Richmond artists are producing a national fine arts exhibition at the Marin Society of Artists in San Rafael that opens Jan. 10.
Richmond residents Gail Morrison and Betsy Kellas are putting on the exhibition in honor of the the United Nations’ desig­nation of 2019 the Interna­tional Year of the Periodic Table of the Chemical Ele­ments.
Called ELEMENTS, the San Rafael exhibition in­vites artists to interpret the theme of Elements in what­ever way brings it to life for them, “from alchemy to particle physics to wacky whimsy, an Element’s mystique, mythology, dis­covery, uses throughout history, use in art, the mag­ical areas between the par­ticles of the atoms, philo­sophical or mystical flights of fancy,” organizers said.
The exhibition contin­ues through Feb. 2 at the Marin Society of Artists, 1515 Third St. in San Ra­fael. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sun­day, noon to 4 p.m. An opening reception for the artists is set for Friday, Jan. 11 — held in conjunction with the San Rafael 2nd Friday Art Walk.
“Each artwork will be accompanied by a label explaining its connection to the theme,” organizers said.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
