Over 12 years ago, the Book Club began gathering every Thursday at Café Van Kleef, an Oakland bar owned by artist Peter Van Kleef. The Book Club remains an important conduit for information sharing and camaraderie among a long-standing group. Over a dozen member artists continue to support and contribute to Bay Area art exhibits and share an exchange of ideas and concepts in the art world. As the art world explodes exponentially, artists must maintain contact with one another in order to remain knowledgeable and viable. There is no substitute for the first-hand information on exhibits, lectures and books that are discussed in the weekly gatherings.  The artists support each other’s individual accomplishments and exhibits and are constantly producing and sharing new artwork.  Members get inspired by what others accomplish, and the Book Club is a prime example of artistic camaraderie.
