Oaklandish x Swarm Gallery
SHOP/SHOW is the title of latest exhibition at Swarm Gallery in Oakland's growing Jack London District. Featuring a long list of local artists, SHOP/SHOW is a curated "pop-up shop" as well as a gallery showing. Inspired by old photos of outdoor fruit markets, we screen-printed, by hand, wood grain and brick patterns on sheets of cardboard to create a truly unique satellite store. Available for sale are many of our popular shirt designs and hoodies.
Along with our own Oaklandish designs we collaborated with some artists from the show to create a series of limited edition "art t's".
Many of these one of a kind shirts were sold at the opening reception Dec. 11th, but don't fret, The show will remain open until Jan. 24th giving you plenty of time to secure yourself one (or two, or three) of these pieces.
Head down to the gallery and take a moment to enjoy some of the fabulous artwork, locally published zines and prints, and get to know some of the super-talented local artists that make Oakland a great place for art and creativity.
