Mercury 20 at 10 

The artist run gallery celebrates its tenth anniversary.

Mercury 20 at 10 In 2006, a handful of artists joined together to turn a small space in Uptown Oakland into an artist-run gallery. Since then, the collective’s membership and gallery space has grown into what is now Mercury 20 (475 25th St., Oakland). In celebration of its ten-year anniversary, the gallery is hosting Mercury 20 at 10, a group exhibit showcasing the collective’s many artists, including mesmerizing installation artist Nick Dong, masterful paper cutout artist Carlo Fantin, and innovative textile specialist Ruth Tabancay. The show is also a snapshot of the gallery at a critical moment in its evolution, during a time when the Uptown area is poised for another rapid transformation. While Mercury 20 consistently exhibits its members’ work, it’s rare that so many of them are shown together at once. Mercury 20 at 10 is a varied portrait of a tight-knit group of local talent.
