This article was originally published on California Home + Design.
Experience art and design from the top creators around the country at the FOG Design + Art Fair. Presented in collaboration with SFMOMA (now putting on mobile events while their main site is under renovation), the three-day fair celebrates the last 100 years of modernism. Attendees can listen to panel discussions from the SFMOMA’S Modern Art Council over breakfast, check out how computers manipulate a portable spray paint device, sit in on a talk with London-based designer and architect Ron Arad, and more artistic goodness! Tickets are $15 online and $20 at the door. Preview events: January 15 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. and January 16 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.; Open to the public: January 17–18, 11 a.m.–7 p.m.; January 19, 11 a.m.–5 p.m. Fort Mason Center Pavilion, Marina and Buchanan Street, San Francisco.

Swing by the Petaluma Arts Center to check out how artists are breathing new life into the ancient craft of weaving. Join contemporary artists Candace Crockett, Ulla de Larios, Suki Russack, Barbara Shapiro, and Sandra Erickson as they demo spinning, basket weaving, double weaving, and – if you have kids in tow - card weaving. Admission is free, though suggested donation is $5 to support the center. Open Thursdays through Mondays, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., 230 Lakeville Street, at E. Washington in central Petaluma.
