The Compound Gallery 8th Anniversary 

When: Sat., May 7, 6-9 p.m. 2016
Price: Free
The Compound Gallery started in a dilapidated liquor store on San Pablo Avenue in 2008. In 2010, it moved to its current location in North Oakland (1167 65th St.). And in 2014 it expanded from one to two buildings, totaling 12,000-square-feet of gallery space and art studios serving seventy artists. On Friday, May 7, The Compound Gallery will be celebrating its eighth anniversary with a full night of technical demonstrations from some of its resident artists. The lineup of seven free workshops include laser-cutting, risograph, calligraphy and letterpress printing demos. Meanwhile, throughout the night, there will be an opening for the show Paper Pushers, held in the Main Gallery. The show features artists from across the country working in the mediums of letterpress, screen and block printing, and illustration. And in the Fabrefaction Gallery, there will be a reception for Birdsong is Not Made By Machines, a new solo show from Appalachian-born artist Jeremiah Jenkins, which will explore the intersection of natural evolution and technological innovation. You’ll likely want to arrive early in order to see it all.
