Best New Art Walk 

Golden Gate Gallery District

The galleries along San Pablo Avenue that have participated in First Friday for several years have not exactly seceded, Texas-style, from that event; instead, they've opened a new front, or art district, named after the traditional moniker for the triangle where Oakland, Berkeley, and Emeryville converge. Blankspace and the Compound Gallery on San Pablo are already familiar to Generation X and Y boulevardiers; somewhat less so, undeservedly, are the nearby Periscope Cellars, Forthrite Printing, and John F. Kennedy University art gallery. All will be open First Fridays from 6 to 9 p.m. Adding new luster to the area is Kala Institute's brand-new 2,000-square-foot gallery on the ground floor of the old Heinz factory, just downstairs from JFKU; scheduled events include artist talks and Thank God It's Thursday wine-and-art nights. Pick up postcards with addresses and hours at any of the participating venues.
