Adam Rompel is apparently finally closing down Lucky Tackle, the upbeat installation-oriented art space on San Pablo Avenue in North Oakland. This will be a big loss locally, as Rompel is an extremely astute curator who has managed to consistently present art that is both fun and good. He’s shown, among others: Jason Byers, Christian Maychack, Juliana Paciulli, Michael Arcega and Yoshimi Hayashi. I have never seen a bad show there.
The current exhibition, the next-to-last, is Tim Sullivan’s Amazing Luminous Fountains, which is up until August 13th. The one-night-only closing exhibition will be For Tomorrow: the very, very last lucky tackle show ever, honest on August 20th.
