First Friday Art Walk Oakland! Jan 03

  • Jan 3, 2014 · 4:30 PM

First Friday Art Walk Oakland is today! This is going to be an exciting look at the art market. I'm updating this meetup to meet at 5:30PM instead of 4:30PM.

Meetup location has been changed to the BETTI ONO GALLERY which is closer to BART and more easily accessible.

Address: 1427 Broadway 
Oakland, CA 94612

Call or text Graham when you get there at [masked]

See you all at 5:30PM!


Oakland First Fridays is an immersive art and community experience that happens on the first Friday of each month on Telegraph Avenue from West Grand to 27th Street.

Interested in displaying photographs in galleries? This is a great opportunity to see what's selling, what's not working and how to get into the scene. 

Every First Friday, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Oakland's KONO district springs to life with for this event, with galleries, artist collectives, street artists, local culinary artisans, performers, musicians, dancers, DJ’s, and poets gathering for Oakland First Friday events.

Every month 10,000 (and often up to 20,000) people come from across the Bay Area and beyond to experience a variety of art, be inspired, eat great food, enjoy live music, and stroll through the amazing, eclectic city of Oakland.

    An interesting look at what was selling, what was not selling and what the galleries are expecting in terms if quality of work.

    - 85% painting, 5% knit dolls and 10% photographic art, with a few straight photographers mainly candid street B&W
    - Most of the photographic art was loose prints or framed in standard frames without edition numbers, even if they were part of editions
    - I saw three sold photographs out of all the galleries
    - Most of the work that was selling was paintings around 16x24 for price points under $400
    - $135 seemed to be the most effective price at this art walk
    - Plexiglass mounted to dibond backing at PHOTO was the best mounting and quality I saw, but they were not on the wall, priced or displayed in such a way to sell
