Oakland, California

Nine Bay Area Artists will transform the Uptown Body and Fender shop in Oakland’s Northgate neighborhood into an energetic painting exhibition entitled “ROAD TRIP.” Fueled by the do-it-yourself attitude that has become the signature of Oakland’s expanding arts renaissance, this event explores the creative paths embarked upon by the individual artists and reflects the passionate spirit of their cohesive group.

This multigenerational and multicultural ensemble of eight women and one man is populated with lawyers, designers, architects, gamers, therapists, currency traders, and activists turned artists.The show will feature original paintings from Lorrie Fink, Sarah Gopher, Judy Levit, Jane Norling, Suzanne Onodera, Tracy Rocca, Michael Sacramento, Becca Shortle, and Amanda Williams. Having exhibited widely as individuals, the artists have teamed up for the first time in this format, launching “Road Trip” at Uptown Body and Fender in Oakland.
