Craftsman and Wolves

Craftsman and Wolves

Last year, my dear friend Kailey and I made a pact to have brunch at a much touted bakery on Valencia Street in the Mission district by the name of Craftsman and Wolves. I must admit, I was very pleasantly surprised when I strolled into Craftsman and Wolves like a wide eyed kid plastered to the jewel like display cases of delicately crafted patisserie (brownies, rolls and cube cakes) as well as the expertly constructed viennoiserie (croissants, brioche, morning buns and financier).

Georgia O’Keefe’s Alligator Pears

Georgia O’Keefe’s Alligator Pears

You’re in for a sweet treat at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, Georgia O’Keefe at Lake George exhibit thru May 11, 2014.

From magnified botanical compositions to panoramic landscapes, the works in this exhibition offer a deeper understanding of the spirit of place that was essential to O’Keeffe’s artistic evolution.

From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O’Keeffe retreated annually to Alfred Stieglitz’s family estate on Lake George in upstate New York, where she reveled in the discovery of new subject matter and found respite in the rural setting without the distractions of city life. O’Keeffe’s experiences there inspired one of the most transformative and productive periods of her career, energizing the development of her signature modernist style.

The term Alligator Pear came from the shape of the fruit resembling a pear and the Mexican Aguacate, French Advocaat, Portuguese Abacate and Dutch Avocatpeer.
