May is Oakland Art Month–31 days of events, performances and exhibitions meant to spotlight the city’s rich diversity of artistic talent.

And Temescal Works is taking part.

All month long, and through the first week of June, our co-working space will double as a pop-up gallery for a botanical-themed exhibition. Presented by Temescal Artis Community, a local organization that creates arts-focused educational and networking events, the exhibition features paintings, sculptures, photography and other pieces by 14 Oakland artists.

On May 3, as part of First Friday celebrations, we’ll be holding an opening reception from 6 p.m.-9 p.m.

We will also welcome participants in the Temescal Art Walk on May 18, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

A closing reception will be held on June 9, from noon-5 p.m.
