Today another cycle of my life came or perhaps will come full circle. Almost every Friday, I go to the Farmer's market in downtown Oakland. We usually stop at the Caffe 817 for a coffee. They show art by local artists there. I was looking at what was up at the moment and I liked the photography being shown enough to go up to the sign to see who was the photographer.
It turned out to be work by Pearl Jones-Tranter. The name rang a bell but no connection was made until I sat down back at the table with Tom then it hit me. She and Tom had been room-mates when I met him over 40 years ago!
The exhibition at Caffe 817 is a satellite show of the Digital Art Collective, which is connected with Berkeley City College’s multimedia department. The Social Justice-themed exhibit, Critical Voices, is at The Jerry Adams Gallery, 2050 Center Street in Berkeley
Talk about a blast from the past!
