ReGeneration Residency at ArtVale Gallery


Regeneration has an embedded notion of loss. Loss of limb, loss of life, loss of deadweight.

In this residency, we will be considering the work of rebuilding our artistic practice as we reconstruct ourselves having lost something. Many of us have experienced loss in our community, in our perception of safety, in political decency, and in our personal economics as independent creators. With ReGeneration, we seek to recombine our efforts, to tackle our own challenges, and meet them with powerful force.

We invite you to participate in a residency program engaged in discussion about your work, our cultural climate, the history of art, social change, beneficial economies, and other various topics. Weekly discussions will address issues related to regeneration (and rejuvenation, reclamation, refinancing; etc.,) as they relate to art practice. 

Locally owned and operated, ArtVale Gallery is a community art practice and exhibition space dedicated to providing opportunities for creative expression and artistic appreciation.

ArtVale Gallery is run by Bay Area native and local artist Shoshana Zambryski-Stachel. Shoshana graduated from Berkeley High School and received her BFA in Photography from NYU's                    Tisch School of the Arts. Since returning to the Bay Area Shoshana has dedicated herself to a combination of fine art practice and community arts. ArtVale is the culmination and continuation of these focuses. At ArtVale Gallery (AVG) our goal is to make Art the Average; ART=AVG.

ArtVale Gallery is located on Champion Street in East Oakland's Dimond District just off the intersection of Fruitvale and MacArthur Avenues
