The Classic Cars West gallery displays bi-monthly exhibits featuring local artists. Our goal is to provide an innovative forum for contemporary art, presenting work by largely unseen young artists who live in Oakland and the Bay Area, whose work has been rarely or never exhibited. Our museum-esque space has hosted all forms ranging from sculpture, to paintings, to large scale installations and performance art.
Classic Cars West presents Other Places, a two person exhibition featuring the work of Oakland-based artists Bakula and Madeleine Tonzi.
Other Places explores concepts of place and the boundaries within. Through an imaginative geographic visual language, the paintings of the two join in a dialogue of what it means to carry our past into the future, expressing a sense of nostalgia, euphoria, wonderment, and inquiry for the environments we traverse.
Collaboratively, their paintings conjure an uncanny essence, something otherworldly yet strangely familiar.
