A short hop from Oakland's popular Uptown, Transmission Gallery is home to some of the most interesting and creative California women artists working today. Right now they are featuring Maija Peeples-Bright, the last person standing of the California Funk Movement. Reminiscent of potter Beatrice Wood, Peeples-Bright, is as colorful as one of her art works, which are populated by wildly colorful "primitive" animals she calls "beasties". Check the Gallery for hours. Only drawback is that they are upstairs and there is no elevator in the building.
