we smell must be First Friday!!

The first weekend of the month always gets off to an artistic start and this Friday is no exception!  There is art everywhere this evening and to make it easier for you to explore tonight we have put together a list of some shows that caught our imaginative eye.

The Home Show

FiveTen Studio and artists Linda Braz and Elyse Hochstadt present The Home Show, an exhibition featuring six Bay Area based artists working with the concept of ‘home’ defined by its origins in a historical and contemporary context.  The Home Show explores and expands the well-worn definitions that suggest a singular space or construct could identify one ideal designation equating the concept of home. Two of the participating artists explore origin myths and the psychological site of home, while others present vivid representations through a range of media.

When:  Tonight May 1st   6pm - 9pm
Where: Five Ten Studio 831 broadway, oakland
