A round table discussion of Oakland artists occurred recently at the library with near 20 artists in attendance. Efforts are now underway to plan art and photography events, as well as to encourage local businesses to participate in promoting the arts in Oakland.
The diversity of painters, photographers, musicians, filmmakers and writers at the initial meeting was a real inspiration, and the next meeting should result in detailed plans.
Already in the works are plans for the Oakland Farmers Market to be featuring local crafters and local musicians. Plans are also in the works for the SAO to sponsor arts programs for Oakland youth this autumn.
