Photo from Legendary Locals of Oakland. Used by permission.Joyce Gordon is the owner of the Joyce Gordon Gallery and a giant in Oakland's art scene.

She opened her gallery in 2003, and was one of the earliest folks to be a part of Art Murmur. Additionally, she often shows the work of black artists (both from Oakland and from other parts of the country and world), highlighting work that doesn't always get shown in other galleries.

Here's a great profile of her in the Oakland Tribune.
