Naomi Kamiya surrounded by art and patrons today in Berkeley.
This showed you were at the right place
Even Dudes and their skateboards liked it.
Immediate installation upon entering.
Work on the wall from Cal Berkeley Students
Well attended. Wine, strawberries, lemonade and brownies were offered. Yum.
Naomi is so much fun to talk to and has so many ideas.
And out on Solano Avenue just a little exhibit to show you where the gallery entrance is. There are many more events planned on Solano Avenue. It's a really cool place to hang out. See http://Leftcoastmini.blogspot.com/ for more details. Don't you agree galleries and dollhouses are a great match? CM
UPDATE My aol account was hacked today and I have changed Aol address. Everything else is the same.
New Update: My Leftcoastmini page has disappeared... must investigate. C
Here we are at Open Fine Art Gallery 1861 Solano Avenue A Berkeley, California 94707. Or call 510 917 9994. Check out that beautiful luxury model of the Louis Rich tudor on the right. Can anyone identify the house on the left?
Here is another unique doll house. The next picture shows the front. I have never seen a roof like that before.
And this is an installation of a rocket ship shaped structure.
That is Patrick Schmidt who manages the gallery with Naomi. You can find out more at www.thedollhousesco.com
Many local artists are represented.
Patrick works in clay and offers hands on classes.
Next Saturday is a special event, Sat. May 18th 4pm to 7pm. You're invited!
What a good idea, what a great space and I am looking forward to this new Doll House Gallery. Thanks Naomi and Patrick. CM
