The Gallery Experience at B-Love's Guest House

The Gallery Experience at B-Love's Guest House


Celebrate Hip Hop history at B-Love's Guest House! We are excited to share our archive of rare photographs of  Bay Area 90's Hip Hop culture in a unique gallery in a beautiful victorian house in west Oakland.

With a 90's soundtrack in the background Oakland Picture Lady: Tales of the 90's Girl is a collection of fine art photographs, collages and short stories artist Traci Bartlow captured in the Bay Area in the 1990's

There are 30 fine art photographs & collages for guest to view while hearing stories of my experience as a hip-hop photojournalist working with local and national record labels, magazines, and recording artist.

Upon arrival guest will meet at the tree in front of the house to learn information about the historic neighborhood and property you are visiting. We will then walk up the stairs through a majestic archway of this queen Anne victorian house to the 2nd floor galleries. Upon entering guest will view original photographs of the Bay Area's music scene, and excerpts of the many short stories that accompany this exhibition. Next we will exit the 2nd floor and view the 1st floor gallery and garden featuring photographs of my neighborhood. In the summer months in the garden there are refreshments, music, places to dance or chill, and more photographs.

The guided tour will last 2 hours with breaks for guest to have refreshments and take in the art and music playlist on their own. The last 30 minutes open to questions, conversation, and expressions.
