"Since I'm a new dad there is a huge transition in my life where I'm adapting my old lifestyle to my new one. Like many artists, I'm selfish by nature and having to care for another brand new human teaches about time management, morality, and about yourself. It's also crazy to be changing diapers one minute and then in a police chase the next. So the work will have a feeling of hard meets soft." -OU

brockbrake I'm very,very excited to announce 'Subjects' by Jason Henry and Shawn Bush at Athen B. Gallery this July. Shawn and Justin introduced me to The Beerics, which started the path I followed for the past 5 years working with artists and creative minds alike. Jason is a new friend since I've moved out to The Bay. Our mutual relationship with skateboarding and our backgrounds as photojournalist made for the right conversations. 'Subjects' opening July 11th in Downtown Oakland. 4w

brockbrake An open letter to the community:

My name is Brock Brake and I will be curating exhibitions at Athen B. Gallery in Downtown Oakland. I, alongside Director Sorell Raino-Tsui, would like to express our gratitude for the opportunity to serve the neighborhood. In this letter, I would like to address both the artists we plan to work with and the community directly with our intent and promise.
I want the Oakland community to know that we will not operate in a vacuum within our space. We will extend our project outside of our space to include vibrant murals for neighborhood to enjoy. We would also like to welcome and encourage any opportunity to work alongside other local establishments. This cross-pollination provides an opportunity to create unique and exciting projects that may otherwise not occur. This includes work with other art establishments, educational programs, schools and local businesses in any capacity whether it’s curating artists for a mural on your building, providing guest artists to a local classroom or curating collaboratively with others.
To the artists we plan to work with in the future; thank you for all of your hard work and your support in our endeavor. We promise to work hand in hand with you every step of the way. We will provide you with much more than just walls. We will work tirelessly to make sure your exhibition is presented perfectly and promoted extensively. We will document every step of your process and help you build upon your career and portfolio. Our work won’t end after your exhibition with us. We are there to help support your career in any direction it takes you with ongoing promotion of your work as it grows. We look forward to working with you and calling you family.
With gratitude,

Brock Brake - Curator / Owner
Sorell Raino-Tsui - Director / Owner

brockbrake I'm proud to announce the arrival of the newest gallery in the Bay Area, my new baby, @athenbgallery. Located in Downtown Oakland, Athen B is the brain child of Sorell Raino-Tsui and myself. It's our vision of what we would like a gallery to be. I've spent the past five years learning the day to day operations of a functioning art gallery, all while building relationships with some of the worlds most talented creatives. I'm excited to share with you all of the really great things in store. I hope you enjoy. 4w
