popUp Gallery will exhibit works on the theme of “Abundance”
Evelyn Kennedy, Alameda, Real Estate, Alameda, CA (Gallagher & Lindsey, Alameda, California)

 

popUp Gallery will exhibit works on the theme of “Abundance”

 

popUp Gallery will exhibit works on the theme of “Abundance” on Friday, November 8, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  The works include a scene of adventures with donuts, wonderful pastries and microscopic organisms.  According to the curators of the show, “there are also reminders of our throwaway mentality, maps that chart the global vastness of self-indulgence and haunting reminders of those who do not share in the wealth - those for whom abundance is just a dream and hunger is their reality.  These artists pose questions about how - and, perhaps more importantly, by whom - "abundance" is defined.”  Sounds like a thought provoking show.  The popUp Gallery is at 1517 Park Street in Alameda.

Features artists include Gabriele Bungardt, Mi’ChelleFredrick, Eric Joyner, Michael Kerbow, Hap Leonard and Michelle Mansour.

 

It has been said that power and wealth desensitize people other’s pain.  Bungardt explores the that idea in the art she is showing.

 

Fredrick uses a combination of colored pencil and watercolor to give her paintings a delicate and ethereal quality

mi'chelle Fredrick painting from her website

 

Joyner lush paintings are the “essence of abundance” with the playful robots and their nemesis giant delicious looking donuts.

 

Kerbow paintings and sculptures called Topography resents imagery that encourages us to question our actions and consider the impact that our personal choices may have on the world around us.”

 

Leonard paintings of cast off furniture and other items are his expression of our throwaway mentality.

 

hap leonard painting from his website

 

Mansour says of the painting she is displaying that“The tensions between the scientific & the spiritual, the corporeal & the ethereal are what drive the work.”

A Christmas Story at the Alameda Theatre

A Christmas Story at the Alameda Theatre

Ralphie with Santa photo from A Christmas Story movie


I don’t know about you, but “A Christmas Story” has become my favorite Christmas movie.  I love that it takes place in the 40’s when things seemed so much simpler.  I love the leg lamp and the “triple dog” dare bravado of the kids.  



Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story


I am sure everyone has seen the movie, but have you seen it on the big screen.  The Alameda Theatre is presenting their classic movie series and the movie is set to be show on Tuesday and Wednesday, December 4 and 5 is a Christmas Story at 5:00 and 7:00 pm on Tuesday and 2:50, 5:00 and 7:00 pm on Wednesday.  I have my ticket and anxiously waiting for Wednesday, when I will be seeing the 2:50 pm show.

 

A Christmas story still of Ralphie in bunny suitI recently read an interview about Peter Billingsley, who played Ralphie, the kid who wanted a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas, in the movie. Billingsley, who is now 41, said he still watches the movie at least once during the holidays.  He also said he still ha
s the BB gun, the cowboy outfit and the bunny suit from the movie.  He is now working on a musical stage production of the movie.



Alameda is a lovely community with good schools, pristine sand beaches, an historic movie theater, great stores, coffee shops and restaurants.
