During Oakland Art Murmur's First Friday art walk
PhotoAlliance, founded in San Francisco in 2002, is gearing up for itís 14th year with a Pop Up Exhibition of Collector Prints and photography books. Now this is something many people donít know: PhotoAlliance has a treasure trove of 80 different images by many well-known photographers that you can purchase to support this non-profit. In early September there will be the chance to buy these at a 20% discount at Oakopolis (in conjunction with PHOTO Gallery) during their benefit to aid the future programming of PhotoAlliance. This is a great way to start or add to your collection with works by accomplished photographers. Your support makes all the difference to the growth, success and longevity of their public programs.

Also at Oakopolis in Oakland, a special collection of works by Ansel Adams, Jan Saudek, Bill Owens, Imogen Cunningham and others will be offered here for the first time. A significant inventory of first edition books from photographers Lewis Baltz, Larry Sultan, Chris McCaw, Todd Hido, and others, from the Stephen Wirtz Gallery will also be for sale to benefit PhotoAlliance. The books will sell from $50 to $1000. Many are collectible and are out of print.

This is not to be missed. Itís rare to see so much great work on the walls and on sale! This will help realize the fall lecture series for PhotoAlliance. They will kick off the season with Richard Misrach on Friday, September 16th at 7:30pm at the San Francisco Art Institute, so mark your calendars!
