East Bay Open Studios

Creativity’s all over the place this weekend as artists throughout the region open their doors for the East Bay Open Studios. With over 400 artists to choose from, it can be a little difficult to decide where to go. Well in our *ahem* completely unbiased opinion, a couple of spots not to miss include our friends over in the Jingletown arts district and the continuing exhibition over at Swarm Gallery.

The Jingletown district is presenting over 20 artists, repping everything from photography to mosaics, including work from Oakbook photo contest finalist Russ Osterweil), while Swarm’s current installations, “Improvised Territory” and “Picket Fencing” both offer a slightly skewed look at homescapes, unknown territories and suburbia. Oooh, suburban art in Oakland.-Kwan
