    G on Mar 31, 2013.

  • Onyx (Bay Area Black Professionals)

     I got there a little late. The space was harder to find and a much smaller venue than I expected, but I enjoyed the art. I did not attend the "after" festivities and there seemed to be a lot of confusion about where to meet, from the several email messages I received after the art show. Organizers of such events might want to check their additional after-party venues for business hours, etc prior to the event date.
