Art Murmur Time!

I know it’s raining outside and you might be tempted to stay inside – but that would mean missing out on some fantastic Art Openings tonight. We’re lucky to live right in the heart of the Art Murmur happenings, which means we don’t have to travel far.

Here are some shows to check out:

The Red Door Gallery and Collective, 6 to 10pm
Death is Easy; Comedy is Hard – Funny art & performances
416 26th St. (between Broadway and Telegraph)

Rock Paper Scissors Collective, 6 to 9pm
4th Annual Youth Exhibition, Inward to Outward, A Young Artists Exhibition
2278 Telegraph Ave. & 23rd (by Mama Buzz Café and a host of other cool galleries)

21 Grand, 7 to 11pm
9th Annual Benefit Art Sale

"Over 100 works by more than eighty artists in a wide range of types - from dvd's to oil paintings - mostly in an appropriate scale for the apartment-dwelling Bay Area population - with that "affordable price range" to match. Proceeds from the sale provide desperately needed funds to help keep our doors open." The sale continues Saturday, May 2nd and Sunday May 3rd from 2-6pm.

And some new work at Oakopolis as well, in addition to the group exhibition Earth Days that opened last Art Murmur. Check it out if you haven’t had a chance, the show closes May 16th.
447 25th Street – between Broadway & Telegraph by 21 Grand.
