Love, Lust, and Heartbreak

Love, Lust, and Heartbreak,

Photographic artist Gabrielle Gianella and her muse, Fernando, will be featured among the contestant winners displayed celebrating the Valentine’s Day theme, Love, Lust, and Heartbreak. The main artist reception was held along with the monthly First Friday Open Arts showing at the Gallery Behind the Blue Door from 6pm to 9pm. The events were the brainchild of the gallery owner, jewelry artist Nan Gray. Missing the Open Art’s First Friday artist reception doesn’t mean the art cannot be viewed. Additional showings can be arranged by calling the gallery at (510) 395-1139. The gallery is located on the south side of the Rosenblum Winery building, next to the Alameda Ferry Dock.

Across the gravel parking lot is Hello Wines, a new business in the large blue building. These two businesses are now working together to bring a larger location wine bar and more fun to special events in this area. Hello Wines is open for free wine tasting until 8pm. In addition, many of the pieces from the Love, Lust, and Heartbreak photographic art exhibit will remain at Hello Wines through February. Hello Wines is open daily from 11 am-8pm. They are located at 2900 Main Street in Alameda, (510) 522-5700.
