I had the opportunity to go preview the Fog Art + Design Fair 2015 yesterday morning. Really it was a chance for me to go see the show, have a cup of tea, snap a few pictures and write a blog post! Little more than a cheap marketing opportunity by Fog Fair, which I willingly joined. I’m a sucker, as I love many of the furniture companies and art galleries that exhibit at the fair. Art furniture, check! Top tier New York art galleries, check. Difficult art, check! As I walked around the fair with a good friend, I realized that this is the stuff which CCA alumni love: process, difficult, intellectual, not-mass-market, just like a CCA degree. To say the least, I was in my own little heaven. This is the world of design which I prefer for myself. So if you get a chance this weekend, go to Fort Mason and check out the fair. It’s not Room and Board furniture, but it is interesting arts and crafts.
Now, for the crunchy ceramics!
