Indie Biz of the Week

Sorry for missing last is this weeks Indie Biz of the week along with what is coming up at Blankspace..and make sure to come by for our next reception on March 21st 7-10pm, when we will also be celebrating our 3 year anniversary....


Issues is located right off of Piedmont Ave. In Oakland. This little shop must carry at least 1000 magazines, newspapers, zines, records and more.

I have always found what I was looking for here. I am a sucker for magazines about modern living, modular living, basically anything to do with modernist living (my dream). They have so many good mags to choose from, it makes it hard to take home just one at a time. Good stuff, check it out...

Renée Gertler utilizes a domestic environment to explore the complex -and often strange and otherworldly - ideas that explain the workings of the known universe. Outer space, black holes and the magnitude of nothingness are points of singularity encompassed in her newest mixed
media installation within the confines of Blankspace.

Jessica Dacher
Remember Me Forever

To kick-off the celebration of our 3rd year, we have started a Blankspace gallery store artist showcase that will feature a solo exhibit of an artist within the gallery store walls. Our current exhibit is with artist Jessica Dacher.

Dacher has created a mixed media wall installation titled Remember Me Forever.

For this site-specific piece Dacher combines her skills, utilizing paint, metal, tilework and more to create a largescale, lushly colored, pop imagery.

Please join us for receptions and events occurring jointly with the main gallery artist.

more info on the artist can be found on her website
