About Kala Art Institute

Kala Art Institute encourages artistic experimentation. It was founded in 1974 by Archana Horsting and Yuzo Nakano as an international residency program rooted in the local community and a forum for ideas. Over four decades, it has progressed from a garage studio with one etching press and a single hot plate to a 15,200 sq. ft. facility in the historic West Berkeley Heinz building. Kala has grown steadily in the breath of its offerings and in the size of its operation. It remains true to its mission to be a workshop of ideas and engage the community through exhibitions, education, and public programs.

Creatures: Real and Imagined – Call for Artists

uBe Art announces a call for artists for Creatures: Real and Imagined.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 5 Jan 2017

I have known such a creature. – Charles Altamont Doyle

Creatures: Real and Imagined explores the ways in which animals and creatures have been a presence in the visual art as metaphors, objects of fantasy and fear, sources of emotional attachment, and connection to the physical and non-physical realms.

Due to the popularity and success of this exhibition in 2016, we are bringing it back for another tour—showing the spectrum of ways in which creatures are conjured, immortalized, and depicted in the minds of artists.

​Our mixed genre format and diverse jury panel create a genuine opportunity for all artists who enter to be invited for exhibition.

Artists will retain 60% of sales.

Artwork selected for the Creatures: Real and Imagined show will be on display in a seven week exhibition at uBe Art in the B-Side Hood of Berkeley, California—located 12 miles east of San Francisco. The gallery is a beautiful, light-filled space with 25 ft ceilings attracting artists, visitors, and collectors from around the Bay Area.

Creatures: Real and Imagined

uBe Art was conceived with an emphasis on accessibly priced, emerging art designed to build relationships with a broad clientele.

In a culture where traditional galleries tend to intimidate art newbies, uBe Art dissolves that gap bringing art and people of all walks and ages together in a space that encourages all to engage with, get cozy with, create, and appreciate art.

Delivering rotating exhibitions, creative workshops for all ages, and expert led home transformation workshops, uBe Art is hitting all the marks and growing to encompass more.

Perfectly nestled in the busting B-Side Hood of Berkeley, uBe Art is surrounded by a cluster of shops and restaurants with live music and events making the block a great destination spot.

MyScape: Landscapes, Cityscapes, Interiorscapes

uBe Art announces a call for artists for MyScape: Landscapes, Cityscapes, Interiorscapes.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 3 Oct 2016

The goal of landscape painting for me is to capture those aspects of the scene that move me and then try to communicate that to the viewer. By eliminating what doesn’t appeal and enhancing that which does, one produces ‘art.’ – unknown

A space, moment, scene, or memory, scape art shares something intimate whether it be a soulful connection with nature, an edgy moment within the folds of a towering city, the quiet corner of your room, or any of the vast visions that surround you. Your environment elicits a response that you feel compelled to share.

uBe Art wants to see and share these spaces and moments that call to you. This show is devoted to landscapes, cityscapes, and interiorscapes.

Artist will retain 60% of sales.

Artwork selected for the MyScape: Landscapes, Cityscapes, Interiorscapes show will be on display in a seven week exhibition at uBe Art in the B-Side Hood of Berkeley, California—located 12 miles east of San Francisco. The gallery is a beautiful, light-filled space with 25 ft ceilings attracting artists, visitors, and collectors from around the Bay Area.
