The Breakfast Group: Jive and Java
Exhibition featuring artworks by 30 noted artists of the East Bay’s “Breakfast Group” and complemented by a series of weekly programs, talks and workshops. For five decades, an ever changing group of painters, glass artists, sculptors, film-makers and photographers have been meeting weekly over breakfast to discuss ideas, artists, world events, movies, life and sports! They gather because of their common devotion to art and a desire to be with other like-minded people. The group originated in the mid-’60s when art professors at the University of California at Berkeley including Sid Gordin, a well-known abstract painter and sculptor, and Elmer Bischoff, a pioneer in the Bay Area figurative school of art began meeting to talk about art. Funding for The Breakfast Group: Jive and Java exhibition has been provided by Oliver & Company.
