Nancy "The Berkeley Art House & Cultural Center is a well organized venue with a nice feel and cooperative staff. Seems good to me for all sorts of events. Highly recommended!" Keith "Thank you Harold at Art House Co-op for honoring the gift in me. The band appreciated your special blend of hospitality. It was heart felt and genuine! THE BLACK PEARL Project's Mazella Houston and Larrie Ray Noble Sr. can’t wait for an opportunity to return with a whole new host of family and friends! Your house is a great house! Thanks for giving to the music, Sir…m" J Harold Adler, founder and curator of the Art House Gallery and Cultural Center, has been a fixture in the Berkeley arts community for over 40 years and he's still going strong. Well known for his photographic coverage of the Beat scene, the Free Speech Movement, and the Anti-Vietnam War Movement, Harold just doesn't know when to quit. Thank goodness. Adler is deeply committed to keeping alive the vision and aesthetics of 1960s Berkeley and that's more than groovy, man. But don't be fooled. Despite the nostalgia on the walls and Bob Dylan's records playing in the background, Adler's curation is vital and contemporary, looking forward as well as back. Likewise for his current photographic efforts, which are on display and well worth a look. If you haven't been to the Art House Gallery & Cultural Center in Berkeley, check it out. Maybe the best venue for music in the Bay Area! A variety of great music including performances by many legendary 60's musicians, posters by 60's poster artist Dennis Loren and even an authentic 60's light show! Jan Steckel, Poet adds: What a groovy place! Love the décor (including the hundreds of vinyl records, the turntable, the lava lamps, the colored light bulbs, the paintings, the posters, the photos) and loved Harold's guitar and harmonica playing and Clive's friendly, shoulders-shaking-with-laughter MCing. The audience was responsive and collegial with a very high-quality open mike. The features kicked ass and gave out free books. It's like I died and went to poetry heaven. The Art House and Cultural Center opened in June 2009 as an art gallery with cultural events on the weekends. The events are diverse and range from poetry readings to live jazz, 60's rock bands, acoustic unplugged folk music, singer song writers, multimedia performances, benefit events and private parties. Mr. Adler operates from the dual vision that “Variety is the Spice of Life” and “Expect the Unexpected.” His ultimate goal is to continue to celebrate and applaud the rich vital arts, culture and legacy that IS Berkeley. The building in which the Art House Gallery and Cultural Center is interesting in and of itself. Historically it was a blacksmith's shop 100 years ago and then an industrial welding shop 50 years ago known to long-time Berkeley residents as “The Berkeley Craftsman” turning out beautiful, decorative ornamental railings for stairways, fences and houses. The Art House Gallery celebrates the arts and culture and legacy of Berkeley both past and present. Check out the website or telephone listed above for further information. We do take credit Cards! We are open for viewing every Friday and Saturday 11am -2pm

Harold Adler is one of our East Bay treasures. Adler has stayed in touch with and kept alive an essential vision of our culture: the rush of idealism and compassion that crossed social boundaries in this country throughout the 1960s and afterwards.

In the fifty-plus years that I have known Harold Adler, his focus has not wavered. His venue, “Art House and Cultural Center,” regularly hosts musical events, from flamenco and punk rock to hippie groups, including members of well-know and uplifting bands who have been playing for decades and themselves keep alive the visions spawned those many years ago. Adler also puts on poetry events, among which Richard Loranger and I curated a vigorous series, “Poetry Unbound,” through the early 2000s.

How important is the vision today, the vision that Adler keeps reinvigorating? Society has shifted around to where it seems a difficult and subtle iteration of what we were reacting to in the 1950s and 60s. Today young people are rediscovering and using strategies and life-style coping mechanisms to alter and survive the MacArthy-like, military, and overly commercial aspects of the modern world. We have a government that does not tell the truth, a government that involves us and young people and our tax money in enterprises that, to put it mildly, do not have the approval of the people.

For Harold Adler to help keep the conversation going is extremely important. The public discourse is so limited we must generally reach outside, to people like Adler, to have valid information and to learn from each other how best to react. Art House events and panels help us realize how we must think and, indeed, how to think creatively in the face of current challenges.

We owe Harold Adler a debt of gratitude and I, for one, wish for our continuing approval and support of his Art House and Cultural Center.
