Lonnie Lee, who is the owner and curator at Vessel, is a long-time Oakland resident and originally opened Vessel in Berkeley in 2004.
Vessel Gallery offers curatorial consulting to both corporate and private collectors. Services include art acquisition, installation, exhibition design, collection management, and commissioned works. Select works are available on a rental basis. Renting art gives the collector the opportunity to make sure that the installation is a good fit before committing to it. It is also great for those who like to rotate their exhibits frequently. You can view and purchase stunning crafts and jewelry (and art) created by local artists on www.shop-vessel.com.
