exhibitions and more art in our Artist’s Showroom. Take a moment to stroll through GearBox Gallery downstairs. There’s a lot to see at 770 West Grand Ave. in Oakland. First Friday Art Walks are free and open to the public with free street parking nearby.

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.

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).
