Visual and performance artist Victor will be performing and showing his final show next 2nd Friday, April 12th at Studio 23 in his show Transference. RSVP

Join us at 8:00PM to get a 2nd chance to see this intimate and moving performance. Each show changes slightly so you won’t see the same thing twice. Victor is lead to communicate with his audience by an inner intuitive guide along with energy he picks up from the crowd around him.

A mix of humor and poetry are woven together with intimate stories from his past delivered as if you are sitting around a table with family and friends, speaking frankly with little to no inhibition.

Stories about his father, his family, brief meaningful and random encounters with strangers fuel the heart of the message. His country Zimbabwe, politics, time spent in London and his art are just a few of the abstract concepts prompting the heart-felt connection given to his audience.

I liken it to imagining what it would have been like to be in the presence of Van Gogh, Dali, Picasso or one of the greats clearly articulating the pain, joy, angst and passions that they live with and are able to transfer into creating their work.

‘Transference’ is a unique experience in Alameda that you won’t want to miss.

Studio 23 acts as a studio and workshop during the day for artists and owners, Jessica and Wesley E. Warren.  Once a month the Studio is open to the public and will feature work by local bay area artists.

“Ideally, we want Studio 23 to provide a place for artists to conspire and inspire each other, as well as finding innovative ways to give back to the community. We offer workshops as well as creative events designed to nurture and promote local talent.”

– Jessica Warren
Artists and Co-Founder of Alameda Artist Group and Studio 23.


The gallery’s mission is to support local artists; those that are already established and emerging artists new on the scene.  The gallery will focus on unique, contemporary, experimental, and modern visual art as well as classic techniques with a fresh perspective.

We also provide excellent design and promotion services.

Artists Group

The Alameda Artists Group, a Bay Area artist collective with over 1500 members, regularly meet at Studio 23 for workshops and sketch groups. ( Most of the work on display will consist of work created by members of Alameda Artists Group.

Many artists in the collective paint with traditional medium such as acrylic, oil, and watercolor, but we also have artists that paint with coffee, house paint, spray paint and other non-traditional medium.

You may have seen the giant metal robot sculpture installation “Friendly Lord Zondar”, by artist Wesley Warren,  now at “The Local Coffee Shop”. He was created with recycled metal and mechanical parts sourced from local scrap yards and urban ore.


Studio 23 is hidden behind the old Alameda Lock and Glass building at 2309 B Encinal Ave. Just off Park St., between Oak and Alameda Ave. Right around the corner from Lucky 13. 

Regular gallery hours are second Fridays between 7:30 PM and 10:30 PM and for special events.

Studio 23 was founded in the summer of 2013.
