Carousel animals on show for three days in Oakland.
Stop by anytime from 5 to 10 P.M. on February 23, 10:30 to 5:30 on the 24th, and 10:30 to 4:30 on the 25th. You'll see about 60 restored animals (some for sale) from the master carvers of the heyday of the American carousel, roughly 1880 to 1920; these include Gustav Dentzel's realistic menagerie creatures and the tasseled horses of Charles Looff.
There'll be slide shows, restoration lectures, and books for sale. The studio is at 3246 Ettie Street, #3; from State 17 (Nimitz Freeway), take the Cypress Street exit and go east on 32nd Street to Ettie. There's free street parking.
