Each month, as many as 30,000 arts aficionados participate in the free Oakland First Fridays along Telegraph Avenue. Slate Contemporary Gallery joined the fun (along with Holland Partner Group and Oakland Art Murmur) in February with festivities at their Vespr pop-up show, located within a penthouse at the residential building. The exhibit, which ran through most of March, highlighted vibrant pieces evoking spring from a variety of artists, many from San Francisco and the East Bay.
