FEATURING WORK BY

Voted Best of the Bay’s, “Best Place to Spend Eternity”, the Chapel of the Chimes is playing host to living artists with this first ever exhibition of visual art in the Julia Morgan designed chapel and columbarium in Oakland.

Most stories end with “happily ever after” — but the stories being told by artists in this show are using Ever After as a starting point. Poignancy, playfulness, and sharp insights into the nature of the Eternal are the common threads used to weave a series of site specific mini-installations through chapel niches. From the minimal to the Baroque, artists use these unique spaces to reflect upon notions of ritual, remembrance, loss and celebration with critical alacrity and humor.

There will be an evening of performance & sound works on Sunday, November 13th from 5-8pm–more on this later!
