EVENTS Just got CCA’s exhibitions & events program in the mail. There seems to be quite a lot of interesting events. I kinda want to go check out An Evening with David Sedaris. It’s on October 29th @ 8:00pm
EVENTS Public Glass is a great nonprofit organization that was created to meet the needs of Bay Area artists working in hot glass, specifically glass blowing and casting by providing them with a great facility and gallery space. They will be holding their annual Hot Glass & Cold Beer, tomorrow 9/12 from 6-10 PM. You can tour the space, drink some beer, and watch featured artist Ferdinand Thierot sculpt glass. I took a beginners class at Public Glass and this was the ugly paper weight I made. I now have a new found respect for glass paperweights. They’re so hard to make!
EVENTS Just came back from the AIGA lecture series with Andy Spade as the guest speaker. I really enjoy what he has done to the Kate and Jack Spade labels. Unfortunately, him and his wife no longer run them. His new endeavour is a store/gallery called Partners & Spade. I’m really glad he’s gone in this direction. Partners & Spade is such a great environment for creative freedom. If you like the way Andy developed his fashion brand, you’ll probably also like Paul Smith.
SOEX GRAND OPENING
EVENTS Soex is moving into their new space and will be celebrating their grand opening and 35th anniversary on October 16th & 17th. The lovely lettering for their invites was designed by the talented peeps at MacFadden & Thorpe.
