May 6, 7, & 8, The Orchid Society of California is having an event a the Lake Merritt Garden Center. You can enter your orchid to be judged if you bring it by 9:00 am.

Here's a little list of some art gallery shows, going on now.
Check out "American Vinyl" at the Compound Gallery, http://thecompoundgallery.com/.
Reusing old records, the show is interactive.
You are invited to rifle through bins of lushly painted record prints, and listen to the images of impasto oil painted records hung on the walls. Each record is laden with seemingly familiar phrases of a dead American moment.“Epic Tomorrow”, “Incandescent Past”, “Finite” and “Infinite” are titles which are found floating freely on the visual music and prompts human response.
"Domicile Tendencies" runs through May 13 at Chandra Cerrito Contemporary, 480 23rd St., Oakland. http://ChandraCerritoContemporary.com.
Homer Flynn's work with the Residents will be on display at Johansson Projects, 2300 Telegraph Ave. Oakland, CA. http://johanssonprojects.net/phpflickr/current_show.php
