Downtown Berkeley's Art House Gallery & Cultural Center mixes art with purpose. In addition to art exhibits, the space also hosts benefit events.
Inside this Aveda salon, where one can get a haircut or eyebrow tint, customers can enjoy the gallery's displays of local artists. In addition to solo shows, the gallery has a revolving collection of pieces, which are generally available for purchase.
With 20-foot ceilings and an open layout, this spacious gallery is perfect for viewing large sculptures.
This club, modeled after an Eastern European wooden synagogue, is a Berkeley institution dedicated to dance and music. The non-profit venue hosts live music nearly every night, and shows are all-ages. Ashkenaz hosts reggae, bluegrass, Balkan, Brazillian, Cajun, and Caribbean bands, just to name a few. Come early for a dance class or on Sunday afternoon for a kid’s concert.
Ongoing exhibitions include "In a New Light," more than 2,500 works from the museum's collection.
The East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation's gallery aims to build cultural bridges between communities through exhibitions exploring topics like race relations, colonialism, war, and the urban experience.
The studio provides art instruction for the public and discounted classes for students in knitting, digital imaging, printmaking, video, and more.
