"Join us at Transmission Gallery at 3 pm on September 16th for a special Dance Anywhere® performance with Beth Fein!"

09/01/2017

"Both Fein’s work and Miki’s, showing concurrently at Transmission Gallery, make use of a subtle and elegant sense of movement and color while relying on radically different strategies and perspectives..."

Join Beth Fein during Oakland First Friday to view her new exhibition at Transmission Gallery.

"Although largely abstract in nature, Fein’s installations and interactive pieces serve to locate us in a social landscape where common ground has seemingly evaporated in duel of opposition..."

Published August 15th, 2017 by Dewitt Cheng

"Fein’s work both as a dancer and creator of dances...investigates how movement and flow combine in art and life..."
