Pen to Page: Journaling On Purpose

Feb 14th and ongoing on 2nd Thursdays

Join us for an evening of journaling in the company of others doing the same. This is a surprisingly comforting and reassuring situation, and we invite you along for the experience.

Newbies and life-long journalers welcome. Alameda writer, Bronwyn Emery will be on hand to guide those who want it with prompts, direction, and a little structure. Or, you can pop the earbuds in, tune out, and luxuriate in some alone time with your thoughts and your journal.

Location: Julie’s Alameda

Linda Kramer has been creating large-scale images utilizing a vintage square format camera and Kodak film ever since graduating from San Francisco State University in 1989, with a Bachelors Degree in Art/Photography.

“From the honest exchange I have with my subjects, to the final framed image, I’m highly engaged with the entire process,” Kramer says.

Her work has been published in American Photo Magazine, and images from her American Carnival Portraits series are currently included in the Permanent Collection at the San Jose Museum of Art.

Opening party is Friday, March 8 from 7 – 9 PM, with drink specials aplenty. The show will run through Sunday, May 5.
