What we're about
Autobody Fine Art Gallery is the only contemporary art exhibition space in the city of Alameda and lies in close proximity to the thriving and eclectic Oakland/East Bay arts scene in Northern California. The Gallery space is the core element in an environment that also houses individual artists’ studios (http://www.autobodygalleryandstudios.com/artstudios.html) whose additional income streams allow Autobody Fine Art to do what it does best: showcasing exceptional, experimental and critical artwork.
We also support artists through workshops (http://www.autobodygalleryandstudios.com/artistresources.html) and professional development while engaging the population of Alameda by providing an inclusive environment in which to interact with artworks that frequently push the boundaries of material use, aesthetics and socio-political content.
If you’re looking to grow as an artist, need feedback, or are looking for a new direction, this might be your perfect opportunity. Whether you work with oils, acrylics, watercolors or pastels ... you are welcome to drop in and bring your paints and painting with you, or a blank canvas. The class is instructed but relaxed and self-paced, and we will assist you technically, conceptually and compositionally in every way. Dickson (the instructor) works with each artist individually and the class has all manner of feedback - from assignments, to conceptual discussions about your direction, to the particulars of the piece you are making.
Autobody Fine Art is a unique art and arts education organization dedicated to the support and exhibition of contemporary art produced by emerging and mid-career artists from the immediate San Francisco and East Bay area.
